ephemera

Today i am sharing some photos of the journal i made for the Chocolate Barqoue October tv shows.

I don't know about you, but I find that if I try to plan a project out in detail, it always goes wrong - happened again with this journal! It's much safer to just play, get messy and inky and then see what i have got.





I used a Sizzix journal die, and had plans to create a mixed media holiday souvenir journal using all the stamps in the ephemera sets and some older seaside related sets.



The cover went ok, using kraft card as the base with lots of gesso and paint splodged on. and the beach huts stamped in the centre, with the journey word. I also used a mini photo from Crafty Individuals
 I ended up salvaging the better of the inner pages to create a slim journal - this one had another  CI image, the beach huts again, ammonite stamp , sea shells and the travel ticket.
I also used the chess stamps, the fountain scenelighthouse and flower stamps to create the other pages.
 I did have fun - sort of - and next time I won't bother planning it out!



 I also reused an empty coffee can, covering it with kraft card and stamping images using brown ink, adding colour with pencils.
