ColorBox blends with Eileen Hull

hello everyone!

oh it seems forever since i have written up a blog post; i guess it’s been a while hasn’t it.

today though i am here to share with a cute and fast(ish) project i created in the spirit of ‘love’

i started out by cutting the suitcase (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/657124/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-bag-suitcase)from the Sizzix leather paper sheets to which i had added a few colors of ColorBox.

now seeing as I am fairly new to them I started out with a heavier touch then needed. i am loving all the colours but chose to use nutmeg, sunshine, melon and my newest fav, stop!

so how do I proceed.. well I added a bit of water and let my colours mix and mingle and then set it aside to dry.

now I liked where this was going but just knew it needed a bit of texture so i inked the inside of the Daisy Wreath (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661423/sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folder-daisy-wreath) embossing folder using the nutmeg color blend

i was sure to ink both sides prior to placing my dried paper leather sheet inside and running it through my vagabond

now my suitcase needed a bit of stitching

and finally it needed some accents and a little book was created with the left over bits of paint and paper leather!

thanks for stopping by today to see what  a great combination Eileen Hulls dies by Sizzix, her paints by ColorBox and the ‘let me see what I can do next with this’ paper leather by Sizzix…..

til next time..

happy creating

Diana
