journal

My journal for last week is 40{52}. Hard to believe that I am up to 40 journals already this year and that the year is almost over... where did the time fly...

My plan for the journals of October is to use up scraps from all the journals so far. There is a multitude of materials here: vintage brocade, plastic, pattern paper, tissue paper, plastic netting; and a multitude of techniques: painting, free-hand machine embroidery, hand stitching. I am pretty happy with the way this piece turned out and I like the vaguely landscapish look of it...

interesting composition, indeed. I've been sitting here mentally rotating it 90 degrees, and 90 degrees, and 90 degrees. As best as I can tell, it works in any orientation. If I may be so bold, my friend (and not to belabor the idea), I think this is closer to how "simple" comes out of your fingers.
