Fibre Art Journal

As you can see I have been busily embroidering stitch samplers for inclusion in my fibre art journal. I have been a little, well a lot, uninspired by the detatched chain stitch, but now I have found my silk ribbons I think the addition of some of these may improve things. The addition of a few beads will jazz the samples up quite a bit too, but just love the texture of piling the stitches on top of each other and the way the negative space interacts with the embroidery.

What is the purpose of your fiber art journal? Curious about this. It doesn't seem like a stitch dictionary.

I have a fatal flaw, I can't do things straight and neat, so usually do contemporary embroidery. This journal (ideas taken from Beaney and Littlejohn book) is a reminder of how cross stitch, feather stitch, detatched chain, cretan stitch, herringbone can look when piled on top of each other.
