Rusty Journal

Anyone remember this from a while ago?

I've got quite a stash of rusted fabrics now so I decided to do something with some of them.
And this is what I came up with - a Rusty Journal.

More rusted fabric for the inside. The pages are just painted with Dr Ph Martins Radiant Inks which are concentrated watercolour dyes, maybe I should have tried painting them with rusty water instead.

This is a close up of the front showing some of the rusted lace that I used.


The technique I have used for creating the fabric for the front cover will appear in the Premier Issue of Fibre&Stitch.

This is lovely. I struggled putting my book together, but obviously it can be done nicely. especially like the raggy spine. Fantastic, I'm jealous.

I am having trouble introducing some variety in my comments as there is always something on your post that makes me say "fabulous" or "stunning"!! Seriously though, this is just fabulous! I am dying to know about the textured fabric - lucky I am subscribed...

Dy said...

Ditto to the lady above, I just want to keep saying "gorgeous" over and over! And it is, I love your rusted fabric and what you've done with it, and the rusted lace is, well, gorgeous! :-)

Looks great Lynda--You know it's not that long ago when we would have thrown out anything that had rust marks on it--how things change.

Oh I love it! can i ask one more annoying question! Do you use rag rugging canvas for the spine? and do you have to have the latch hook tool or can you use something els? Sorry I'm a nag!
