Mix It Monthly - fabric challenge

This is a journal page that I made for Piarom's Mix It Monthly challenge which is "fabric" for February.

The page began as a page that I used to blot leftover color sprays from stencils. I kind of like the idea of leaving the white space. Usually I have a hard time not covering every square inch.

For the fabric part I used a piece of muslin that I'd used a while ago to practice image transfers onto fabric. I enhanced it a bit with ink and stitched around it a few times then glued it to the center. I took another muslin scrap and used Stazon ink to stamp the word "fly" and glued that as well.

Finally I finished the page with some marks and doodles.


  1. Fun! I really need to drag my sewing machine out of storage so that I can do things like this too.

  2. What a wonderful idea, Renee! Sooo love seeing sewings in a journal :) I wish I had a machine too, to use this kind of technique! Your bird looks awesome, seems the transfer has worked very well!
