Art Journal Every Day

Hi everyone!
Welcome to my first tutorial and prompt for Art Journal Every Day. This is so exciting!
My tutorial is about hand sewing on your art journal page.
Yes I know that it is kind of scary, we work so hard on our pages and then I suggest you go stick a needle on it... well you are going to love it.
Sewing adds texture and dimension to a page. I absolutely love touching my work and finding that something special that grabs my attention.
The prompt is Hope... such a small word and so much meaning.
Here is my page:
 Some details:



Image: Fringe 1 from Smeared Ink

Thanks!
