My Story I Will Share : Eileen Hull Junk Journal

Hello and welcome to this picture heavy post of my first Junk Journal using the Eileen Hull die. 


I have had so much fun so far and it is still a work in progress! The intention is to share MY story, so the first signature will be about my childhood. 

Many thanks to my lovely friends Anne Redfern and Brenda Brown for sharing the journal covers (my ordered die is yet to arrive) and to Jenny Marples for so many lovely ideas for decorating.  And of course to Eileen Hull for coming up with the idea of the die in the first place.















I have another journal in progress too - one for my sailing holiday on the west coast of Scotland which has to be finished before midday tomorrow as I leave on the ferry tomorrow night! 

Thank you for staying with me this far!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Jeannie! I saw your journal cover on Pinterest and had to come over to your blog to see it all. Love the soft vintage colors and your style of collage is great. I will be "tuning in" often to see more of your art!
