Textile Mini Album Cover

This mini album is going to be a work in progress piece for quite some time. Each inside page will be it’s own unique piece of art. I don’t have a plan or even one idea on how to com­plete each page, I’m just going to pick it up and stitch off and on and see how it comes togeth­er. Some­times it’s fun to cre­ate with­out ever hav­ing a plan.

The album I’m using is a Maya Road Linen 4″ x 6″ Art Jour­nal­ing Album that I accent­ed with a Maya Road Linen Heart piece and a die cut doily from nat­ur­al muslin using the Eileen Hull Sizzix Doily, Lace Medal­lion die.

Before attach­ing the linen heart and nat­ur­al muslin doily I first attached seam bind­ing so I can keep the album closed with a sim­ple bow and vin­tage lace using fab­ric adhe­sive. The above pho­to is the back of the mini album. I’ve been sav­ing this vin­tage lace for a long time for just the right project. I think it is gor­geous.

The nat­ur­al muslin doily is accent­ed with sim­ple back stitch­ing and rice stitch­ing. I also attached a few small cham­pagne col­ored beads just to add a bit of col­or to the doily. The linen heart is accent­ed with a back stitch and clear beads that I ran­dom­ly attached all along the inside edge of the heart . Then I attached vin­tage glass but­tons inside the heart as I like how the glass but­tons give the cov­er a lit­tle sparkle. I then added vin­tage shell but­tons around the heart and doily for addi­tion­al col­or and tex­ture.

As I add to the album I’ll make sure to show you how it’s com­ing togeth­er.  Now I’m off to Den­ver, CO to see Ron­da Palaz­zari for a few days then head up to Rocky Moun­tain Mem­o­ries to teach some class­es. It’s going to be an awe­some few days.
