Hello to All!
Years ago, I became enamored of the color blush and actually created an entire board on Pinterest that I devoted to it. Any guesses what I named the board? Yep, you guessed it..."At First Blush".
When I was trying to decide what to create for my next creatologie project, I scanned through my Pinboards and decided that I needed to do an album/journal featuring shades of blush. With that being said, please allow me to introduce, "At First Blush"!
I decided that this book needed to be pretty, that it didn't need a theme other than color, and that it would be adaptable for all kinds of occasions or could stand on its own as an art journal.
The end result is a hardback book with a hand-created accordion inside, beautiful vignettes on each page in various shades of blush, lots of pockets for photos and stories, and empty pages on the backside of the accordion to give you additional space for photos and journaling.
Want to see more?
You are going to love the soft and beautiful shades of blush accented with sage green and a soft yellow, the layers and textures, and the organic look and feel of the pages.
Included in your kit are flower petals created from hand-dyed (using a natural dye) tissue linen...and along with the pre-dyed fabric, for those who want to experiment, there will also be instructions on how I created the dye bath. You will also learn how to create a couple of different fabric flowers that use the same basic die...very practical and fun. I know that you will love the variety and textures of the different trims and ribbons included in this project.
Can you see this beautiful journal being used as a book to honor a grandmother, mother, daughter(s), or granddaughter(s)? Or maybe a wedding or engagement album? Or just a book about you and your friendships? Or, maybe just a personal journal about life in general?
When I first posted a sneak peek of the project on Facebook, a comment made by one of my FB friends really summed it up well. She said, "That's so tranquil and beautiful. Has me wanting to watch a sunrise." Oh my word, isn't that the truth...truly the colors in a sunrise! And, even more, there's the joy and beauty of a new day and fresh hope that comes with it. That's the tone of this book...hope, beauty, joy, and being refreshed.
As with previous creatologie kits, "At First Blush" is a limited edition kit and once the kits are sold out, there will be no more. They are available for pre-order right now and kits will begin shipping out on August 26th.
The kits, complete with digital step-by-step instructions, are available for pre-order for just $129, plus shipping (within the US, please...sales tax for AZ residents included in shipping).

As always, thanks for reading, for your orders, and for your referrals to friends and family. I am so looking forward to sharing this beautiful project with you.
From my studio to yours,
