This time last year everything was packed up ready for the shippers and our move to Australia.
This year we are in a rental in Patterson Lakes, Victoria - and are just about to start searching for a more permanent home... We have all suffered the restrictions of Covid but currently Victoria is not bad at all - so we have just come back from a 3 day break in the Grampians - hence my late start.

My plan is to show something old and something new each day...

Today I am re-sharing some of my January pages from my Mixed Media Calendar...


Each year for the last few I have made a January Poe page!
You may remember these versions from previous years.
Some of the images used are Ike's free Poe Raven paper Ike's Poe Raven freebie, Teri Sherman's tombstone (Delicious Doodles), some Smeared Ink real rubber stamps and - of course - Leigh's Oddleigh Edgar Allan Poe , Oddleigh Raven
and other Poe images.

Today I have started a little Poe junk journal. I noticed Nan had found some images from Raiders of the Lost Art. I had a look and spotted the Poe Gothic Junk Journal pages.
I just printed some of these out, trimmed, scored and folded and glued.
This is what I have done so far:

This is the back and front:

This opens to the first two pages - I have added a flap to the first.

This then opens to this:

The right hand side opens outwards to reveal another pocket.

So this is what it has become so far:

I will add this post to the linky!

Happy Crafting!
