Book of the Week: The Sleeping Beauty Coptic Stitched Journal
It had about six absolutely stunning vintage prints of classic fairy tales like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, The Snow Queen, Snow White and Red Rose, the Bremen Town Musicians, and The Prince and the Princess.
So I used each illustration to cover the front of an Upcycled Journal. I found matching patterned paper to cover the backs, and used different coloured threads for the stitching. One day, I promise, I'll put up a picture tutorial for how to make one, but for right now, I'm keeping it close.
The first two mentioned have sold, the second two are available, and the last two are in production. So look for them soon!
The best thing about these pictures, though, are that they are dark and mysterious, just like the old-school fairy tales were. No Disney cartoons here! (Not that I don't like Disney.)
