Not feeling very crafty or chipper.
Room still a wreck and finding it difficult to reorganize, yet again. 😦 Maybe I will just let it be for a bit; see if inspiration strikes me..or lightening.
Any-who I was visiting my favorite Swedish Blogger IHanna, and cannot help but be inspired! She is always in the creative zone and has a
wonderful shabby-chic affinity for all things creative, from art to collage. I remembered a piece of pink floral material that I had and decided to
recreate some of the £1.00 journals ‘I had purchased last year (aka as the “RACH” journal) These were A4 which was too big to fill, especially doodling;
I used waxed light green binding thread, and the inside is lined with denimI have a pocket rescued from a pair of jeans that will be mounted on the inside.
Lastly, I have a thing for pearls. When I find strands at the flea market or something, I save them hoping for that proverbial “one day” to use them. Last night, I was inspired to un thread them.
I put them into some little jars I had been saving, but when they looked really..un-glamorous, I decided to spiff up the lids. No flowers, ribbons or the likes, just a better looking top than the ones that
were visible. The paper is from Crafty Individuals pad of 6×6 called Background Papers, Book 1. I used my secret mixture of medium (ok, it is really all of the bottoms of the containers I did not want to toss out!) 🙂My trusty compass to encircle the paper (place point of compass in the center of the lid, extend and mark circle 1/2 inch outside the rim, cut fringe every 1/4 inch apply glue and fold over lids, VOILA! 😉
