My junk journal , shown with all pages !!

Many of you might have seen this  junk journal ,on IG and FB , but I hope you 
will have yet another look , here, too.

The journal is created using all kind of paper scraps, and fabrics-

packing pieces, send to me from friends in the big world, used tea-bags ,

little rags from my stash

handmade tags, and a real embroidered leaf , added to an envelope 

Here another tea-bag lady , and a rolled rose,

This was a card I was not satisfied with, so tore it to pieces,
and used them separately .

Piece of tea bag paper , and everything sprayed with infusions .

The last photo is a paper napkin adhered to fabric. ( left side )

I like to link this to  Mini Album Makers Challenge 

Also hoping you are all well , out there, -and sending you
hugs and love!

Oh my, Dorthe it's superb!! The colors are so pale and soft looking. On that one page I imagined a fairy lounging on the little pile of textiles. So very pretty. Thank you for posting the complete journal on your blog. I think I will go back and admire some more. Hugs, Helen

Wow Dorthe, this is utterly enchanting. What a beautiful little journal and such exquisite details - I love every single embellishment and wish I had a stash of scraps like yours! The delicate blush pink is perfection.

Oh my goodness, Dorthe - this is a masterpiece. The natural themes and elements and the gentle rose blush colour tones give the whole journal a coherence and harmony which makes my soul sing. So many glorious tiny details... the leaves, the laces, the tiny tabs and tags, and wonderful stamped images emerging from the layers. It really is completely beautiful. I've been missing in action for a while, but so happy to be back to enjoy this amazing creation.

I'm sure I left a long comment here - how mean of Blogger to lose it!

I'm blown away by your beautiful journal, Dorthe - the soft blush tones are just gorgeous, with a warmth and romance to them which is so perfect. I love the natural elements and images throughout - giving the journal a real coherence as you turn the pages, with echoing themes and ideas - the flowers, the leaves, the wonderful women. As always, you have created amazing textures with your laces and fabrics. This must be just as much of a treat for the fingertips as for the eyes. Simply wonderful.

(I hope Blogger doesn't mess it up this time!)

Dearest Dorthe I have no idea why or how I have missed this magnificent creation whilst looking to see if you had posted recently I saw two I appear to have missed. How lovely is this junk journal full of everything you know I love, reminds me of something I have under my wing that i'm working on at present but like many things I find hard to share just yet.
I do miss out on treasures just like this shying away from FB & IG but especially in times like this i'm better avoiding those places.

You put so much love and affection to your creations Dorthe how i'd love to see this up close, i'm so blessed to have so many special creations made by you talented hands. Keep sharing my dear I do love every precious creation.
Stay safe my friend.. Sending creative hugs your way Tracey xx
