i mailed off my first journal for this RR. The theme was the Texture of Life. This theme was somewhat baffling so I just went ahead with an idea of returning to crazy quilting where I love to use fabric and stitches to create texture to create a fantasy landscape with silks and various threads. My inability to convey measurements to a project really nailed me it was smaller than the page. So it was mounted on black felt and the surrounding page was re-painted. Re painted because the book owner had painted a background on to all the pages and it needed a color change for my landscape.
The next page is all about friends, sharing a bottle of wine and cats. All vibrant textures in my life. Well what really happened is I found this image, Bahama Mama, in my stash and it jumped out saying "use me, use me". It must have come off an old card. So then I made a few changes to the original plan and was very pleased with the result
