I stuffed my heart with art!

Heart Art Journal Cover3 - Erin Bassett Pin It

I actually finished my most recently finished art journal's cover way back in October.  I tend to do the covers last, after I've finished all the pages.

This is one of Donna's fabric inspiration journals.  I just cut out a piece of canvas and sewed it to the cover using a contrasting thread, and then painted over it.  

I then created a collage of found papers and scrapbook papers.  Once it was dry I used my Cricut Expression to cut out the heart and some flowers which you'll see below.  {I did this before I had my Silhouette Cameo to play with!}

I sewed my heart to the cover leaving a little gap that I could stuff batting through.  After it was stuffed I sewed it up completely, added the closure button back on (I had to take it off to put the heart on), and added the word "art" with fuzzy Thickers.  It makes me happy to look at it.

And what about those flowers you ask?  Well I put them on the last enclosure in this art journal, and added a bit of lace trim to them with staples.

And not wanting to waste perfectly good collaged paper, so I added the negative to my new art journal.  Now it's set for me to do something with!
