Hello every-one,

I hope this finds you well. I have been having heaps of fun putting together my first two pages of a journal I am starting.

This idea came from a creation Alison put together over at Words and is the link

I loved this piece so much.....just had to have something similar for myself and I thought what better way to start my journal. Pop on over to Alison's blog her work is absolutely amazing.

This is Alison's wonderful creation........


White embossing paste
Black Ink
Vintage Photo
Tea Dye
Black Soot
Vintage Sepia Ink
Lindy's Stamp Gang Dark Chocolate Truffle & Afternoon Delight Denim
Paper Clips
Various Stamps
Postcard cutouts
Old Photos

This is my attempt to create something similar....

I hope you have enjoyed today's piece. Would love to hear what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
