Journaling and Fabric Page

Life is just a bowl of cherries...well I could say it's a bowl of something else-but i won't.
Ok- so i felt like eating my house last night and decided that's really not what my body needed (not really what my mind needed), so i grabbed a stack of mags, a stick of glue and my markers. I guess i had some "mind candy"- that's what i'll call it. I loved it- so did my mind. Before you know it- i had a couple real cool journal pages and i felt occupied and content. dang- i hate it when i feel spastic and restless. it's not about being bored...it's something else- there is no name for the feeling i sometimes have. anyway....here's what i did and i love it.

This is a vintage page i am working on. It's done with lots of different fabrics (creating layers w/ fabric) and lots of tid bits. This is far from being finished but thought i would share it's current stage. I used TAP (transfer artist paper by Leslie Riley) to transfer my vintage photo. i just love old photos.
Have an awesome night and i thank God it's Friday eve!! I so need a happy hour...


  1. Love the collage pages and the transferred images. You'll have to give me a tutorial on that. Can't wait to see what you have for me to work on next week. Have fun this weekend!

  2. Jodi--I have to remember that I have a blog logistical question for you on Monday.

  3. Sorry about the mystery me twice--see followers. When I go to edit it looks good but still won't link up. It's driving me crazy. Maybe I'll figure it out one of these days.

  4. Jodi, could the word you are looking for be "restless"? I know how you feel; why is it that the first thing that comes to mind is to eat-- darn.

    Love your work. You continue to push outside of the box - and it's all good.


  5. Jodi, I have been checking you blog regularly in hopes of seeing what your next project is and what you've been up to. Keep in touch.


  6. Where have you been? waiting and hoping for a post soon...want to see more of you artwork. I'm hoping to work on your box on vaca. Let's see what craftiness I can concoct.
