Welcome to my creative space!
I just adore the shabby vintage look of junk journals, but have never committed the time to creating one. So, I got to thinking . . . "What about creating a junk journal style home decor piece?" This is what I came up with. A while back I found this 4x8" easel board with bold Valentine graphics in the clearance section for a deep discount and thought it would be perfect to repurpose for one of my projects. Several coats of white gesso gave me a clean base to work with.
This beautiful vintage creation features Little Birdie Crafts ephemera, flowers, chipboard, and mixed media supplies along with vintage tea stained book pages along with lace, vintage buttons, and notions like snaps and hooks. I have a full photo tutorial with all the details on how I created this card up on the Little Birdie Crafts blog HERE. Thanks for stopping over there to leave a comment.
