Desigual inspired lay-out (junk journal page #1)

This week's Stampotique designers Challenge is about using something Santa brought or something you recently bought yourself , so I used the paper bag in which my present was wrapped, because not only the handbag is beautiful, also the paper bag in which it came, I knew immediately I was going to use that in my art journal.

This is the handbag from Desigual Santa brougth for me, guessing I was nice this year.

So I glued a piece of the paper bag down as background (yeay, I still have left over to use in an other project)
The package also contained this quote “you are not the same”. This got me thinking about nature, how no one flower or butterfly is the same, so I created some flowers with Dylusions spray ink on which I added wooden flowers.

I also used for the first time my Dylusions ink pad, which I bought a while ago  on a crafts fair but hadn’t used yet, to stamp the butterflies.

I discoverd this group created by Clare called Junk Journaling 2014, I like the idea of re-using materials that otherwise would land in the bin.
As I re-used the package, I will be linking this also to this challenge.

Till next time, bye for now

    1. Thanks, can't wait to make some more junk journal pages, so many ideas running through my mind.

  2. You definitely "choreographed" this project! It is beautiful done and with something many would just throw away. That's frugal crafting at its best! Thanks for sharing this with us at Stampotique!

    1. Thanks for the sweet words, that's what keeps me going.

  3. fab colours and so vibrant - love it
