I love working on a small scale.Recently a customer asked me to make one of my mini scrapbook boxes for her daughter.I used to make these in a larger scale,but for me..the smaller the better.After I finished the first one,I was inspired to create another one.This one is called "Togetherness" and it measures 2 1/4" x 3 3/4".The photos need to be a teeny-weeny 1 1/4" x 1 1/4"
I also finished a little block.It measures approx.3" high.On the sides it reads.."Alone we can do so little,together we can do so much-Hellen Keller
I also recently had the oppertunity to join in on the most exciting challenge..Brenda from http://wickedwoolgathering.blogspot.com/ challenged us to create something using her hand made wool..How exciting..and yesterday I recieved it in the mail,and I couldnt believe my eyes.. the most beautiful rainbow of colored wool...what was I to do..Well I have to be truthful here...I couldnt keep my hands off of it..its texture is simply devine and just had to create something RIGHT AWAY!!
I first made a book of treasures.I happen to collect things..treasured things like baby teeth,little drawings,shells,rocks,spools,buttons..whatever..my treasures..and so my book "Essential Stuff" was made with Brenda's gray and white wool,felt and other doo-dads.
..and I also created a small wool pendant..it started off as an ACEO Card,but I quickly decided to cut it down..smaller the better..and the blue wool looked like a beautiful sky and green had to be the grass and I stitched some mountains and added beads..what fun!Thanks Brenda!!
I still have some left...and my mind is already racing with ideas..
I think I found a new treasure..sweet Brenda Wool...What kind of treasures do you collect?
