#49 of 52 projects

I was looking through the ideas journal for the 52 projects and realized that I hadn't used postage stamps on any of the pieces.
Components: The turquoise painted background fabric was first rust dyed, a few of the markings are still evident. Two muslin patches, painted and marked with black ink. Three postage stamps, machine stitched in a haphazard manner, and found object circle stamp complete this 4x6 mail art piece.

Quote: Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly. Lanston Hughes.

Question: do any of you know of an online tutorial for making fabric books. I ran across one a few weeks and didn't bookmark it. The pages were created from painted muslin and machine stitched together. Thanks!

Love the postage stamp piece. I have a lot of stamps I am getting rid of. If you would like, I could pick you out some cool ones and send them to you. Let me know.
