Initially, I labored on a collage, all influenced by this stunning British postage stamp.

What a winter season magnificence!

I wished to clearly show you specifically how I place this collage with each other, layer by layer. It took me various times for me to gather all the ideal items and place every little thing. Prior to I glued it down, I turned on the digicam and recorded my procedure of paper deciding upon and placement. Listed here is the video clip:

Upcoming, I received to work on a junk journaling challenge known as , sponsored by Megjournals. My prompt was “throwback”, and so I created a paper wallet, along with a classic influenced ATC (artist trade card).
