As some of you know have generously offered 
A free class , which I was lucky to be a part of ,-- you can read more about it here : but it might have closed by now !!!!!

These are spreads from ithe inside book ,and most are little clusters I created 

I used many different bits and pieces .

This beautiful gift arrived to me from my dear friend Marie 
Isent it Amazing , a folder Holding lots of beautiful tags . 

I love all she created for me 

Wonderful tags in inside lovely pockets 

Im sorry if this looks Strange , but Im forsed to blog from my  phone 
as I cant suddenly download my photos to my computer .

The almost last pages in my journal -

HAPPY EASTER to you all , I hope you spend cosy , safe and lovely days ,
even we spend them at home and alone , most of us. 

Here are the next five spreads in my junk-journal ,

The materials are mostly the same , as described in the first post
of this ,-  here I also used a piece of an old floor cloth , lovely tattered ,
you see it near the bird-  (please click the photoes for more clearly see the details ) 

Maybe you can see the little handrolled flower, which I was inspired
to flatten , after watching one of  : Sigitacoffeestains   you-tube ,-to make it more suitable for a journal, - Thank you Sigita . In right page you see a tiny tag peaking out from a pocket .

Here a ruffle on the left on top of old paper, and to the right a little pocket
with another tag inside .

Handmade flower and yo-yo ,  a bit of slow-stitching 
laces and machine stitching .

And for now the last one , papers from  The Paper Garden again
(see link in my earlier post )  paper napkins and more machine stitching .
I`m not satisfied with the photos, but hope you can see better when clicking them .

I also hope you are all safe and keep going, in this our new world. It gives heavy 
thoughts , and even tears on some days, and therefore this community is so important
for so many of us, sharing our creations, and thoughts , thank you for being there !!

Hugs and love Dorthe
