Handbound Leather Journal for Brew lovers

Hello Friends,

Brewery and Distilling is an interesting study.

I know many people who study and show interest in this craft. Brewery career is a much sought after field. For someone interested in this, needs a place to jot down notes and ideas and information on this subject. I have made a hand bound leather journal with 5 small field notebooks bound together into one single journal. I love leather and its texture. Made the journal cover using 100% pure Leather.

Simply fell in love with this journal . Makes me want to learn this Art of Brewery too now !!

The Journal

Field notebook 1

Field notebook 2

Field notebook 3

Field notebook 4

Field notebook 5

The texture and the crackle on the notebooks add a vintage feel

Each field notebooks were distressed with Walnut stain Distress ink . Applied texture paste through stencil at the corners and Crackled it with Distress crackle paste to give a Vintage feel .

Its all about Aging !

Altered Trinket box

Hello Friends,

Empty Duct tape rolls lying around my craft place caught my attention. I converted it into a lovely box -  a trinket box . The Pink colour and the blooms , I fell in love with this ..

Placed two duct tapes, one over the other , to give appropriate height. Cut out 2 circles from Chipboard, one for the top and one for the bottom . Top lid is unattached. I had plans to attach , but I forgot and I decorated the entire box with pattern paper .

A very simple way to transform an empty duct roll to something useful.

Here are some pictures of it .

Happy Crafting ,

Art of Quilling on Bottle

Hello friends ,

Recycling and making new and interesting upcycled products is one of the few things I love to create.

2 cute bottles caught my fancy and I Quilled after a very long time ..

Cleaned the bottles thoroughly and air dried them to remove any moisture if any.

Attached twine around both the bottles , painted the bottles white .

Added a color to match my quilled flower by applying blue hue on one of the bottle and a ting of green in the other ..

Flowers were glued down using silicon glue.

Happy Crafting ..

Mixed Media on My Journal Cover ..

Hello friends ,

A Journal is a window to your soul .. Its a place where I write down my Reflections on any matter that I feel at that moment ..

I couldn't let it sit idle around  and hence I decided to decorate the Journal cover .
Mixed Media is like a learning curve , the more you do the more you learn the Do's and Dont's .

The procedure :
Covered the book with Pattern paper from Itsy Bitsy .
Spine I covered it using pretty black lace ..
Applied texture paste through stencil and before it dried up, poured Embossing Powder over it . Shake off the extra powder . Heat set it .
A few stamping using Prima background stamps.
Arranged the Embellishments around and  the cover is ready ..

Happy Crafting !!
