Happy Holidays: Christmas Junk Journal

Happy Holidays Friends!
I’ve had this project on my art desk in various stages for some time now.
I was delighted to find some time to sneak away and finish it up before the year ended.    
Like many of you, I adore working with fibers, threads and fabrics,
and in this project I created little page labels and tags using these items.
I love how the little labels came out and will use this technique again. 
I found inspiration in putting these colors together when I came upon a Pier 1 Christmas sale and found this fabulous birch tree inspired paper wrapping.
I couldn’t wait to unwrap it and get started to complete the journal.
See the link to my YouTube Channel below, and 
Here are some of pages you will find in my junk journal:

  Check out what became of the wrapping paper in my junk journal too.

The little metal round tag, inventory tags, elegant and delicate tatting looking lacy bit,
and the black and white striped paper bas was purchased from A Tattered Dream on Etsy 

Thank you for looking and I will see you again in the New Year!
