Flourishes June Release Day 2


Welcome to day 2 of Flourishes new release.  Today we are
using the set Ferns and Fiddles.  I love the project I created
with this set.. I took some fabric and stazon ink and
stamped the ferns from this set onto the fabric.  I then
took my copics and carefully colored it in. 


Ferns and Fiddles


After stamping on the fabric I measured my journal cover.  Then I
used Modge Podge and some quilt batting to cover the
journal.  I added some Flourishes trim to the inside
with some wooden beads to tie it shut. 
I sponged around the edges to give it an aged feeling. 


Ferns and Fiddlesbag
I then sewed this fabric bag to put the journal into with a
pretty pen.. I used the same Ferns and Fiddles set for the
leaves and then I stamped the sentiment from the
new Life's Lines set.  I added the same trim and beads
for the drawstring. 

This is a very special gift for my daughter.. She goes back to IL
this weekend to begin working.  I wrote some quotes on the
inside of this little book.  I hope she likes it..


Don't forget that tonight is our Power Hour in the Flourishes
Forum on Splitcoaststampers.  It starts at 9 p.m. CST

Check out what the rest of the team created:
