batik keyholes

the blue ovals on this fabric remind me of keyhole locks, so i thought it would be perfect for a journal cover...surely all of the thoughts, goals and dreams inside will be kept secure.  this fabric actually comes from my growing collection of batiks.  i really love the artistic imperfection and spontaneity that you find with batiks, and this blue and green color combination has long been a favorite of mine.  and with all of that, today i'm branching out a bit...i think it's time to mix it up a bit and learn some new techniques.  more on that tomorrow! (this book was constructed using the same techniques that can be found here)
