lemon cream

Hello! This week at Crafts 4 Eternity the challenge is to feature some kind of weaving.

Well I promise you that I finished this long before I saw Michele's post, which also features a tutorial (I was just late getting my photos done). However, it looks like we used the same base technique. Go check out Michele's tutorial in the link above to see how to do it.

I initially wasn't going to do anything too fancy. I was just going to do the weaving and leave it at that for a recipe cover. But then I added mod podge to it and then it didn't look right to be left just plain.

Papers: October Afternoon ~ Modern Homemaker

So then I randomly painted on a cake mixer using a Bo Bunny stamp. You might just be able to make it out.

Then I stamped on some mugs and sugar bowls and a bit of texture with some texture paste.

I made the gloves by drawing a template and fiddling with it until I was happy with it and then cutting it out. The same with the heart, as I didn't have a die that would work. The lemon cream recipe bit was left over scraps from the paper I had used for the weaving.

I used Faber-Castell Pitt Pens around the edges of the papers. Then used rub-ons to decorate, apart from the dashed lines around the gloves, which I drew on.

Finally, I added letter stickers for the 'recipes' and mod podged the whole cover again.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
