Get out the bagpipes!

I've created a sort of Scottish wreath for the class on Saturday - you can create your own tartan and then add on thistles, bluebells and the like!

Thanks for looking!

....and on the inside...

Here's the inside of my Fauxdori:

The inside front cover just uses some crumpled copy paper to cover up the fabric edges. Had to paint it a bright colour of course!
The first insert is for notes or whatever:

I've decorated them roughly with Carabelle Studio stamps and some very old Prima ones.

Thanks for looking!

... Fauxdori continuing...

My second insert showcases some kitchen roll paper that was used in a class and I couldn't bear to throw it away!

I then made a pocket thing to put stuff in:

Here's the back:

The insert itself is made up of scrap paper that I've been leaning on and painted off on. I included it just to show that your inserts can be made of anything!

The class is next Wednesday if you're interested.

Thanks for looking!

This is my first attempt at a Fauxdori journal - in fact I'd never heard of them before! - but I'm seriously hooked. It's like a never ending journal with removable inserts.
This one I made for a class at The Craft Barn:

The whole thing closes very neatly with the elastic loop. Here's the whole cover, front and back:

This is actually worked on calico, stretched over thick acetate.
If you fancy coming and making your own, then follow the link above.

Thanks for looking!

Kay Carley and a bit of rust!

Rust is not something you'd immediately think of with Kay, but that's what I'm doing over on the PaperArtsy blog today!

Head on over to see what I made!

Thanks for looking!
