Eileen Hull Inspiration for Fabric, Lace, Fibres and Yarns



This month the Eileen Hull Teams are sharing inspiration and tips on how to incorporate Fabric, Lace, Yarns and Fibres etc into your projects. I think we all have boxes of scrap pieces that we just can't throw away because they might be small, but they are just beautiful, right!


I've created a Junk Journal using Eileen's Large Journal Die, it's just the perfect size as it's an A4 Bigz Die, so you can cut lots of different substrates. The papers are the Coral Vintage Artistry from 49&Market, and just stunning. I didn;t realise when I chose the paper for the spine that I actually know where that address is........how cool is that. It's in Chester which isn't that far away from where I live.


 I used cotton scrim folded in half, sprayed it with starch and ran it carefully through using the Button Embossing Folder. Then I set it aside to dry naturally. You can just about see the texture in the background. I used more scrim on the spine of the journal for extra strength, and a selection of gorgeous Sari Silks to create a Tassel.I left the holes in the spine as this allowed me to attatch the Tassel and also a Metal Embellishment with ease. 
For a full flip through of the journal you can find the YouTube video HERE

Happy Crafting

Hi Julie, scrim is like a cheese cloth weight of fabric. It's the edge of the fabric when it's woven and is great for dying or adding to felt. Thought I'd give it a try as I had a heap of it :) x
