This is a mixed-media art journal cover that I created using Silk Sari Ribbon. I quilted it onto black cotton muslin in vertical strips, then to add more texture and color variation I layered the ribbons, alternating smaller and wider widths. The block letters below which, of course, read "JOURNAL" are created using stamped canvas which is overdyed with diluted liquid acrylic paints, fabric art markers, and free-motion stitching. I created a looped fringe with the ribbon for the bound edge of the journal for more tactile interaction with the journal, and finished off the "Ribbon Quilt" with a sprinkling of hand-sewn beads.

I really love this, the way way the colors just feather into each other, with the frayed edges.
