"What keeps life fascinating is the constant creativity of the soul."
This has been a most fascinating week!
Ideas have been hitting my brain in the wee hours of the morning when I probably should be sleeping...and I've been getting up all energized and ready to create something new and exciting.
The result? FOUR brand new "I Start, You Finish" projects...and an updated Heirloom workshop sample, too!
If you're new to the site, you may not know what "I Start, You Finish" projects are all about. Basically, they're albums that are hand made...sometimes with fabric, others with paper...or as one of the projects in this offering...with a spool. I then decorate the cover...detail it to the max...and sometimes add some interior fringes, ruffles or trims. And you...YOU get to finish the interiors with papers, fabrics, ribbons and all sorts of other elements from your personal stashes.
These projects are unique, one of a kind and original. Many times, there are vintage or antique pieces used on the cover...and there was only one in my collection...pretty cool, right?
What a great way to jump start your creativity!
I know that many of you are really busy...and having the time to think up a project, a theme, and a color scheme just isn't in the works. With "I Start, You Finish" projects, that's taken care of for you. Plus, it's a fabulous way to hunt and gather...whether from your personal collections, vintage and antique stores, or your local scrapping or craft stores.
Here's what has come out of the creatologie studio this week!
A VINTAGE STORY:
If you love all things vintage, this is the album for you!
A Vintage Story is a hand made fabric album (approx 8 x 10 1/2") with padded covers and 14 interior pages...perfect to inspire your creative muse. On the cover, you will find luscious layers of vintage goodness. A ruffled doily folded from the front to the back of the cover...a vintage and beautifully aged pearl chain sewn to the doily, mother of pearl buttons, Japanese glass pearl drops, satin roses and even an antique frozen Charlotte doll...unglazed bisque with all of its fabulous imperfections.
The little doll head and torso are nestled in a beautiful hand made and hand painted flower. She looks pretty comfortable in there, doesn't she?
If you're looking for a Mother's Day gift...or maybe a gift for someone who adores the vintage look...or maybe a fabulous addition to your own creative collection, this unique and original album is perfect for you. This album comes with a small packet of coordinating fabrics and trims.
"A Vintage Story" can be yours for just $97, plus shipping (within the US)...sales tax included in shipping for AZ residents.
