Journal Cover

In keeping with my "do art everyday" promise to myself, I finally got back to finishing this journal cover. I had a lot of fun using beads to capture and hold on the little shisha mirrors.  The fabric was hand-dyed using Seta Colour paints.  I created the texture by laying cheesecloth on the wet paint before putting it out in the sun to dry (this was done in the hot summer sun).  The secondary bonus was that I ended up with some great dyed cheesecloth that I can use in another project.
