vintage ephemera journal pgs

i took a class several years ago with patti van doren, tuscan rose, called wall calendar journal.  it is a totally awesome concept of making a journal out of a 12X12 wall calendar.  AND a beautiful way to turn bits into beautiful!  after these background pages come together, then the experimenting begins.  i have collected SO MUCH vintage ephemera and wall paper books over my years of junking and especially since much of the written word has become electronic.  better get back to sewing.....   ;D

SB...artistic quilters--prom couture mini art quilt

when i signed up for this swap i thought "how hard can it be, mini couture."  i've been watching project runway, seems doable right.  well, not so much really.  as i experimented & fumbled thru several possibilities, i soon discovered that i need much much more practice with couture mini.  i ended up using a barbie dress & embellishing it.   aahhhh, more to my liking...  blest be  ;D
