Orvieto Journal Cover
I felt inspired to make a cover for my journal that I was bringing here to the UK and Orvieto .
From this photo of the Duomo in Orvieto I cut this stamp which I then stamped onto white fabric
Stamped the word Orvieto on the front
Used a rubbing plate for some additional texture of the bricks
Painted the background with fabric paints
Foiled some of the lines and the lettering
Hand stitched with hand dyed threads
Final embellishment of some beads.
I have already started filling it with sketches, colour exercises and some quilt ideas.
