Bringing something "old" back allows ignorant crafters like myself to appreciate its beauty. When I first delved into crafting with Tim Holtz & Sizzix, my collection of dies primarily featured "flat" elements like flowers, animals, labels, etc. I overlooked more dimensional items such as rosettes. With the introduction of the new VAULT COLLECTION 2024, I found myself questioning: How could I have missed out on these for so long?
Now, I'm utterly enamored with rosettes and the endless possibilities they offer when combined with die sets I already own, as well as those from the new release. In this set of cards, I paired the VAULT ROSETTES with the VAULT LOVEBIRDS and the VAULT WILDFLOWERS — and this is just the beginning of what promises to be a never-ending love story.
I also added some vintage buttons from my grandma's stash to my cards. Those match the theme of round elements very well and give a nice additional touch to the neutral color palette.
I made the background for those cards with the WOVEN embossing folder. In combination with the warm browns and the oxidation the cards have some kind of fabric vibe, even if there's no fabric involved, would you agree?
Let's turn a card idea into a Junk Journal! Wait a moment, is that even possible?
I claim, yes! It is!
I mean, we are Junk Journalers, why wouldn't it work?
But... what should we consider? Which components of a card can we directly use for a Junk Journal and which ones not? And most importantly, if I borrowed an idea, how can I turn it into my very own artwork?
