Cloth, Paper, Scissors


Since its debut, Cloth Paper Scissors has been the premier resource for truly creative mixed media artists. It covers all types of fiber arts and collage work, including mixed media, assemblage, art dolls, visual art journals, rubber stamping, stamp carving, printmaking, creative embroidery and book arts. Readers will receive inspiration and tips on watercolors, collage, lettering, metal, fabric, wearable art like jewelry and much more!

This article is the story of a Nature Journal, one made from my own hands just for the July/August issue of Cloth Paper Scissors.

It begins, "I have been keeping nature journals for years. Even when I was a teenager, journaling about nature made me feel connected the world outside and I was grateful for the things around me..."

My nature journals are not just filled with sketches and writing although those are parts of them with things begging to be touched and examined.

I was thrilled to see that my art was featured on the cover! Inside this magazine there is also a smaller article featuring shots of my River Garden Studio.
