Life is a journey....

Hello everyone & welcome,
Today I would like to share with you a mini album that I have created using these beautiful Vintage Journal cards - mixed from Meg's Garden online store. The Vintage Journal cards are just one of the latest releases of papers now available for you to purchase.

For my album I selected all of the floral images from this series to create a gardening journal. This journal measures approximately 12.5cm x 18cm. I have covered the front & back covers using paper from the Shades of Green A4 paper range. Some lace, pearl trim, a metal charm, wording and a die cut frame complete my cover.

Each of the internal pages has been tea dyed using water & a tea bag. I love the variety of colours and patterns created by dipping and splattering this tea solution on each sheet of paper. Once each page was totally dry I set about creating my album. To create a vintage look to my journal I have used a distress ink called Tea Dye. I also used this ink pad for all of my stamping.
I have stamped one side of each page. Here you could add some writing or a photo.
The other side of each page is decorated using beautiful images and wording from the VJC series.

Each page is a little bit different. Some pages have pockets or tucks and there are lots of tags scattered throughout.

I have added embellishments of lace, pearl trim, SA pearls, ribbon, metal charms and a paper doily.
You can find lots of these embellishments in Meg's Garden online store.

My journal is held together with O rings, leaving room to add more pages in the future.
I hope I have inspired you to create this simple journal. A place to store information and memories of your garden.

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