Eileen Hull Journal ....

Hello friends

Hope you are all good...
Brrr its dropped so cold here in the UK,
I've moved indoors from the shed....
as much as I love to create in my shed its just way too cold!

Ive really tried not to buy the Eileen Hull journal die, not because I didn't like it just because I wasn't sure I would use it, but after seeing lots of inspiration from my arty friends I decided I needed it, I wasn't disappointed, such a fun die!

I cut out out the die using greyboard and coated it in gesso and crackle paint
I then distressed it using distress paint, texture paste and lots of stitching 
I then added a frame (prima),  made layers using some re-cycled parcel paper, added some remnant rub-ons (Tim Holtz) and some vintage lace 
To finish I added some paper flowers to the frame.
This die has loads of here for more inspiration
As always feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and everyone!

Hope you have a great week!
