I have to tell you, there's nothing quite as motivating as an enthusiastic and responsive audience...and you definitely fit the bill!
Last Friday, the brand new "I Start, You Finish" projects literally flew out of the studio and that totally inspired me to do some more creating this week. I had an amazing amount of fun putting these projects together (you know it's fun when you completely lose track of time :))...today, there are five really cool pieces of memory art that are available from the creatologie studio.
Each piece is unique and one of a kind...and they are designed for you to finish on the inside with your decorative elements, photos and stories. A couple of today's offerings have a lot started from my end...which is perfect if you are really busy and just want to add some photos and journaling.
OK, without further ado, here are the "I Start, You Finish" projects available today...
MY FEATHERED NEST:
For most of us, the nest represents a feeling of security and who we are...it's our home, our own little world, a place where we nurture, create and grow...which makes it such a great theme for memory art.
You are going to love this repurposed hardback book. It's vintage and shabby and both the front and back covers feature a padded muslin lace trimmed panel. There are lots of layers on the front cover...vintage Quaker lace, old doilies, a script fabric die cut, hand created fabric flowers, hand dyed crinkle ribbon, pearls, feathers and bits of vintage lace. The centerpiece is a wonderful metal tin, hand painted by moi in a wonderful robin's egg blue, distressed and aged to look like it's been around for years and years. There's a stamped nest background and a three dimensional hand painted nest with eggs on the tin. The tin is filled with dyed fabrics and a hand made flower...and perched on the opening of the tin is a fabulous cast iron shabby bird...can we just say perfect!
Inside, this book features hand stitched watercolor pages (12 of them lightly washed with walnut ink), a roomy parchment bag, a flap from the back cover and a finished inside back cover. LOVE!
The inside front cover features a beautiful decorative paper...and there's also a wonderful old hand made lace border on one of the pages. All of this shabby, vintage goodness can be yours for just $97, plus shipping (within the US). Simply click on the Buy Now button below to place your order.
