Vintage Art Journal page

Hello my scrappin' sistas and a big welcome to my blog 
Here I am again sharing another of my art Journal pages 
and I have created this vintage page for my journal 
the older sepia photos just fascinate me 
and I wonder what the people in the photos are thinking 
 is just another way of keeping a diary
 Having fun with this one 
lots of rich colors and texture 
and of course layering and chippies .

photo sourced from Tumblr on Pinterest .

I have layered heaps of beautiful DUSTY ATTIC chippies 
under and around my vintage photo .
keeping a journal/diary is just wonderful to me 
I get to record my feelings and thoughts 
and keep them gathered in a book or my treasure box 
thanks so much for popping by 
I really love reading your words you leave me .
until next time happy scrapping x
