Queen Bee Pocket Journal Created With The Scraps Of Darkness~Transistion Kit

I just love the Yummy Fall Colors in the Scraps Of Darkness September Kit~Transition!!

For the following project I used lots of paper pieces, paper layers, and flowers from the kit to create a pocket journal that has pull out pieces that you can journal on, add small photos to and collect some of your favorite Fall memories with~

I created the pocket from some of the kit paper, ran some Crochet Lace down the cut that forms the pocket,  then distressed and inked a second layer of paper.

I then grunged up some corrugated board using some Ranger Texure PastePrima Color Bloom Spray In Gilded, Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Rustic and Tarnished Brass, and then I inked over it with Vintage Photo Ink. While the texture paste was still wet, I sprinkled on some Reneabouquets Chunky Glitter Glass in Spice, and added some Gold Microbeads.  

I then Die Cut some of the paper, added on one of the Ephemera pieces from the kit. Then I used a digital Queen Bee Image Freebie and mounted it in a Prima Oval Resin Frame. I added a little Vintage Metal Spoon, and a large flower from the kit. 

To top it off I added some Reneabouquets Harmony Butterflies with Copper Antennas. 

Here you can see all the pieces untucked from the pocket. 

Thank you so much for dropping by and checking out my pocket journal!! I hope you have a great day, and many Fall Days full of memories! Hugs ~Renea
