Today I'm sharing my shabby chic Summer Place Junk Journal.
It’s stuffed with old things I used to hold
a collage featuring an old ticket to a play I attended;
Pansies I dried years ago and now have a home in my journal;
a letter from Grandma which included a dollar to buy ice cream on the way home
from the neighborhood pool;
a post card from my favorite Pre-Raphaelite Artist;
and some music sheet to, “ A Summer Place” by Percy Faith.
When I was a young child, my mom would play
this song when she set up to oil paint
or do some chores.
Then and today, it
still resonates with me.
I feel all is right in the world and it still brings a
tear to my eye.
I can't use my theme some to a Summer Place on YouTube, so I had to choose another classical piece of music to use in stead. Thanks for viewing with me.
All the chipboard, and linen fabric in the junk journal was
treated with yummy, creamy Shimmerz Paints.
Let me tell you what I used.
Chipboard: Acritonez-Three Sheets to the Wind Inklingz – Pugnacious Purple, Precious Posey, and I Love you
Onyxly Shimmerz – Orchid-stra
Blingz- Gold Glimmer Shimmer – Berry-licious
Coffee dyed paper and white linen fabric:I combined the following two products to
achieve a dusty lilac color.
Sharing some dress pattern vintage tags with you here today using Shimmerz Paint Products.
Pattern paper was applied on cardstock and sewn along the
edges. Some Spritz Truffle, Shimmeringz Bronze Bombshell was spritz on top of
the tags and allowed to dry.Some Inklingz
Penny 4 Your Thoughts was applied with a wet brush on top of the spritz.Apply your favorite stamp, white embossing powder and set with a heat
gun.One of the tags has a little
postage stamp collage on top.
These tags quite simple to create and they look vintage enough
to insert in my next vintage junk journal.
