Yes, I have to admit that I have a few precious metals in my stash:
I have joined fellow bloggy friends Mel, Amy, Sharyn, Sian, Karen, Kate, Dolly, Scrapchick, and Karen in Shimelle's new class "Something for Almost Nothing" and I can't imagine a better bunch of classmates! There is still time to join us if you are interested in using up some of that scrapbook stash you have tucked in nooks and crannies all over the place!
Our first assignment was to use our precious metals. I've decided not to do the album that goes along with the class, but to use my stash in a new project - My Junque Journal (and probably some miscellaneous layouts along the way that will get filed in my Library of Memories system). I first saw the idea for the Junque Journal over at Enjoy the Ride Today where Kai had posted the start of her own journal, along with a link to Tangie Baxter's YouTube Video that shows what a Junque Journal is - and from there you can watch a couple of other videos on how Tangie put it together. Since I'm already following Tangie this year on the Art Journal Caravan this just seemed like one more fun way to play and a way to put Shimelle's class to good use!
My Junque Journal cover is still a work in progress, but here it is for right now:
The letter "J" is from Tangie's Medieval Faire kit alpha, the rest is "Old English Text" which came with my Word program.
