binderie in bloom

binderie in bloom

7 Gypsies has been a tremendous source of inspiration and amazing products since the very beginning… and they continue to amaze and delight! Just a week or 2 ago, Deb contacted me and asked me if I wanted a “Binderie”… of course I only saw one in real life at preview day, and I was immediately creating class projects in my mind that would use this cool toy! Well, there was a catch: I had to decorate it.. make it my own! I agreed mostly not thinking about how I would decorate it, but more because I wanted one!  (smile)… it arrived and I had NO CLUE what I’d do to it… as I was cleaning up my studio I found  this gorgeous painting that I had in a box of ‘china ephemera’. Anyway, I wondered if I could make this work. It’s painted on this really fragile rice paper, but it’s gorgeous. I wound up decoupageing  it onto the Binderie! I LOVE how it turned out!!

    Wow heidi, that is amazing! If at any point you decide you want to decorate another one, you can send it to me. Plum blossoms are my favorite!

    That is really beautiful.
    I’ve been following your work for quite a few years now, and I have to say that you’re well of creativity and inspiration just doesn’t run dry… 🙂 Thank you for sharing your discoveries and really — I don’t think you realize this — but you actually share enthusiasm. Six years ago, I bought Designing with Notions on impulse, and I nearly fell over with what was inside. I felt the same way when I scrolled down over the Binderie. You know what? I don’t even know what that is…but it is so beautiful, that it motivates me to re-open the Paper Arts Door :-). Thank you for that. Thank you for all of it — and for sharing here.

    Happy Summer.

    The paper is super gorgeous. I will be in China next month and I cannot wait to replicate my own blinging binderie. Very nice sparkling touch on the flowers.
    Thank you soo much for sharing and have fun at Range U.

    You can really tell that you put the “Heidi touch” to this Binderie! You are just amazing. Loved you tales of China, but glad you are back home. I have several ideas for decorating a Binderie with vinyl. Can’t you just see it?
