I just have to warn you…this will be a bit long today! So much to share, and it’s only half of my little project!
I wanted to do something special this month with all the delicious vintage ephemera available from Vintage Street Market, and I decided to do what I love best–art journal it.
My current passion, art journaling lends itself to many forms–there is no right or wrong when making a journal of your very own–and making one completely out of beautiful, old pieces of paper from the past was just about the most fun I’ve ever had!
Since old ephemera varies in thickness and delicacy, I decided to bolster each page with a good, sturdy piece of cardstock–each 5×7 inches. Then I just covered each and every piece with a variety of vintage pieces…I cut & ripped, pasted & played…
Then, favorite vintage images that I’ve saved on the computer were printed out to add a bit of character to each page–my favorite thing to do.
Then laces, Twirly Twine, buttons and bows were added…
…then the writing, of course! What would a journal be without writing your thoughts, favorite poems & bits of advice?
It doesn’t take much to turn a little book like this into a treasure to keep–something of your very own…
I can’t wait to show you the rest next time!
