Pendants for swap on atcs for all

Journal cover is muslin with collaged ephemera or painted paper towels, and pva glue.

The journal covers were cut from dried muslin, then machine stitched for decoration. I connected a loop to the top of the journal cover using the sewing machine. The loop connects the rest of the necklace to the journal. Leather cording or wax linen thread was stitched to the sides of the journal to make a closure. I then bound the pages of the journal to the journal cover.

Each journal has 10 pages and the pendant measures a bit smaller then 2x2.
