Vintage Life Moments Altered Tin with journaling/dividers

I have been in mod podge up to my eyeballs and i love it! I aged some book papers ,( that i recycled from the recycle center LOL), and ripped them up and added to this tin. I was lucky to get 2 scrabble games from the thrift store and now im loaded up on scrabble letters, so i used them on the front of this tin. Kraft paper die cut into the roses and added some little brown pearls. reproduced ephemera added to the tin as well. I wrapped the handle with some twine and added some toule and string with 2 chipboard tags aged , one to add your name, and the second one I debossed LIVE and accented it with white paint to stand out.
Inside are 8 dividers all unique with special words, like blessings, learn, grow.....some have places for journaling one a tag tucked in a pocket others have little frames to put in your own pictures, all have a journaling spot on the back of each. The tin has room for lots more pictures to add behind each divider and mementos! I have listed this on my etsy please check out the side bar and follow your way over to check it out. Thanks for stopping by!

Spread your Wings and Fly Journals

here is a 12 page front to back handmade journal. I made one as a gift for a sweet lady who gifted me Soul Restoration 2 class. And i made another one to sell on etsy . I have not done a journal before with the paper bag albums, so this is a first, but i think they turned out great! lots of places to journal and make is special as your own. I used Basic Grey papers, there are 2 pull out pages for lots of journaling or pictures if one so desires!

Inchies Project!

Some of my new found friends whom i have met through Brave Girls , have started making these Inchies...cutting out 1 inch , 2 inch and 3 inch squares and placing them in a pattern and designing beautiful pieces of art! So I had to give it a go. I have a dear sweet friend who supports me in my art and in my life! I thought i would send this along with her order as a thank you for all she does for me! I love how it turned out and I am thinking on making up some more and ONE for me! Its a great way to use up your scraps! I added some wire with some beads and ribbon! Thank you Brave Girls for your inspiration!
