A CJ entry

I'm loving my crafting rebirth. There is so much I want to do and there just aren't enough hours in the day, what with housework and feeding the kids and all the other mundane jobs that need doing around the house.
Over on UK Scrappers I was somehow roped in to host a Circle Journal. I've just finished this month's entry. The CJ's title is All our Yesterdays and the owner wants a vintagy feel on any subject. For me the obvious choice was Vintage Vogue. My love of fashion and sewing combined with my crafting obsession really got me excited about this one.



It's a really small picture, but I'll explain it asdbest as I can. I used the Sew Cute range from My Little Shoebox, lots of distress inks, Tim Holtz ruler ribbon and Tattered angels resist alphas. My printer was having a tantrum so I cut pictures out of old sewing pattern envelopes. I tore up some sewing instruction sheets, crumpled them and distress inked them. I did the same with pattern tissue paper which I then sort of squashed up and stuck on the right hand side of the page. The little dress forms and cotton reels are stamped with the sew cute stamps, cut out and coloured. I also wrapped some bakers twine around the cotton reels and then stuck them on the pages with foam squares to give them some dimension. Hope you like it an TFL
