More From Silver Bella Swap Heaven

Do you remember when I worked on all those pages for the Silver Bella Souvenir Journal Swap -- 15 sets of four pages each=60 pages?  I blogged about it here.  Here's a few photos of the pages I made; they all had as a base the ledger pages from an 1858 journal, and I used all antique and vintage originals, with a very few exceptions.  I put a different embellished tag in each set of pages, so the recipient would know who did them.















I shipped these off to the talented Jill Sibbald, and she went above and beyond when she presented us each with these journals, in this shiny packaging:
 My journal literally took my breath away.  It is beyond beautiful.  It is ephemera heaven.  Every single woman who participated in this swap is a talented paper artist.  Prepare to be dazzled!:

















This is just a small, small sampling of the pages, but you get the idea, right?  Heaven!

Oh, thanks for posting these! One of the most delightful aspects of Silver Bella for me has been all of the inspiration I've received from so many talented paper artists. Since paper art is not my "mother tongue" (I'm much more fluent in fiber arts :-)), I find myself studying and studying these amazing paper creations and I'm getting tons of great ideas. Thanks, again, for taking time to post these!

Laurie,
You did an absolutely wonderful job on these. I don't know anyone who did as many swaps as you. Donna was so happy with her treats from you. I wish I was your swap partner!
Hugs,
Suz

Thank you so much for sharing this! So many talented women! My New Year's project is to complete my own SB journal using all my Junque Journal swap materials, and this will certainly provide inspiration.
