Journal cover


 
I've been experimenting with techniques from Sherrill Kahn's book 'Creative Mixed Media'. The round embellishment on the right side of the embroidery is made from a painted cotton makeup pad. The yarns are glued on with matte medium.

Great work. I was lucky enough to know Sherrill when we lived in California-a lady with lots of ideas.

I've got plenty of those make-up pads that have dried out, was going to toss them. Sorry about the poor sunflower, she is looking a tad tired now. Hope you've saved the seeds!
