Daydream Journals by Tilly Rose is jam packed with inspiration for those looking to create mixed media journals. Tilly shares the techniques and inspirations behind her beautiful journals, teaching you how to use fabric, paper, embroidery and natural products like flowers, leaves, berries and twigs to create unique masterpieces.
This book is not so much a step by step instruction manual for creating exact replicas of her journals. Rather it is one that gives you the starting point for creating your own unique journals. She shares her sources of inspiration, as well as well as giving advice on finding your own.
Some of the many techniques covered in the book include Indian block printing, flower tapping, solar dying, creating natural dyes, adding embellishments, embroidery stitches, applique and crazy patchwork.
The first half of the book is focused on inspiration and techniques, the second half is project based. The projects are intended more as a starting point, showing you the basic steps for creating the items featured but encouraging you to decide upon the finer details yourself. So that your finished project will be personal and unique.
There are a few different journal projects plus a button jar project and a small embroidered bag. See the collage below for some of the projects from the book.
This gorgeous book is sure to have you bursting with inspiration and ready to stitch your own daydream journal in no time!
