Autumn with Eileen Hull's Design Team


It's that time of year when everyone seems to be suffering with coughs and colds. I thought it would be great to have something pretty to keep my tissue packets hidden in, rather than them just sitting on the counter top. Eileen sent me a Wrapped Journal earlier this year that was die cut from felt, which was just perfect for the base of my tissue packet holder. I'd seen a pouch that Eileen had made to keep business cards in for CHA in January, so that inspired me.


 I can fit two packets of handy size tissues neatly inside.


 I think I need lots more practice with my blanket stitch, it's be a long time since I did any sewing.


 I also love to wet felt, and the flower were made from wool tops in cream and a gorgeous apricot colour. I made four circular pieces, all graduating in size and added a few angelina fibres in bronze, before felting them by hand. I needle felted the layers together, and added some brown wool top to the centre of the flower, before needle felting the flower onto the front of the journal. Once it was secure I then stitched around the edge to create seams, and a little decoration.

Samples from Imagination Crafts One Day Special Shows






I suddenly realised that I hadn't shared any photo's of the samples I made for Imagination Crafts One Day Special last week, how rude is that!. Really love the new stencils that were launched, they are fabulous images for mixed media projects.

Having Fun with Eileen Hull's Collection of Colorbox Blends


O boy have I been having fun with these Colorbox Blends. I love the colours in Eileen's collections, they are so fresh and bright. The inks are really easy to hold due to the great design, and they hold so much ink, these will last a long, long time!

I chose just four colours to use on the gorgeous flowers and leaves from the new Book Club 2 Journaling Cards Flowers and Leaves, and Hearts Journaling Cards. I love all the names Eileen chose for the colours, they are such fun. Melon, Sunshine, Leaf and Frog.

I'll upload my project video, just as soon as I can find out where it's hiding on my laptop :O
