A handmade Journal I purchased but did not really like the covers. So I altered them!
A large foam stamp imprinted into Flexible joint compound, sea glass with melted Opals, Mica powders, Mica circle, paints, inks, dyed cheesecloth, bead trim. I pressed a rubber stamp into the molten Opals.
The bottom photo is the back. This I covered with hemp fibre paper, painted it with gel medium, and brushed mica powders onto it, as well as metallic colored paints.

I started this piece with an odd shaped piece of cotton batting, to which I applied a variety of fabric paints. I then placed pieces of organza over it and felted it down. I placed wool roving here and there over the organza, felted that down, then did free-motion stitching all over, adding the flower trim. I made an image transfer onto glue-backed cotton and sewed that on. I put some medium on a piece of sea glass, 3 colors of Opals, heated it, and glued it to the bottom.
