I am a huge fan of Jenni Bowlin products, I still have a collection of the label stickers she made when she was working with Li'l Davis Designs and I took her class at Big Picture Scrapbooking last summer. Mixing the old with the new is something I am very found of, and Jenni's class instruction made opened my eyes even more to the possibilities of mixing and using items in new ways.
I have been redecorating my office and wanted a mini display of images for the top of a shelf, and I just happened to have some old wooden spools laying on my table next to lollipop sticks, and the next thing I knew I was making a delicate photo vignette with the sticks inserted into the spools.
I covered the sticks in book paper using mod podge and adhered the photos and flowers onto the backs of the sticks. Easy to do, and quick. Have fun and stop by my blog and say hello sometime, oh and I am working with Ella Publishing and we have a free eBook this month, download it and let me know what you liked and what you didn't like. (Don't you think Jenni should do an eBook?)
Wendy is also graciously sponsoring two ebook giveaways: UR2Cre8ive and Stretch Your Sketches! Leave a comment on this post and we will randomly draw two winners this Friday afternoon!
Baker's twine is my new obsession, I purchase mine on etsy, my favorite sources are
Also a source for spools is your local thrift store or these etsy shops
Thanks for the inspiration Wendy! (and I like that ebook idea)!
