Wrapped Journal featuring Eileen Hull Designs and Emerald Creek Crafts

Hi everyone. I hope you've all had a peaceful Christmas and have had chance to think back through everything that 2018 has delivered as we reach its conclusion.

Over on Eileen Hull's website her Inspiration Team have been sharing some of their favourite projects from 2018. As part of this I began to look back through the pieces I'd made this year and realised that my favourite has not made it to my blog yet! It's a mixed media Wrapped Journal that features lots of Eileen's die designs and incorporates a number of embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.


As you'll see from the following video flip through I added lots of fabric, lace, papers and stitching to the Journal cover and pages, sticking to neutral tones throughout.


The Eileen Hull Designs dies used in this Journal include;
Wrapped Journal
Bookmark, Tag & Pocket
Bookplate, Hinges & Label
Floral Arch & Words
Journaling Words
Journaling Cards, Hearts
Journaling Cards, Flowers & Leaves
Birds & Butterflies
Word Stitchlits
Stitchy Flowers & Leaf

To enhance the die cut shapes and add beautiful texture to the journal I used a number of Emerald Creek Craft Supplies embossing powders.


Embossing powders from their Allure range used include; Burnt Copper Leaves, Hammered Metal, Charred Gold, Oil Rubbed Bronze and Fractured Ice, which can be found on their website HERE.


I found that by adding a layer of Glossy Accents to glue the unheated powder in place I could leave it in it's raw form so that the wonderful mix of granules and colours could shine through. This was also a great way to semi heat set the powders too. To keep the loose powders in place when fully heat embossing Ranger's Emboss It Dabber is also really good as it delivers enough sticky ink to hold the larger granules as well as the smaller ones.


I hope you've enjoyed seeing inside this Wrapped Journal in more detail. As 2019 beckons the team are now working on creating new projects to inspire you using Eileen's fabulous new upcoming dies. She will be sharing more about these in the coming weeks so stay tuned to her Facebook Page for that.

For now all that remains is for me to wish you all a creative, positive and enjoyable 2019.
