Torn Memories (PaperArtsy Topic #18)

Hello
It is a great honour to be over at PaperArtsy this evening, sharing a project for Topic #18  Torn, Ripped, Burnt. I always enjoy my time with PaperArtsy and this was no different,
I was in my element with this project.  This is a sneaky peek of what is quite a large project, at least in length.  PaperArtsy VID was the most perfectly suited stamp set, I took one look at the stamp which I chose as my focal image and immediately I heard her story that she was whispering to me.

Thinking Outside The Cardboard Box (Greencraft)

Hello
In the Autumn 2017 issue of Greencraft magazine, one of the articles I had published is a trio of notebooks.
Greencraft magazine is as you’d might guess, a publication focusing on re-cycling, re-using, re-purposing, a Green life.  One of the items that I re-cycle the most is cardboard, of any nature whether mailing boxes or cardboard food packaging.

PaperArtsy Fresco Finish in Antarctic was used on the corrugated cardboard which I reclaimed from a mailing box. I intentionally aimed for a distressed appearance although it is easy to achieve the corrugation without a distressed effect if that is what you prefer.

I wanted a simple aesthetic to the notebooks, stamping PaperArtsy ESN onto brown paper, re-cycled brown packing paper.

There is a slight variation to each notebook, with this cover wrapping around to the front with the button serving the purpose of wrapping the cord around to close the notebook.

Just to show that the inside of the journals is also “Green” – re-cycled brown packing paper.  You can see, I like to layer various lengths, with town edges, it brings a nice textural quality.

This is the inside of the Story of Me journal, again, re-cycled brown packing paper.

It’s not only fun, it is rewarding to take items that are found and what many would place in the re-cycle bin, transforming into the simplest of notebooks/journals.  I like them for lists, etc, everyday type of note making and once filled, they can then be disposed of but at least in the meantime, I’ve had some crafting fun making something with a purpose and the paper and cardboard packing box has not immediately made a journey to the re-cycle bin.
Hope you are all having a lovely start to this new month.
