Writing Compendium


I haven't been able to sew on the machine lately so I have found my crafting joy with paper crafts.  I watch you tube videos to teach myself how to make basic things like notebook covers, gift boxes, photo albums and just recently notebook covers.


In true FEE style I always change things up a bit and apply my own style to things.  I have a lovely collection of vintage shabby papers and like my favourite fabrics they have been sitting around way too long so I felt it was time to begin to use them.    A writing compendium to display on my side board seemed the perfect project for these gorgeous papers from Kaisercraft.


I made the cover from cardboard and covered them in white cardstock and then used the printed designer papers to dress it up.  I used Tim Holtz Distress inks to age everything and finished it off with some beautiful lace, an old earring, ribbon and paper flowers.


I found the beautiful gold sparkly pens in Kmart last week and bought a few for gifts.  Isn't it just gorgeous ?


I finished it off with some lovely little silver book corners and all tied up with a pretty bow.



An afternoon very well spent I'd say.  I'm hoping to make a few more for Christmas gifts in the next few days.

Bye for now.

Hugs,


Fee xx

I love your paper crafting Fee and your writing compendium is so lovely. I have that exact paper in my stash and I really do love the way you have used it.
Thank you for sharing your project at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather this week.
Hugs to you xx
