Garden Book

So what do you do with collage sheet left over bits? I took them and made this little journal book that I purchased from the dollar store. I took out three pages for every three I glued, since the paper was rather flimsy. All my images came from Ten Two Studios. The cover images are from Edwardian Beauties Rounds, Victorian Garden Rounds and Secret Garden Microscope Slides that I cut to fit the space.
The pink page came from the Pink themed collage sheet and more Victorian Garden Rounds. The page right below is from the Ocean Voyage collage sheet. All the fussy cutting is from a William Morris gift wrap paper.

The "maids in a row" are from the Edwardian Beauties rounds. The garden gate below is from the pink page collage sheet, along with some other William Morris paper.

The page with the butterflies have small butterflies from the Secret Garden Microscope slides. The large ones are from a book about bugs I have been cutting out of. The foreground boats are from the Ocean Voyage collage sheet. The ships in the back ground are from some papers I purchased from Flax art store in San Francisco.

This page is from the Little Purple Things collage sheet along with some Secret Garden microscope slide cut down to fit the area also. I also included some more of the William Morris papers.

This page is from the Yellow collage sheet along with Secret Garden microscope slide and tags have the yellow faux postage like the one on the pocket.

The last page has images from the Romance tags, Little Men, Little Purple things and White Wedding collage sheet.
