Book page pockets

Hi Everyone ! 
Today I made some pockets using book pages, these were inspired by Craftyirina on You tube, Irene have made beautiful pockets for the fall to send out as gifts, these can also be used in junk journals or used as little gift bags. 
I used some walnut stain to distress and age the edges of the pockets, the leaves where Tim Holtz tattered leaves die, I used some distress inks to colour them in fall colours... And some scraps to use as the centre band on the fronts ..
I made some some book page altered paper clips, some eye lash trim and some vintage buttons. 
Thanks for stopping by today :)

I am working on some more and i will share them when i am finished them.
I used, water color paints & pencils, gelato's, pro makers and some sharpies, my preference was the water colour paints & pencils,

Junk journal single signature

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all well and having a great weekend ! 
Last week I totally lost my crafty Mo Jo :( I could not start a single Project! It was driving me mad ! Anyway... On Friday I managed to get some inspiration and made a little single signature junk journal. It took me all as I needed to complete something to satisfy my craft obsession ! 
I used coffee dyed papers, designer paper from a recollection paper pad called mosaic memories. Done some stamping, made a few altered paper clips, added some stamped tags I had in my stash.... Here are the photos and at the end there is a link to my You tube video...
