I’ve been exploring the path less traveled…again. I was compelled to make this little sheep ‘ART JOURNAL’. My first attempt with this experiment was my heart-shaped little journal a week or so ago~~~remember? I just fancy anything and everything SHEEPY. Don’t ask me why, but they’re my favorite ‘subject‘.
The front and back ‘covers’ are fashioned from polymer clay (it measures approx 3″ X 4″). The ‘images’ were impressed into the clay with rubber stamps and then baked in the oven as directed on the package. Painted with acrylics, stained, sealed and bound/reinforced with leather and waxed twine. I added a few beads too.
This is the sort of project that is NEVER-ending! You can add and embellish as many pages to fill your journal as you desire. I like things a bit prim and worn so I used bits of this and that found in my junk drawer, sewing box, knitting stash, button jar, old magazines…you get the idea!
I tucked in a few recipes, herbal anecdotes, dye recipes, sheep/fiber facts, etc…just for fun/interest.
PRACTICAL…? NO! But, oh what fun I had creating! My spinning guild loved it!
