The Art of Hidden Journalling from CTMH

March 29, 2015

Welcome back

Keeping with the scapbooking theme here is a layout that I have done with some hidden journalling.  I prefer to hide my journalling, as for me it seems to take away from my artwork.  I have taken my inspiration from the layout in the Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 pattern 08.

Here is my layout using the Chalk It Up B&T papers, Complements and Assortments as well as the Artfully Sent Cartridge and Artbooking Cartridge.

CTMH Chalk it Up layout

I love the envelope that looks like a satchel and used my Artfully Sent cartridge to make the envelope.  I cut three different images – two the same size using Desert Sand cardstock and the herringbone paper and another one in the herringbone pattern that I used CCR to make a little smaller.   Unfortunately, I did not take any photos of the work in progress but I had to have the front in the herringbone pattern so I trimmed the top of it off the paper just before it folded over then adhered the herringbone paper image onto the Desert Sand image. I then put the smaller herringbone image on the top of the Desert Sand image and turned it over to create the satchel.  I then used Desert Sand trims to create the straps and finished off with the black sparkles from the Sparkles Black and Grey Assortments.

Here is the journalling inside the bag.  The little hook and loop dots are so useful for closing this little envelope/satchel.
