Victorian shabby chic journal photos

Since I have lots of time during this lockdown I found myself fussy cutting out little Victorian children from a vintage book of Victorian history.  That inspired me to make this shabby chic journal filled with Victorian children, lace, ribbons and crystals.   There are also some Graphic 45 Ladies’ Diary paper and tags inside.  Here are some photos from it.  It is for sale in my etsy store.

French paper kit from Paris

One of the joys of traveling and pet sitting is going to places I have always wanted to see.  Last year , at the end of pet sitting we got to spend 6 days in Paris on our way home.  There are such charming and interesting flea markets in the city.  I found these remarkable French book pages and postage stamps there. Here are 2 of my travel journals that I used these papers to make.blueparis 3silverParis 4French paper kit 6I brought them home with me and have been using them to make my own travel and art journals but there are too many for me to use.  So I thought I would put together a kit of French papers and ephemera to share and sell in my Etsy shop.  French paper kit 1 Here is the kit and it is filled with over 22 pages of vintage French book pages and other items from my French collection.  I hope it will inspire my creative friends to add a flavor of Paris to their journals or work.French paper kit 2French paper kit 3French paper kit 7French paper kitIf you are interested in this kit please see my Etsy store : https://www.etsy.com/shop/LDphotography.    Here is the addy for this listing; https://www.etsy.com/listing/673084840/french-paper-kit-junk-journal-vintage?ref=shop_home_active_1
