New and old

Hi crafters. This journal page uses new and old things. The book is a 2021 diary/planner I was given, with a purple, embossed, leather cover and gold on the edges of the pages. It is lovely but I don’t write in diaries as they create an extra job to do. But I don’t mind journals, so I turned it into a journal. I have collaged scraps, unused diecuts, old book paper onto this page. It felt good to tidy up the unused bits that seem to accumulate. I applied white gesso and off white paint to the page before adding more texture with a Kaisercraft stencil and some texture paste. There is a little scribbling and some stamping with my new SSS Old letter 1878 stamp. I had fibre and fabric scraps which I glued onto provide a place for some words from a large text book. It was the first time I had used this secondhand book. I randomly opened it and found these words which seem to fit the monochrome theme.
The challenge at Simon says Stamp Monday challenge this week is new/unused. This new, repurposed book is filled with unused bits from the craft room and included using my new stamp.

Who knew tidying up could be so fun?

Thanks for visiting,
