VICTORIAN SEAMSTRESS - FIRST SIGNATURE



This is the first signature of the Victorian Seamstress Digikit from thatsjustpenny. I shall practice the binding on this signature using bookbinding needles and waxed thread.

This is my second junk journal as a Design Team member for thatsjustpenny and I am still having a great time!

As you can see this is a very pretty kit, full of vintage imagery, which I have used for the pages and the tucks which I have filled with cards and mementos. I have added ribbon and flower stickers.











I'll post the binding soon!

I am planning to have 4 signatures altogether.

Victorian Seamstess


This is my thatsjustpenny second kit as a member of the Design Team.
This is a really pretty set of vintage images to make a tiny journal




I've got all sorts of ribbon, fabric and transparent decoupage papers to add to the pages; I want to give lace edgings to the journal



I've even got old embroidery from a charity shop that I will use in my pages





 I've downloaded a lovely floral burgundy paper as a thatsjustpenny site freebie, and changed the hue and added decorative elements from the digikit as extra pieces I can use as pages or collage


So i am really excited to get on with this and I will post videos from my YouTube channel soon

My junk journal using thatsjustpenny digikits is now finished

I used mainly the STEAMPUNK MUSIC OF TIME ZINE JOURNAL with some extras from VINTAGE STEAMPUNK BEAUTIES

and you can see lots of videos on how I put it together on my YouTube channel including making the journal and binding it.

























The binding is a simple
3 hole binding.
The string comes up each outside hole and both ends go down into the centre hole where the ends are tied over at the back to form a lock
