It must be the pregnancy hormones - i'm up this morning at around 6am. The weather was perfect for sleeping in - rainy, dark, super comfy under the duvet type of weekend weather. BUT - #2 obviously was raring to go - she was somersaulting, kicking, punching, pushing.... haha. i could just imagine the baby going - GET UP mum, i need some space! So, what better to do on a saturday morning of total quiet than to catch up on my crafting. I've been working late nites these few days, but have been surfing quite a bit at work, so there's lots of ideas floating about in my head, just needed the time to execute them.
Here's what i did:
Step 1 : sew a few layers of patterned cloth below your linen cover
Any pattern will do - this is inspired by some of the architectural lines i've been drawing at work :P
using a sharp pair of scissors, snip off the top layer to reveal the pieces behind! (so cool right, the whole act of revealing is really quite exciting)
embellish, applique, stitch on more stuff on the outside..
The completed album cover - i've just used a simple 40 sleeve 4R Muji plain album as the insert, but i suppose one could do this over any type of journal or book!
*it's so simple to do that i completed this in just under 1 hr - i'm now digging up all my scraps and hoping to try out more of them tonight! :)
O! and i cut G's hair this morning- this is the before shot - with her super long curly hair.... stay tuned to see the After shot!!! :)
