Create our tomorrows

Hello everyone & welcome,
Today I have a very feminine vintage style junk journal that I would like to share with you.
I have created my journal using these beautiful feminine images from the Vintage Journal Cards- mixed series which are available from Meg's Garden online store.


My inspiration for my cover came from the colours plus the fine detail provided by this gorgeous image. I have embellished the cover with lots of lace, flowers, a metal charm, word images, corrugated cardboard, seed beads and pearls.

Inside the journal each page is a little bit different. I have created lots of pockets & tucks throughout.
There are places for writing.
I have added lots of tags.
Places for photos.
Fussy cut images are scatter throughout.
Lots of pretty laces embellish my pages.
Inking, distressing and torn pages.



There is even a place to add your very own photo.
I have also decorated the back cover with some lace, a paper doily, ribbon, pearls & images from Meg's Garden. The journal cover and pages are held together with seam binding. Lace is used to tie the journal together as a closure. I am very pleased how this feminine journal has turned out. Stop by Meg's Garden online store for products used to create this project.

Until next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Lets up cycle

Hello everyone & welcome,
I would like to share with you a mixed media project that I have created for this month's May challenge over at The Happy Craft challenge blog.
I have up cycled a large tin to create a pretty rubbish bin to sit on my craft desk. I have used a variety of products. First I mixed some Kaisercolour paint: Dusty Pink and gesso together to create a soft pink shade which was then painted onto the outside of my tin. When this was completely dry I added my gorgeous paper napkin of a rose with some Mod Podge. I then added some textured paste pieces. I have glued lace to the top both inside and out of my tin which created a neater look to the edges. I shaped some wire to create leaves and then added an organza flower. Clusters of seed beads are scattered here and there.
 I added some colour using different Inka Golds and to add a slight vintage touch some Prima metallique wax and here is a close up my finished project.
Until next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful day & happy creating.

Flowers

Hello everyone & welcome,
I would like to share with you today my layout that I have created for this month's May challenge over at ARTastic challenge blog.

I have kept my layout simple as I wanted the main focus to be on my photo of these beautiful Ranunculus flowers. This photo was taken last year on our trip to the carnival of flowers in Toowoomba.
Until next time.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a lovely day & happy creating.

Smile for the camera

Hello everyone & welcome,
I would like to share with you my layout that I have created for this month's May challenge over at Scrap the girls - "April Showers bring May flowers". This month's sketch to follow is designed by Sue Plumb.

I have used a variety of patterned papers including Maja Design: Sofiero collection, Pion Design: Dusty Rose cardstock, Craft & You: Flower Vibes. I have also added embellishments of a laser cut doily, lace, a chipboard shape, & texture paste.
Lots of fussy cutting of flowers and leaves. I have also inked the edges with Tim Holtz's distress ink: Tea dye.

Until next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful day & happy creating.
