Collaged diary and address books


For Christmas I treated myself to some collage sheets and packs from Traci Bautista, collage visions and Lisas altered art (all can be found on Etsy). I have printed some of these sheets off onto canvas sheets added some buttons and threads and made some book covers out of hessian. The smaller of the books also features some scrunched up magazine pages that when scrunched takes on fabric qualities and can be sewn through.

These are A+mazing!!!
You can also put a thin coat of mod podge onto almost any paper and adhere it to fabric such as cheap muslin, allow it to dry and then sew on it like fabric. I tried this out as an experiment, and it hasn't failed me yet. It softens the paper and you don't have to worry about it falling apart when you stitch it.
