Stitched journal page.

Welcome to my blog, I'm so delighted to have been asked to be the Documented Life Project™ featured artist for May 9th. The theme for this month is Touchy Feely (texture). The art challenge for this week is Stitching, and the prompt is “All that I am after is a life full of laughter.” 

For this theme I gathered up paper, paint, fabric and thread and I set off creating my journal page. I hope you enjoy this time-lapse step by step video of me working on my page,
