Well I am at it again creating new junk journals that I will put up for sale in my Etsy I thought I would share the most recent one with you and was inspired by my mother and Grandmothers Sewing rooms. This one is called Grandmas Sewing Box and the cool technique I did was take marbled tissue paper and crinkle it and glue it on each page so it resembles pattern paper.....was it hard no time consuming YES!

The products I used were from Gecko Galz and the book is from Studio Cee on Etsy.

So I ask you to leave a comment and tell me what your think!

Have a crafty day
