The Journal Project/Pieces of the Week.

Greetings All,
The Journal Project was inspired by this lovely journal (left/below) that was created by fiber artist Lauren Austin whom I met at the Underground Freedom Center at the opening "And Still We Rise".  I love Lauren's work so much I decided to create a series of my own.  Thank you Lauren for inspiring me to do so. 
Behold my Black Bird Journal series and my pieces of the week..
