Paris No 2 Junk Journal

Welcome to my blog today. I have been busy posting a few projects I have made. I hope you take the time to look at older post.
This is actually my third junk journal Paris themed but my second one is having issues with the binding.Lol we just will say this is No 2.This is for sale in my Etsy store. Click HERE
This is the cover. I used some Recollections paper from Michaels  the paper pack is called "My minds eye".
I also used a NEW wonderful  product  from Canvas Corp ..Brands..They are rub ons....I will let you look there..I love their products.The face on the front is a rub on and it made the Paris theme for me...
okay moving on...
 In watching the videos which all those ladies just make it look so easy...and I chuckle...
This is made with a brown envelope
I left the opening open and added many beautiful pieces
I used Wendy Vecchi sentiment..you can find her stamps at 

 https://stampersanonymous.com/
Both pages have her sentiments.
I am not sure where the image came from. When my Mother was dying and I was caring for her I printed many many things and did not take note where they came from. The past few months I have began organizing 8 years of art chaos including my files..so needless to say in the future I will be so much better at knowing where images come from.
I made a small tuck pocket for a note.
The next two pages include more from my stash. 
I have a huge file of images I have no idea where many came from. I have collected many beautiful and strange things in the past ten years.
I stitched a small border on this journaling card.
There is stenciled art on the journaling page behind the card.
on the opposite page
a Wendy Vecchi sentiment..here and there a guest check with umbrella man from Tim Holtz as well as a letter with Tim Holtz gate piece and butterfly.

The next page has a top tuck with I put a letter and a small notebook inside the top pocket.

 The next  page has another Wendy Vecchi sentiment. It is made on the extra piece of graph paper.
The little bird was gifted to me from my sweet friend Patti LaBombard. The bird is from Fun Stampers Journey. I made into a small tag and there is a medium tag I made using a Wendy Vecchi sentiment and canvas corp Brands fabric as a ribbon.
This is a blank letter and I used recollections washi tape (the pink butterfly) and the stamp is from Tim Holtz ephemera package.The small tag is stamped with another Tim Holtz stamp with Paris and it looks like a postage image.


The next page is a side tuck some bling and a guest check again :)
The next page opposite of this one has a blank letter a medium tag and some ephemera from Tim Holtz.

The next page is a extra graph paper with stenciling and a piece of Tim Holtz ephemera.

The full page on the opposite has a tag made using egg carton crate and a stamp from Smeared Ink.
 
I love this sentiment from Wendy Vecchi "Do Not Disturb the Artist"
The next page has room for writing behind the tag and there is a extra graph paper and the tag is blank and everything in the journal is coffee stained.
The little frog is unknown to me but I think he is so cute. I am adding him into my journals like my dear friend Jenise Miller..I love her beautiful art and this is her You Tube connection.
I love to learn and admire her art...any way Jenny added a bunny a cute little bunny. lol
The next page is a image from sweet Pea Stamps by artist Ching Chow Kuik i colored with watercolors(not very well sadly)
The next page has room for writing under Tim Holtz "Serendipity" sentiment,
The guest check is coffee stained laced stamped and I added a piece from Canvas Corp Brands paper.
There is a extra and then the next page has a tag tuck with a coffee stained paper and room to write around the tuck. The image on the tuck is a stamp from Tim Holtz I colored with color arte luminarte and prisma pencils.
 The next page I used Tim Holtz ephemera for a left bottom corner tuck added a tag I made by coffee staining and I used Prima paper.There  is graph paper coffee stained behind that.
The extra is graph paper and then the next sentiment is from 12x12 paper from Canvas Corp Brands. 
The next page is like the one prior with lace and a sentiment from Canvas Corp Brands paper
The next page...
has a beautiful Mary.My sister shared with me the beautiful Cathedrals in France I felt this was a excellent add in.The image I think is from Alpha stamps I could be very wrong..
The next page is from a old magazine. I just cut it out and kept it. In fact I did a horrid job of cutting it out lol.I do not know from which old magazine or add.
The middle extra I added a Tim Holtz piece of ephemera.
The next page I used Prima paper for a slot to hold a coffee stained tag graph paper. The tag is covered with Prima paper and the back is blank to journal on.


The next page has to middle pockets on the left a Wendy Vecchi small tag of her famous antique truck on the right the sentiment is from Unity stamps and most of the ephemera comes from Tim Holtz ephemera and stamp collection.
The next two pages have Tim Holtz sentiment a dried flower and a bike from paper from Canvas Corp Brands and on the right a blank letter and ephemera from Tsunami Rose...and ephemera from the Tim Holtz ephemera collection.

This sentiment was just to perfect from Wendy Vecchi stamp collection ..I added nothing to the middle pages
 I used egg carton again and Tim Holtz ephemera some coffee stained blank papers for these two pages.

The next two pages have more stamping from Tim Holtz and stampers Anonymous.
The next two have Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi papers from Prima and recollections.
The next two pages..
