Following my first post about my journal cum scrapbook, I've decided just to call it a scrapbook journal (it's easier for me to remember that being the main reason).
So as not to bore you every other day with any pages I've done, I plan to add them here about once a month.
Here are my latest pages:
I found the embroidery on this page in a tin of fabric squares (some on backing papers for patchwork), more embroidery and embroidery thread, which had been in our loft since my Mum and Dad moved house. The embroidery itself, has been done by me, probably about 25+ years ago.
This page has one of the fabric squares mentioned above.
The paper in the background for this page came in a Christmas present from my Mum and Dad, it had come all the way from Lawrence, Kansas, from one of my favourite bloggers, Karla Nathan. It is vintage wrapping paper, isn't it beautiful? The image of the Edwardian lady is from Pinterest.
The letters used in this one came from an old board game.
More images from Pinterest, with a spot of lace.
The piece of cross-stitch here was made by me a few years ago when I was experimenting with squares.
This page is also influenced by Karla. She's been making faeries for a project and I decided to do one myself. The square image is of a medieval tile. I found the image in a Victorian book when I used to work in the library, so I must have had that about 15+ years. At least is shows that all of my bits of 'junk' are used eventually!
A simple image of a flowering cactus taken from a leaflet advertising Folio Society books. I liked the image, but I did used to grow a couple of cacti when I was young too.
