today i am here to share with you another one of my projects for this release… this one i used felt as well. i am absolutely loving creating with it.. i need to source myself some more!
i hand stitched these stitchy flowers and leaf (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661903/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-13pk-stitchy-flowers-leaf)to the front to the art journal (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661906/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-journal) using some antique thread. i also added a bit of cheese cloth to the centre button
on the front of the journal, after die cutting the ‘you are my sunshine’ onto a piece of scrap paper i decided i wanted it outlined on my journal and then decided that i liked the idea of stitching….. it is funny how things change when we are creating isn’t it!! what we think we want takes all kinds of turns until it is finished. that is the part of the process i like! when it came time to bind my journal i decided to try using some wire and my twist and style tool!! this makes creating wire bits so easy!!!! i absolutely love these flowers die-cut from felt!!! the ink in the background gives my stitching the depth i loved!
to hid the stitching i die cut another journal cover, covered it with some creative tape and then pressed my felt cover to the front!
and then all that was left to do was to add some papers inside and then that quick and easy i have a journal that will possible hold positive quotes i come across through out my day, month year….
