I was so über delighted when Doris invited me to guest design for Jenni Bowlin this month! (See the original post on the Jenni Bowlin blog here.) I have to admit that while I love and adore vintage I've never felt like I really did it well. So I was a bit intimidated when my box of delicious goodies arrived -- afraid that I'd screw it up royally! But as with all things scary, as soon as I put my mind to, it turned out to be so very easy to mix Jenni's style with my own!
The journaling stamp was a square, but I needed to fill a rectangle. You can see that I simply masked off the top of the stamp and stamped it again at the bottom of the image to create a longer stamped image.
These large silhouette rub-ons were so super scary to me when I first saw them. But the longer I stared at them, the more they started to look like characters from my favorite novel: Pride & Prejudice!
I layered the pink silhouette on top of the black "machine needles" rub-on. I felt like the black rub-on would dominate (and even title) the page if I didn't obscure it slightly. And I love the way the journaling inside the silhouette looks!
I used the journaling label stamps as containers for hand cut pieces of patterned paper. Jenni Bowlin offers paper in 12x12 and little 4x4 packs as well. I used the two different sizes of the same patterns together for a really cool look!
And finally an art journal page:
So there you go! Lots of vintage goodness Julie style! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Happy Passover to those who celebrate it!
