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

You are tempting me to give it a go on a Junk Journal. I keep saying I'm going to create one. In my spare time, right?

These pages are exquisite and I love everything about it. Keep making me smile with your art, dear Dorthe!

Happy Easter

I'm so happy to see this post over Easter Dorthe, so lovely to see all your work from one page to the next what a wonderful journal this is even if we can only see from your photo's as you flick through the pages.
A collaboration of vintage ephemera and lace all handmade with love, you have spent these uncertain hours making the most of your talented hands. How I especially loved to see the bird, possibly wondering where we have all gone..
How peaceful their new world must be right now.
Wishing you & yours good wishes this Easter bank holiday, we are all keeping well & doing as we should.
Stay safe dearest Dorthe, think of you all hugs Tracey xx

It's so lovely to have you turn the pages for us so that we can see every spread in its full glory, Dorthe. These pages are so full of treats for the eyes and for the fingertips - the ruffles and fibres and different aged papers all bring depth and texture to the journal, and the recurring images of nature and all the different fonts and texts and script make me so happy. The stitching detail and "pressed" flowers are wonderful final touches. Magical.

I hope April is being gentle with you.
Stay safe, stay well.

A feast for the eyes, this is truly delightful dear Dorthe - such beauty to feed the soul in these difficult times. I know I always say it but I really do love the touches you put to your work, the gorgeous little pieces of lace and paper and stitching - all just exquisite.
Thank you for sharing, and I hope you are staying safe and well my dear friend,
Hugs, Diana xx

Thank you for sending us all Easter Greetings, hope yours was safe and happy. I love all the birds in this journal. At least this break from all our activity in the world is being enjoyed by all the birds and other creatures. My garden is full of insects this year. Take care x
