It has been a long, long time since my last post. Have been doing all types of crafts, but just haven't found the time to post them. When Gingersnap Creations challenged us to use a typewriter, I had a few to chose from, but this one is my favorite.

This is an altered notebook which tells its own story. Used papers that I picked up at Joanns and the typewriters are rub ons that were purchased at Michaels, from their $1 bins which have had a price increase to $1.50, inflation is the pits, LOL!

The edges of the book and all the papers were distressed using a sponge and ink. The brown background was solid paper, I used a gold gel pen and started to journal.

The sketch is from a Mojo Monday, from awhile back. For inspiration purposes I make a copy of sketches and have them in a folder so I can go back and pull from these ideas. Twenty different notebooks were completed this way before Christmas and each one was unique.

Thanks for stopping by, and being supportive.

  7. Wow, Suzie, this is wonderful! I love how you've incorporated typewriters and a fab sentiment, and that hand written journaling "patterned paper" is awesome. And seriously, 20 journals??? What lucky friends and family you have! ;) Thanks for playing along at Gingersnap Creations.
