Fabric Quilt Journals

Lately, I have been really getting into trying new things with fabric. I spent some time looking through Pinterest…way too much time…and I saw so many textile art craft ideas. A while back, I made a fabric journal for my sister. She and I have been having conversations about collage, Gelli art printing, and other fun stuff. I have some Gelli art plates on order, so while I am waiting, I decided to play around with some of the memos that my brother sent me. I started cutting and adding applique. I quilted and outlined with thread.
I made two signatures, but I have not yet put them together. I am thinking I will use other fabric tomorrow to make signatures to add to the back of the two I made today. I also am looking through my beads and buttons to see what I can use to embellish the signatures. I’m thinking that I might add some pearl beads on the gray and white embroidery border on the blue signature.

This is what I have so far. I need to put it away for a bit and think of what I want to do next.
