#jjec 56 Station

Well this weeks prompt for Junk Journal Elements Challenge was a challenge!

This week we have Station / Pocket - so the pocket is easy but Station I wasn't too sure of.

So I went through a couple of my books, and found this page of Canary Wharf DLR Station in London.
I added my pocket on the side to the right.

In my pocket I popped a Envelope from TLCreates Vintage and a Ticket Tab stub from my stash. 

Love how it turned out, even if it's not that adventurous.

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Vintage Galz Altered Book Journal

Here's the next layout in my Altered Book Journal.

Kept it simple and vintage with this one.

Images by Gecko Galz and sentiment from TLCreates Vintage.
Coffee stained baking paper I stained a few months back.
Doily from my stash.
Vintage Photo Distress Ink used as well.

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Alice and the Altered Book Journal

I decided to play in my altered book and try to get it will happen!

The next two layout pages in my book I had already glued in the background papers so just had to decide on finishing them. 
I love these Digital Christmas Alice papers (Vectoria Designs), yes I did actually do these back in Oct/Nov 2020....I also changed jobs around then with my husband finishing his, so life had got a bit hectic there for a few months.

Now because this is mine, I can mismatch as much I like!

This first one on the left I put a Gecko Galz image - lol, love her and think she would be great with the Mad Hatter! The right page is just a pocket tuck.

Bahahaha, I found one of my Bernie Saunders images just hanging around so decided he could feel at home in Wonderland too!

My two Queen of Hearts Journal Cards are from TLCreates Vintage which sit nicely behind the belly band.

I have another I will share tomorrow as she isn't Alice related, and then 9 more layouts to go..... I found it relaxing to do these ones. 

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Goddess Gecko Galz ATC Swap

I am very happy that my ATC's made their way to my partner in the States.

Now I can show them to you without spoiling the surprise.....I did make a 4th one which I kept for myself.

The theme was Goddess. 

We got the 2 ATC files off the blog and had to make at least 3 to give to our partner using the images, but could add our own embellishments. 

This one is mine.....of course!

Again I got my quotes of google and printed them off.
I used some lace from my stash and a few rhinestone dots.

I am now in the middle of finishing this month's 3 and having some fun with them too!

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

#jjec 55 Elephants

Elephants along with "Inchies" is the prompt for this week's Junk Journal Elements Challenge.

So I couldn't really find anything suitable in my stash so off to google I went. 
So many great photo's to choose from, I couldn't stop at just one image .... so I printed off my fav's and then two that I though would make nice 'Inchies" - they are a 1" x 1" square - so yes, they are small. 

These are the two 'Inchies" I used in my journal.

I enjoyed the process and then placement of my elephants - I am so loving how this altered book journal is turning out.

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

Wanderlust 2021 Week 18

Gosh, I loved this weeks lesson with Maremi.....and I don't normally like doing collages as such.
We are still on the recycled theme so used papers in our stash.

I honestly love this page.
I got out some old pages from my stash along with some ephemera I had printed out from TLCreates Vintage Monthly Club files and maybe some others that are mixed in my bits and bobs stash box.
Some white Gesso and my black Aquarellable pencil.

I also got to use on of my wash off brush napkins - this is actually the second layer in (napkin is 3 ply hand towel) and just perfect for this page. When I paint, I have a paper napkin beside me and wipe it off onto it after I wash it in the water. Generally I have it folded in half so when I open it to dry I get the colour variation. 
Now you can't get more recycled than that!

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!

The prompt this week over at #MondayPromptProject is wings.

I watched the video and set about having a go with my charcoal pencil after creating a background that I though would work.

While I was waiting for the background to dry, I doodled my fairy with her wings on the back of a shopping docket...gotta be good for something hey!
Well she isn't the happiest looking fairy around I grant you, but she is just a practise one to give me a guide for placement and size.

Bahahahaha, so we are bolder, happier but a hot mess in the hair department!
Thankfully I have never once said I can draw so I don't have to be hard on myself!
I am getting better as I go along and that is great and all I need to keep me happy!
I got my water brush out and went over the charcoal for a washed effect and then my favourite water paints by Elena Art Pages.

Until next time, keep chasing white unicorns!
