"Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honor all the day." Ps. 71:8
Hello Dear Readers and T gang. Today, you find me happily crafting! I have been junk journaling today as well as card making, so I will share both.
In our Dear Julie, Julie Junk Journal January Challenge, we are to use junk only!
No new paper, no stamping, unless we make the stamps out of junk and our ink pad out of junk and food dye. I won't be doing that as I have plenty of ink pads and stamps. Just won't use them for this challenge.
One of our challenge elements to be made is a belly band with two inserts. I made a belly band and put it on one of my pages that is a paper from an old Ideals magazine. The Belly band is a map scrap from an outdated atlas. I decorated with a tea tag, stamp and srap digi of a postcard. One insert is one of 8 notes we can use. I decorated with a punched tab from packaging, another scrap of digi postcard and a tea from a tea box. The other insert is an envelope someone sent me a ATC card in. I decorated with a stamp, and can actually put something in it. Just, an FYI, I store my ATCs in a pocket style book. I die cut the corner for this page from a book page. I haven't done anything yet to the page across. It is a sack that was sprayed with water, wadded up then ironed and cut to a two page size. Something I saw on You tube. :)
Another project was a card I made for today's Clean and Simple Challenge on SpitcoastStampers.
We were challenged to go back in our gallery and pick out one of our own cards and CASE it: Copy and Share Everything, and to use an old stamp.
I went back in my gallery to 2017 and found one with this cute SU! image from Friendships Grow.
I started with Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series paper by SU! I stamped the background script stamp, also SU! on it with Island Indigo. Then I sponged with Pool Party ink, and then rubbed off the access, and magically the dots appear. That is what the specialty paper does!
The layers are Recollections white, Island Indgo, and the image is stamped on Whisper white. I colored the image with TH Distress Markers. I layered some seam binding under the sentiment and image.
Do you spy my beverage ticket to the TSFT party over at Bleubeard & Elizabeths? There are actually two items. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great week!
