So this is officially my second ever month of blogging, so thought I would do a post today by doing something I saw last week - WOYWW. So many great crafters showing their work-in-progress so thought I'd join to cheer myself up with all of the bad things happening over here in the UK. So here's what's on my desk:
They are journals made from a whole bunch of found paper scraps, the basis is patterned papers and vintage ephemera, then for decoration I have added vintage collectable cards, buttons, games pieces, advertisements, stamps, as well as the usual gems etc.
The larger of the two I have made from scrap office file folders and is obviously further along to completion than the other, which is a tri-fold book. I have now made a few of these found paper journals for my shop and I have to say I love the 'scrappy' kind of a look they have when I'm finished. I think when these couple are done I may make a little video, as I've been slack with my YouTube uploads lately, and they are such a great way to use the ever growing collection of scraps crafters collect and if we're completely honest with ourselves could never actually get through even if we had three lifetimes lol
I'll post the video so you can see the others when I'm done. Have a great week, love Jenny
