I want to make 3D beaded art quilts so I got the fabric I thought I needed & off I went.
But when I started on my 'first' page I realized that even tho this has a kind of 3D aspect to it, this is not what my mind's eye saw.
Although it doesn't show in the picture, the mermaid & seahorse are attached with a felt backing, so that they are raised slightly but not with the effect that I wanted to achieve.
Also, I was going to have my journal as a book with the pages attaching to the left of the beaded page & that no longer appealed either.
Today I checked out my friend Grace's blog & was encouraged to name my journal, thinking that would aid my Muse who seems to be in hiding at the moment - Thanks Grace
So now, I'm working on a new start with a new slant & hopefully I'll have something to share soon
