Vintage Inspired Dream Big Altered Journal

Recently I have been on a vintage altering phase and it has led to some really interesting things to make. After thumbing through numerous magazines and books, I decided to create my own "vintage-inspired" notebook. I sewed the pages into the book and then sewed the outer cover and back to the pages. I used various fibers to basically circle the entire book. Using various alphabet looks and shapes I added the word: Thought. I used a Tim Holtz Secret Key and some K& Co. stickers and embellies. Love how the book turned out.

"Adore" Cricut 16"x20" Wall Art

Using my beloved Cricut, I used the heirloom cartridge and cut a tree, the chandelier, a bird and the word Adore. Using some Tim Holtz distressing paint (Linen) I painted a 16"x20" blank canvas and then used modge podge to attach the cut outs. Love how the contrast looks in my living room.
