Vintage Collage Journaling with Darkroom Door Stamps

Hi friends!  I'm very happy to have come across this nearly completed altered journal in my recent art room shuffle.  How could I have forgotten it!  I decided immediately to get a new spread added to it.  I've picked up the most amazing quote stamp by Darkroom Door and in the theme of the journal, picked out a "found relative" to coordinate.  She reminds me much of myself as a girl...

I layered some beautiful vintage ephemera from my friend Madelyn with an envelope mailed to me by my friend Wanda, adding layers of stamping on the base with the Abstract 06 stamp and the Number Medley set.  

I made the strip on the side with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide and the Darkroom Door Spanish Tile stamp (my fav <3).  I cut up leftovers to make faux washi tape for the opposite side of the spread.  I mounted the Quote stamp over the AMAZING new Vintage Label Frame stamp stamped in cherry red.  I'm ever so pleased with this journal thus far and have two more spreads to go, along with the cover art.  Wish me luck!  Since it's been such a while, I thought I would share the previous pages with you...

A spread I made and blogged at Topflight Stamps HERE.

 I shared this spread on the A Vintage Journey blog.

My first spread on posted HERE.  Remember, this was an old address book I found thrifting.

My second spread can be found HERE.

And another spread HERE.  Thanks for looking!  Hugs, Autumn

I so admire your art Autumn - even if I make nothing like it :). Your creativity is such a wonderful gift from God, and to others.

Really, really wonderful!!!! It's so fun that you could use the envelope. I'm going to have to remember that idea. I usually just think of cutting the stamps off.

Beautiful pages. I love the composition on all of them. They inspire me to get into my craft room and use some of my TH stash. Thankyou for your beautiful work.
