Pretty Spools!

I've been meaning to Blog these for a week or two now, please excuse my blog tardiness! Aren't we seeing Spools everywhere at the moment!? You'd think it might spur my sewing machine into action but sadly not, yet!

So anyway these cuties (even if I do say so myself!) were created by Jane & myself were inspired by two sources :)
Firstly, the wrapping of paper, lace & ribbon from an article in the Winter Issue of Somerset Life. This publication is packed with homely inspiration & wonderful photography!
Secondly, we saw spools with clips on the Alterations table on the Sizzix stand at this years Trade Show.
Et Voila (apologies, I've been watching Raymond!), a perfect base to show off a tag, ATC or random piece of artwork :)

 Speaking of Random Art, these 2 pieces were created simply by using KaiserCrafts English Rose paper, Cuttlebugs Script Embossing Folder, Victorian Velvet & Crushed Olive Distress Inks, Sizzix Alterations Regal Crest Bigz Die.

The Large Spools were swiped with Antique Linen Distress Stain & the Clips coloured with Alcohol Inks!
