It's been over a year since I made this fabric art journal using upholstery scraps. I have been working on filling it with things that inspire me and experimenting with new techniques.
The pages are so full now I can barely get it closed.
Here is a glimpse of the artwork I've been doing inside it...
One of my favorite paintings is Van Gogh's Starry Night.
I was inspired to try my own interpretation of the artwork
using acrylic paint on gessoed cardstock.
I added glitter to the night sky and Ranger's Stickles to the moon and stars.
One thing I love about studying art is finding things in the painting I never noticed before. I discovered the rolling hills and the little town under the night sky once I really examined Van Gogh's work. This exercise has given me an even deeper appreciation for this piece.
