Welcome to our regular featured artist post. Today I'd like to share Fiona's story with you. Fiona is a very active member on the Junk Journal Junkies group and has shared some wonderful junk journals with us.
A girlfriend first introduced Fiona to the fabulous craft/hobby of scrapbooking around 2007. She was ill at the time and wanted to start creating memories for the kids to keep...something they could always cherish and look back on with fond memories.
Fiona began making journals about 12 months ago. She says she has made more for other people, than for herself. But she hopes to make one for each of her 4 children and use them as scrapbook journals.
Fiona is a huge Jane Austen fan and loves the Regency Era. She also makes Regency Era Stove Pipe and Soft Poke bonnets. Crafting to her, is a way of expressing herself as the person 'Fiona', so her children will know who she was, not just the mother, wife, friend, sister they see her as on a daily basis...leaving behind a footprint has become very important to her.
Below there are some photos of one of Fiona's favourite junk journal projects and her Regency Era Stove Pipe and Soft Poke bonnets. You can find more of Fiona's gorgeous work on her youtube channel here
