A Journal Cover

I have been working on my journal cover
and have finally finished it.
I think it turned out quite pretty

Here´s some details from to front

and the back

I have been working on some tiny burlap bags too
using the same tecnic...
which is
'no plan at all, just use what´s on the table' tecnic..

Here´s one with the word Joy:
Lace, old book page, silk and vintage button

The word 'wish'
embroidered, a tiny bit of lace, more silk
ribbon and a mother of pearl vintage button

Thought they would be great for gifts
so I added a tiny tag/card inside the bag to match

These will go in my shop later.
More to come...


Remember the little bear in the making from
last post?

He´s here:

Meet Andy
A sweet little handful

Wishing you all
a wonderful day sweet friends

Tina ♥♥♥

Ohhh, Andy is so tiny and cute, dear Tina! What a sweet little bear.
I love your "no plan at all-technique". You've created such beautiful things with this method, so it works out great :-).
Have a lovely day!
Hugs to you,

Leanne said...

Andy is so sweet!

On my to-do list is to create a little bag I can easily carry around when I'm wearing a skirt with no pockets (which is where my keys/phone usually go). I have to figure out how I want to carry it without it getting in the way... so I love what you've done with your little bags!
