MEGS GARDEN - Sherlock by Watson

Hello everyone hope you are well
a very warm welcome to my blog 
today I am sharing 
 using the fabulous Sherlock papers by Kerry-Jean Watson
I do love creating arty journals
and these papers are perfect .
Meg sells this in kit form 
available from Megs Garden website . 
be prepared for a long post as there are quite a few pics 
The journal contains 14 pages 
here goes
created with the Sherlock collection. 
 I love the vintage feel to these papers.

My cover has been altered with inks stain and crackle paint 
It has turned out more deeper than I expected but that happens sometimes 
the inside pages are created with black bazzill 
the papers dont need a lot of embellishments as they 
have design markings, perfect for art journals.
I added some washi tape, stitching, inking and stamping. 
with some metal embellies from the kit .

 some journaling on 
pages 1 and 2

pages 3 and 4  
I adore fossicking around in op shops discovering vintage treasures

 pages 5 and 6 
old post cards are so precious and old vintage wares 
found in a bric a brac shop .

 Pages 7 and 8
how beautiful are these vintage  post cards of 
little girls and their dolls 
very very cute indeed .

 pages 9 and 10 
old rusty treasures found in the Adelaide Hills .

 pages 11 and 12
creating some journaling of my thoughts and faves  
pages 13 and 14 
 Final pages featuring me,
 at my faithful Bernina sewing machine 
Sadly my machine has not seen any fabric for a few years now !!!
I hope you are inspired to look at this kit and create your own journal 
for generations to come 
history is lost unless we create art journals and pages
to share with our family and friends 
thanks for popping by and until we meet again 
happy scrapping 
and stay safe and happy x
