I wanted to mimic the stone for my background so I started with
a template from Stencil Girl - which Frieda introduced me to!
various spray inks were used and I let the inks run . . .
A sponge with Adirondack ink pads in Terra Cotta and Butterscotch filled in the white spaces
The finished background below
I had a lot of photos of the town that I wanted to include,
so I chose 3 to go directly on the page and 8 for a folding booklet.
Accordion style . . .
with photos on both sides, attached with washi tape
and I journaled about it, free hand with a permanent marker
And this is only about the town and what I experienced being there! Inside the museum, Frieda welcomed vistors and gave a talk about her process when spending a year making one journal quilt a week, sized A4 (8.5x11") or 10x10". I videoed a part of her Gallery Talk and you are welcome to view it here via this link or click below if you are viewing on the blog!
As I said to Frieda in a comment yesterday, this was a trip of a lifetime for me!
