Birdie Darling Pocket Journal~

Do you like to journal, tuck in treasures and collect memorabilia and small photos? Well then a pocket journal project may just be for you!! I just love all those things so creating these sweet little nooks are right up my alley. I created the following pocket journal using  the Scraps Of Elegance June Kit, but you can pick up the July Kit that is now availble! 

I created a pocket folder from the kit papers, 

and then layered on more kit paper layers that I distressed, a doily from the kit and a sweet Reneabouquets Birdie Darling Tag, adding on some Reneabouquets Tiny Treasures Fenton Art Glass Dragonflies for gorgeous texture and dimension.

I ran  some White Reneabouquets Timeless Lace across the bottom, pulled apart a Pink Petaloo Berry Pick and tucked the pieces under a Reneabouquets Soft Pink Chiffon Pearl & Rhinestones Flower, a little Prima Bird Nest, a SOE Floral Add On Flower and a little hand painted mulberry paper flower.

At the top corner, I took one of the Blue Fern Chipboard pieces from the SOE Embellishment Add On, distress painted it and then dusted it with Pink Reneabouquets Chunky Glitter Glass and Reneabouquets Silver Microbeads then popped on a Prima Ingvild Bolme Clock Faces and topped it off with another hand painted mulbery paper rose.

Here is the system that includes the pocket folder, two large tags created from the kit paper and Vintage Lace with little roses, two  smaller tags cut from the kit papers and topped with hand dyed seam binding and Ivory Resin Flowers , as well as an accordian fold piece cut from the kit papers.

A close up of all the tuck ins that give you so many sweet spots for journaling, small pictures and attatching memorabilia.  I hope you have a great weekend and find some time to create a special piece of art all your own!! Hugs ~Renea
