The (first) Finished Journal πŸ€“πŸ““

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my first journal. 😊

There will be lots of pictures…so you might wanna grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back, and (hopefully) enjoy πŸ˜ƒ

This one is different than the first pages I showed you last week. I took a bound book, and worked on those pages.

The book I chose was ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

Here it is with a few pages of coffee-stained paper…

The inside cover

On the left is a piece of handmade paper I found in a Thrift Shop. I made envelopes, pockets and tags – you’ll find them, and some original illustrations, throughout the journal…

The back-inside cover

Here are some tags and inserts…

All of them have a decorated front, and a blank back…lots of room for writing and doodling 😍

In the end I felt that the vintage look of the inside didn’t really match the plastic-y cover. So I gave it a new cover 😁 What do you think?

This is the end of my ‘ Show and Tell’ πŸ˜… I hope you enjoyed the little trip into the Wonderland. Did you? A little note in the comments would be greatly appreciated! πŸ’•

I’ll see you soon! Take care! πŸ€—

A Collage For A New Mom πŸ˜

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I hope you’re doing well, and have a happy spring in your step on this lovely Monday!

Today I wanna show you the collage I made for my daughter, a new Mom 😊

You may remember…in January we welcomed little Georgia Mae to the world. I’m happy to report that she’s a very happy, smiley baby πŸ₯°

Here she is with her beautiful Mommy

So, since January I’ve been collecting little Mom/Baby related snippets, with the idea of somehow combining it all into a memento. It was just an idea in the back of my mind…until last Thursday. That’s when I came across a canvas hiding in a closet in my craft room. 😁

That, my hodgepodge of calendar pages, pictures, poems, doilies, a vintage music sheet,tissue paper, and some ModPodge* came together beautifully for this collage.

Here’s a detail – I love these little poems πŸ’–

I started by covering the canvas with one sheet of tissue paper, arranged and glued down the pictures, then secured and coated everything with ModPodge*. Done! Easy Peasy πŸ˜…

Did this inspire you to make your own memento-collage? Please let me know…I’d love to hear/read about it! πŸ’•

Have a fabulous day! 😎🌻🌞
