Textured PASSION

This little book of vintage goods measures 4 1/2" square.  I used so many different scraps from my stash, and I am quite pleased with it. 
front and back cover 


                     A few tuck spots with tags to journal on. 

The fun thing about having a stash at the ready, is sometimes "it" dictates to you what "it" wants to be used for.  And that is pretty much what took place with this little fiber fest.  
 
 A couple spots to journal your secret passion...
 
There is something so special about a fragile piece of antique lace. And this little bit of pink was screaming at me... and when I sewed it to a sliver of an old scrap of linen, a page of vintage pictures appeared.  That is when this book came to be titled...PASSION!

Another journaling spot. 


Thanks for stopping by...
I've really been enjoying using up my stash making these 
little gems.

    1. Hello Friend,
      I just love making these. I only wish I had more free time to devote to the "creative" side of my being. Gotta keep the day job for now, however! Thanks for popping in on me...Aloha!

    1. Oh, I have vowed not to purchase any more supplies until this stash has been depleted...of course, to make room for more! There is a method to my madness! Hope to see you back here soon! Aloha!

  7. Having a 'stash at the ready' is so important for that creative whim. You can see what you have and get to it without going and getting anything. Love your journals. :)

    1. Oh but you should see my "creative chaos" at the moment! It is spread out everywhere. When I am in the creative mode, buttons fly, ribbons get tangled up, glue gets everywhere...time to tidy up abit! Another one on the drying table right now. A special music book for my music teacher daughter!
