Junque Journals "2019"

Hello Hello!!
I've been busy here at home working on making Junque Journals.  They are picked up by my girls as fast as I made them LOL!   I've got several now ready to be sold on my Etsy shop  and hope to have them listed soon.

I've been making ephemera  for my Junque Journals so much fun. 

Lots of crazy fun! They are designed with lots of pages to journal in and have lots of pockets and tuckspot to keep your memories in.
They are all handmade including most of the epherma.  You add your thoughts, wishes or wants pictures or ticket stubs etc....

Oh my they're multiplying!

Azalea with her new Gingermelon dolly.  I had to make her one, as she busted out in tears when I told her she had to put mine back.

Anna's sister was made during a KraaftShaack #kraaftingittogether live Google event on this past Saturday. host Heather Kraafter has a Patreon account that I belong to and love being apart of.  She can also be found on YouTube with lot's of great art videos.  She has mohair hair and I made her a pair of shorts too with French knots to decorate the bottom edge. I named her Bianca (close to Blanca Spanish for White).  These little Gingermelon pocket dolls are so addicting just sitting and hand sewing the felt dolls while listening to programs or a book.

I received a tin of Polychromos Faber Castel, colored pencils for Christmas from my husband and had fun trying them out in my mixed media book. I really do love them they lay down very nice and are vibrant a color.

This is a Patreon bonus sketch from CeeCee' Creations 12 days of Christmas art work. She does amazing artwork and is very generous with her time and videos (also on YouTube) that she makes for her patrons.  She has an Etsy account that she sells the sketches and artwork.
