Misc... Hand made embellishments- Paper Clip Banners- Vintage style

My BFF and I took a couple of hours yesterday just to work on embellishments for Junk Journals.
I coffee dyed all kinds of things Index Cards, Paper Doilies, Hymnal pages etc... I also give embossing powder on paper doilies a try. If i could think it, i tried it.  We also took Manila envelopes and painted Gesso all over them to prepare them for journals.  We had a blast and it had to end way too soon! I also started creating a few more Paper Clip Embellishments for a Vintage Junk journal. I made a tutorial on how to make these for the next TTCRD Magazine so if you subscribe to the magazine you can see the process on how i make mine. Fun, Fun!!!

Remember my Manila Envelope Junk Journal- this is the inside

Here are some of the pages that i completed for my mini Manila Envelope junk journal. If you didn't see the outside go HERE and check it out. These are my newest love this week. lol!
If you like Beautiful Ephemera to print, you definitely need to check out this site.   It's called Ephemera's Vintage Garden.  She gives some of the best freebies also, all you have to sign up for her newsletter to get them. Well Worth it, in my opinion. To view what i used in mine, i linked it all up below.












The Paper Clip banner on the right hand page i handmade. I will be creating a tutorial on how to make these to put in the next TTCRD magazine.





 The die cuts on the left side are from K & Company and layered for a tuck spot.

This doily was sprayed with Tattered Angels Spray and used as a tuck spot.

Lace was used for a tuck in the center of this page.  The Butterfly is a Chipboard shape that i found in my stash.


The Star on this doily is a sticker that i found.



The Right side of this page is a Pocket for photo's or memorable materials.
