I have been working on junk journals. Some of them I recycled old book covers, like I did with the 'Love and Peace' journal here. I used for the cover an old cabinet photo I brought of two sisters and there is an old doiley underneath with actual tatting. I added some sort of Queen Anne's lace looking glittery sticker flowers and the words love and peace. I also added a owl charm from my stash. The journal is very soft and vintage modern I think.
The plates on our kitchen shelves are like the journal old and new. They sit well together.
