Study Hall: January patchwork
I know you are so excited as I am about the February Main Kit which is called Atacama. This kit is amazing and contains lots of gorgeous elements.
The good news is my kit is on the way and I hopefully it arrives soon.
So today I am sharing with you my January album ’s cover featuring the Cocoa Vanilla Studio-Bohemian Dream collection from January 2018 Main Kit.
I have always wanted to try the patchwork technique with paper but I have never done. I would have liked to use the cutter machine more often in 2017, but I didn’t do it. I decided to change in 2018. So for today’s project I created a patchwork background. I used Beautiful Mess paper by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, I cut out some 1x1,5 inch pieces and glued them onto the white cardstock. I also added zigzag machine stitching. The result is just amazing.
2018 year’s color is lilac and this is the reason why I chose this cute lilac bird for the cover decoration. I also used my cutting machine and I edited the word ‘January’ with the Silhouette Cameo program. I cut it out from the same paper which I used for the cover and I also used white cardstock at the back. Some splashes were the finishing touches to complete the cover.
For the back side of my January album I used the same patchwork technique.
The interesting part of the back cover is the “hey” die cut word from the Vicki Boutin- All the good Things pack. I used Altenew Golden Peach embossing powder from my stash and added a new look for it. I absolutely love the result. I used this word and created a little message for myself around it.
I hope you are inspired to create some cute album covers. Thanks for joining me today.
