Journal Embellishments


I'm blogging from a very sunny and warm England today. So lovely : )
Shame I am sat behind a desk working all day. Nevermind, it's cheerful looking outside anyway.

Whilst I was away lasy week, a canvas of mine was shown on the Fancy Pants Blog.
Some of us were asked to design with the new Journal Emellishments.
Oh decisions, decisions. They are all so lush.

I chose the 'it's the little things' collection, my new favourite from Fancy Pants.
And as I love this collection so so much, I decided I want a canvas to hang so I can admire the pretty things all the time.

I handstitched around each journal tag to add testure and to draw in the eye a little more.

I've also used lots of other things from this collection...papers, brads, and some other bits.
You can read the full blog post over at Fancy Pants here and see what the other designers made too.

Right, back to work for me.
I must apologise first though for my lack of blog hopping right now. I feel so behind. With going away last week and still having the kids home from school this week and being busy with work, I'm struggling with everything else right now.
I will hopefully catch up soon as I miss visiting everyones lovely blogs and having a good ol' nose : )
See you soon xxx
