From Fabric to Paper Cardholder

https://arnoldgrummerpapermaking.blogspot.com/2018/08/from-fabric-to-paper-card-holder.html   Paper Card Holder Today on the Arnold Grummer Papermaking blog are my directions for making a card holder to coordinate with a bag I created for Gwen Lafleur’s Artist Tribe. After adding leftover fabric and thread into the hand made paper, it was turned into a business card holder so I’d be ready …

Stenciled Boho Clutch

Stenciling on fabric!  If you have been following my Instagram feed you will know about the piece of fabric that my sister and I have been passing back and forth between us for decades. This fabric was bought at a dollar a yard shop when I was in college. Back then, if it was cotton …

Boho Boquet Art Journal Page

I love Gwen’s new stencils. I love her old stencils. I love the fact that she’ll probably have more stencils in the future. (I don’t have any inside information, but I can’t imagine a world in which this is not the case.) Not only do I love her stencils, but I love printing them on …

Traditional vs. Bohemian Reversible Pincushion

When Gwen came out with her new line of stencils I immediately fell in love with the Boho Circle Collection. I chose the Boho Star Circle Stencil. I immediately thought of making a pincushion. The pattern lent itself to the project and I discovered I needed a new pincushion. As they say, “necessity is the mother of …

Slow Stitched Boho Bracelet

  It all started with this: A box of sari scraps from Gwen Lafleur. So beautiful. I have hoarded them for a while now, playing with them, mix and matching them. So beautiful that I was loath to cut them up and use them. I have long been wanting to make a cuff from them. …

Most of the clothes I own are devoid of pockets. This means that juggling a cell phone is an adventure. Finally, there seemed to be no other choice but than to make an over the shoulder bag to cart it about wherever life might lead. Well, if you are going to make a bag, why not …

Longing – An Art Journal Page

This journal spread was an expression of longing. “What are you longing for?” you might ask. What do we all long for? Longing for things that are past or improbable or somehow out of reach. The feeling is far from unique. The illustration I chose does not have to be interpreted as longing, but it …

Bohemian Flower Pot

Every spring I get excited about growing things. Fresh leaves. Plants at the grocery store, home repair store, roadside stands and sell everything discount shops. Every year I get the bug. Buy some plants. Well, that’s about it. So I am the least likely person you will ever ask to housesit your plants. Or manage your …

Friendship Book

This friendship book is something that I have needed for a long time but didn’t know it. It will be a place that will keep the many treasured tags, ATCs, notes, index cards, words of encouragement collected from, you guessed it, friends. Like an autograph book for the internet age. This project has come together by …
