Hey everyone! How are things?
In good old Heidelberg it’s windy, raining, but the sun is shining all the same.
I had promised you to post the photos of my apple pincushions way back in February, but so far I can’t for the life of me find the pictures I took… If I find them, I’ll of course share them with you. So for now, I’m going to show you an envelope album I made for my friend Julian, who is a pilot. It came in handy that my most recent delivery of lots and lots of paper crafting goodness contained two stamp sets that lent themselves to this project.
I have used this “Envelope Book” idea from Heather Nichols several times over the past years and I’ve always been very pleased with the outcome.
This time I stuck to the colour combo Rustic Cream/ Dark Shadow/ Harvest Gold/Aqua.
The stamps are PTI, Studio Calico and Tim Holtz.
The backside was covered in Rustic Cream CS, then stamped in Palette Noir and American Crafts Aqua Chalk Ink. To add some interest, I sprinkled Mister Huey’s (lunchtray) onto the cardstock.
Whaddya think? It basically took me forever to finish this, must’ve been the “thesis syndrome” holding me back. That’s also the one responsible for my lack of pincushion photos, I guess.
And we made a field trip to Strasbourg, where we got to interpret the Parliamentary Assembly’s Session for three days (silent booth, of course ;))
That stewardess (sorry: uniformed crew member ;D) in the middle is yours truly 😉
We had so much fun there 🙂
Anyway, gotta go and help my best friend packing, for tomorrow she’ll move to Berlin
*The title stems from this great song (that I included in my thesis): Kodachrome by Paul Simon.
