A while back my friend Jodie gave me this wooden spool.
She thought it might be something I could use in photo shoots.
But after seeing this page in A Touch of Farmhouse Charm, a new book by Liz Fourez …
I decided to doctor it up a bit and add a few fun details. Liz made spools from dowel rods and wood discs and used a rubber stamp to dress them up. I borrowed her ideas but gave them my own spin.
First I wound some blue and white twine around my spool.
And then I added a few Tim Holtz rub-on’s to the top.
And I think Jodie was right, this will be fun to use as a prop in future photos.
There were quite a few projects in Liz’s book that I want to try, it really is jam packed with great ideas.
By the way, that is the stack of books that I got for both my birthday and Christmas. Lots of great eye candy. I’m still working my way through the pile, but maybe I share some book reviews down the road, what do you think? Do you see any books you’d like to know more about?
