A surprise gift

Recently I sent Jen a pile of old paper patterns for her to use in a mixed media project.
Yesterday I received this wonderful journal as a thank you gift from her.
She had used the patterns to make a fabric by stitching them together and then she painted them with gesso (I think).
Next she added some embellishments----------------------oh so beautiful.





Here is a close up of the embellishments-------------





And this is a close up of the back cover...................







And the inside sleeve and journal pages.







I love it Jen and thank you very much for making it for me.
