strips n scraps

i made this notebook cover for this month's fiber arts/mixed media challenge. you should check it out, it's a very inspirational group of nearly 2000 artists. i'm the challenge master there this year - we have nice prizes!

my february challenge for the group is to create a fiber art or mixed media piece that is loosely based on a traditional quilt block or setting. so i went digging through my fabric and ribbon scraps and pulled out a handful of different pieces. i tried to work quickly, without thinking too much - i usually end up liking what i create that way!
i stitched the patchwork to a sheet of cardstock with timtex interfacing in between.

my plan is to punch jump rings through the washers to bind the cover to a stack of sketch paper, with grungeboard on the back.
