{Erosion Bundle Project part 5?}...

While I still have a lot of pages to create I thought I would give
you a bit of a peek into the creation of this art journal.
One of the page spreads so far. 
In order to allow the Erosion Bundle fabric to be a dominate feature in this journal I'm going to keeping the layering limited.
The sheerish layered fabric on the right was dyed in blueberries to blend with the
original bundled fabrics coloring. 
 Currently this page will become the cover.
Again I took the commercial printed fabric and dyed it in blueberries.
This spread has been embellished with embroidery stitches representing
the fields and roadside niches of tiny yellow flowers that are everywhere here this time of year.  They
are so spectacular.  I spent the day just walking barefoot in them.  And as you can
read from the poem on the left I was not the only one enjoying it. 

It reads

Forget not that the earth delights
to feel your bare feet,
 and the winds long
to play with your hair.
