As you can see I have collaborated my first Fabric Art Journal into a slideshow at the top of my blog for those wishing to take an overall look at it.
I have enjoyed this work so much that I have decided to launch into a new, but much smaller in size, journal
(6" x 8"). The previous journal measures approx. 9" x 12" with quite a few extensions! I made this journal so that I could add text and pictures at a later stage thus leaving space opposite full collage pages.
The theme of this new one will be to honour some of the women who were painted (sometimes obsessively) by a small group of painters who formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in 1848. These painters included Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. Some of these collages will include small portraits of women such as Jane Burden and Elizabeth Siddal. This art work is among my most favourite!
