The idea for this project, comes from my adored friend Lilla and she makes the most beautiful projects from fabric. Last week, she posted a book of burlap ( hesian for my english readers) with a bird quotes theme *here* and she also made a video tutorial *here*
I've just finished my version of a burlap book *History of France* Instead of wallpaper, i sewed fabric to the inside book. I've printed vintage pictures to some kind of thermo - transfer paper and ironed them to the inside pages of cotton - fabric. I also stamped on that transfer - paper and ironed on, too.
It's better to explain, when you see the pictures.
Histoire de France
The picture on cover is printed on fabric
The vintage coloured picture is made with thermo - transfer paper ironed to fabric
Left side a printed version - right side stamped on transfer - paper
On top of the right side, i adhered a stamped tag
Right side printed version - left side stamped.
On top of the right side, i stamped pen nips on used teabag *Earl Grey* (:o)
Both sides stamped on thermo - transfer - paper
After ironing, i stamped the quotes on top
Printed version on the left and a handmade bookmark
Thanks Lilla, for this great inspiration (:o)
