Part 2...Vintage Junk Journal

Hello everyone & welcome.
Take a wander through the 2nd part of my signature. Papers & embellishments are available from Meg's Garden online store.
Throughout this journal I have used pieces of ephemera that have been taken from the cut & create sheets. Ephemera can be used in so many different ways, such as to decorate a page or create a tag, a pocket, a tuck spot or to embellish the cover of a book or journal.

Here I have made a tuck spot with some stamping & on the other page I have created a pocket using patterned paper that has been decorated with lace and a handmade tag with ephemera pieces.

I have created a belly band that has been decorated with lace then sewn in place.

A tuck spot decorated with stamping & a paper flower cluster plus a hand made tag.

Lots of pockets made using patterned paper, then decorated with lace & a paper flower.

Pockets & tucks. On the other page I have used an envelope to create a pocket that has then been  decorated with ephemera pieces.

I have stitched in place a hand dyed & stamped vellum pocket plus a decorated tag.

A pretty belly band with lace trim & a paper flower embellishment.

A large pocket created using patterned paper.

A vellum pocket plus a handmade stamped & decorated tag.

A different style belly band.

Patterned paper pockets.

A sheet of writing paper for journaling.  The other page has some tuck spots & a pocket.

A pocket with a tag. The other page has a tuck spot plus a vellum pocket.

A large pocket with a small flip out book (see the last two pictures below).

A stamped doily pocket.

Back cover.

Flip out book, cover plus pockets inside with ephemera & a small glasine bag.
I hope you have enjoyed looking through my junk journal creation.

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