Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Fabric Book Tutorial

Thanks for visiting! I absolutely could not be more excited about the product I am featuring in today’s tutorial. Before I became a papercrafter, I sewed. I learned in my early teens. When I graduated from high school the one gift I hoped for was a sewing machine. One of the things that I love about Tim’s products is that everything works together. That brings me to today’s tutorial… a fabric mini book made from scratch featuring the new Eclectic Elements fabric and embellished inside with papers from the Lost and Found collection! Let’s get started… Begin with a 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of beige cotton muslin.

Toss some crinkle ribbon around on the craft sheet to take advantage of the remaining stain and water. Wring the fabric out in a dry cloth and dry with a heat tool. Cut out a clock from the clock fabric (PWTH003.NEUTR ) along with a piece of batting. Sew along all of the inked lines. Stamping with Gelli™ 1,000 Artist Journal Pages, Dawn DeVries Sokol.

It’s a fun way for each individual to get Artsy while Journaling one’s life stories. Art as therapy is the premise and, evidently, judging by the sheer number of blogs and folks who are doing it, it must be working!. The art, itself, may be the therapy, using the raw emotion to influence their design in the art. But, more often, some journaling is added to the piece. It can be hidden, as in the piece below, if it is posted and the artists wishes the journaling to remain private. Some of us prefer digital art journaling. I am continuously updating this listing. And, finally, some links are to the website’s main page.

I especially love journals that incorporate a wide range of media and texture experiments because these journals are literally bursting at the seams and are so fun to look through! You can use a huge number of different materials in your journal, and you can really let your creativity run free without judgement. The most popular materials are pens (markers, felt tips, micron pens etc) and paints (acrylic, watercolor, oil etc), although I've seen everything from salt to tea bags being used! More materials you can use include: magazine pages, recycled book pages, ephemera, crayons, pencils, photos, pastels, newspaper, inks, different kinds of paper (tissue, crepe, parchment etc), leaves, and thin fabrics like muslin and cheesecloth.

And remember...every page does not need to be a masterpiece. Art Journal Every Day Archive. Make an easy Art Journal.
