New Journal Prompt Cards

Here are the first set of cards I received in the Art Journal Prompt Swap over on crafster.org.
So the swap was to put a journal prompt or art journal technique on one side and then your interpretation on the other. Red and random lines for the first two. 

Dreams and colors cards 3 and 4.

Works in progress

A view of what I am working on today. I am in a swap at crafster.org making art journal prompt and technique cards. On one side of the cards you write the technique or prompt and then create your version on the other side. Good way to get new techniques and prompts. I have 30 to create by January 16th! The other are art journals drying.

Drying time means ironing time!

The Wizard of Oz-Graphic 45 Album

If you love "The Wizard Of Oz" this is the book for you! This album uses the Graphic 45 paper and measures 6 1/4 X 6 1/4 X 3 1/4 and has lots of space for photos and journaling. Every page has a multiple fold outs and pockets and is embellished with ribbon, glossy accents, metal charms, fibers and glitter. I have included little known facts about the making of the movie and those involved. You could easily add pictures and your own writing to this album. Please see my etsy site for purchase information. http://www.etsy.com/shop/fabricfriend The cover has the title and poppies attached by pop dots to add dimension. Glossy accents on the red ribbons add a little sparkle. The closure is a metal button and loop.
The first page features the Tin Man and The Scarecrow. The Tin Man is on a flip out page and has a little metal heart attached.
Page two has a large pocket in the back and metal charms.
Pages three and four feature the Wicked Witch and the Flying Monkeys. They include a large pull out page and a tri-fold.

Wonders of the World-Graphic 45 Circus Album

This is a star book that I made using the "Le Cirque" paper by Graphic 45. If you have not seen the Graphic 45 paper in person please find a store that sells it and take a look. It is amazing. They have a new line out called "A Place in Time" that features paper and embellishments for every month of the year. 
Closed it measures 4" x 7". When open it measures 7" x 7" x 7" and looks like a star when viewed from the top. It is held closed and open by a ribbon tie. Each section has 4 mini pages and a window with a hanging tag. Some of the pages have a pocket with a journal tag. Lots of places for pictures and writing. Please see my etsy site for additional photos/information.

Life's A Circus-A Year of Mini's!

 A circus themes box and 12 mini albums! One for each month of the year. A great way to document the happenings of each month. The box measures 6" wide, 7 3/4" tall and is 3 1/4" deep. The cover has a title "Good Times", a monkey on a circus wagon and a blank ticket possible for the year, family name etc... Open the front cover and inside are 12 books each measuring 3 x 3 x 3/4". I have covered the outside of the book with coordinating paper and painted the edges but left the inside blank so you can add paper, paint and/or photos. So cute!
