be.LOVE.play handmade art journal

DESCRIPTION | Handmade art journal by mixed media artist Traci Bautista
This freestyle machine stitched folded art quilt journal is filled with a collection of random sized decorated painted pages, colorful printed papers with hand stenciled prints, painted pattern chipboard and monoprint printmaking paper.  A few pages inside have stitched embellished designs. Each journal is one-of-a-kind with layers hand painted fabrics, dyed fabric & papers and some have hand lettered words. The journal cover is made of a painted fabric and cardboard collage with the words "BE" "LOVE and "Play". This journal spine is stitched with fabric. The book can be kept folded or it is also made to be hung on the wall as an art quilt. This journal was created in June 2015.

The journal has patchwork art quilted paper/chipboard hand painted & stitched covers, hand painted paper, painted fabric remnants. 

Each of my handmade journal tells a story, they are dimensional moving paintings..stitched collages. The random-sized pages flip and fold out to create a "choose your own adventure" experience. There is no front or back, they can be turned in any direction. This special collection opens up to create art quilt wall hangings. Many hours of painting, mark-making and stitching went into making these one-of-a-kind handmade books. My hope is that when my handmade books find new homes, they bring inspiration with every turn of the page.
