I've been drawing on transparencies using a wipe-out pen - tracing over magazine faces using a continuous line. All in the hope of being able to draw faces easily using the sewing machine. I traced the face drawn on the transparency onto tissue paper with a transfer pencil and then transferred the face onto fabric using the iron. Then I stitched. Way too much fun. Someday I'll stitch without all that work beforehand. I have this fixation on faces, I'm afraid.

The only thing left in order for the journal to be complete is to get some prints made of some of my many digital images to add to the last section of the journal. I'm still going through the 1000+ images though I'm just about finished.
Here are three of my "artsy" photos to whet your appetite!
The hand door knockers!
The beautiful stone carvings, especially the faces!
Niki de Saint Phalle's sculptures, some with yarn clothing!
