bird journal cover and playing with pastels (3 muses challenge)

I made a little fabric notebook cover today with the dyed fabric I did last week..the front is covered in painted and printed fabric with lots of free motion stitching on it..have added it to my Etsy store as I have sold most of my items! Planning on making some more fabric journal covers soon so keep checking my Etsy ..you will find it just to the right!




Had a play with the pastels I recently recieved and decided to do some really colourful pages as everyone needs lots of colour in their lives..quite like the effect of scratching away the layered pastels to reveal the page underneath. The pages were inspired by a song I was listening to while running in the gym the other day.."its a new dawn, its a new day and I'm feeling good...." dont you just love that song and the meaning behind it...
