Another junk journal spread.

  I wanted to share what I was doing with my pages of upcycled cardboard with my friends at the UK Stampers Network. So I used this spread ...

Leigh's Gothic Valentine Blog Hop Post #2

I am pleased to once again join in one of Leigh's Hops:

Leigh's "Gothic Valentine"
5th Annual Blog Hop
February 13 - 16, 2022

This is my Day #2 Post!

As usual I will try to re-post something from before and post something new each day...

Here are some ATCs from before:

 The first use some of Leigh's sentiments - find them here - combined with Leigh's background Raggedy Heart Strings and added colour with Copics.

The last ATC is basically a scrap of paper from my stash with a skeleton on acetate - I found this skeleton in my Mum's sideboard!

Today I am sharing more ATCs - using Leigh's sentiment as above, the balloons and the Gothic Skull Roses background

I printed the background image on both white and a patterned paper.
I painted these with shimmery water colour.
I trimmed these to size and added them to black card blanks.
I added the balloons and sentiments to four of the backgrounds and then added white penwork.

Using these and yesterday's ATCs I selected 9 to form a pocket letter.

I will add my today's make to the linky

Happy Crafting!
