When I got the new Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood Paper Pad in the Reneabouquets.com and Reneabouquets Etsy Shop, I was dying to get to scrap with it!! I just love those bold colors mixed with the black and creams. I decided to do one of my FAV off the page projects, a Sewn Pocket Journal:
I started with a Sewn Pocket Journal Base, and inked it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink. I cut the papers down to fit the front and back and layered those on, inking the distressing and inking the edges with the same ink.
Next, I added on some Black Doily Lace , took a Blue Fern Small Roman Clock Chipboard and emboss inked it with some Ranger Big Emboss It Ink and embossed the clock with some gold embossing powder, and then added some Black Microbeads for textures. I then cut an image from the papers and let the clock piece "frame" it. I created a flower cluster using the Large Rose from the Ivory Mulberry Paper Wild Roses, Gardenias & Leaves Set, and a Small Rose from the
Dark Teal Mulberry Paper Roses & Leaves Set, and then added on some Tiny Treasures Glamorous Butterflies.
To add my sentiment "Born To Be A Star" in, I took a Baroque Metal Frame, and cut the first part of the Sentiment out and added it to it, then added on some crystals that matched the papers, and then cut the Star along with the Graphic from the papers, added a large crystal and added that to the bottom corner of the clock.
I then cut some of the Hollywood Stamps from the papers folded those and then took a Tarnished Brass, Metal Clip Bookmark With Cabochon, cut a piece from the papers and added that to the glass dome, and used the clip to attach the stamps to the pocket.
Here you can see all the tuck ins that I created to go inside the Pocket, that one can use to journal, and add small moments to. They include:
2-Large Double Sided Tags with Seam Binding Bows and Vintage Peacock Brooch Accents
2- Medium Double Sided Pieces
2-Smaller Double Sided Pieces
1-Folded, Double Sided Booklet
1-Double Sided Stamp Strip
And this is the Back Side that is finished out in matching, distressed and inked, papers.
I just love creating these pieces, and I hope that you have enjoyed my walk through of this one!!
