Pink Vintage Lady – Experimenting with lace and trims

I’m such a newbie at this lace and trim thing but I really want to get better at it because I’ve seen such stunning journals with fabrics, laces, and trims.

I’m also still experimenting with collaging and different ways to embellish pages.

I used some ephemera from Tim Holtz and a scrapbook paper pad and some vintage pages from happy mail.

I’m too worried about making the journal too chunky so I’ve decided for my next journal I’m going to experiment with fewer pages so I can embellish each one.

Here’s a flip-through:
