Card tutorial for A Vintage Journey, some journal pages and a collaboration freebie

 Hello friends,

Today I am posting an extensive card tutorial on the A Vintage Journey Blog. This is what it looks like:

For the focal image of the card, which in fact turned into the cover of an Autumn journal I am working on, I used one of the girls from the freebie you can find at the end of this post. This freebie was created in collaboration with my friend Marjie Kemper. She is a wonderful mixed media artist that runs a number of online classes including a recently started Mixed Media Art Membership Group in which she offers a resource library too. It was for that resource library that she asked me to create the freebie, which links to one of the monthly challenges that are also part of this group. There is currently a waiting list to join, but if you are new to mixed media, I'm sure it would be worth joining the group. (I am not a member myself, but have done classes with Marjie in the past and have met her in person, and can assure you she is a wonderful person and amazing artist).
Below I will show you how I used the card in the end for my journal cover, and also some pages, using some of the freebie images and other pages from last week's freebie and my latest Etsy collection
Here you can see the cover, created with strong Kraft card and covered with some paper from my stash. And below some of the inside papers, decorated with a whole mixture of things, some altered journal cards using bits and bobs from my stash, some stamping and some elements from my collection on Etsy. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

Well, that's it as far as the journal is concerned, so here is the freebie, and like usual, if you want to get a high resolution copy, just email me.

If you are interested to find out how I made the journal topper, do head over to A Vintage Journey

That's it for today, thanks for your visit and happy creating!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
