We are having a Spring/Easter Junk Journal Page Swap inside the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group. When I can I like to make items and swap with other members. Today I decided that I would share a Spring Junk Journal Page Tutorial using Calico Collage Digital Images, Flower Elves digital ATC images. In the video I show you all four sizes I printed from the same digital file from Calico Collage.

The swap requirements are the following. The page should measure 8 inches tall by 10.50 inches wide or 5.25 when the page is folded closed. Next, it had to have a pocket/tuck spot and a journal card or tag.
Knowing the requirements helps to get things started. First I selected images from Calico Collage an ATC digital sheet of images. Then I used my computer to crop and print different sizes of the images. The quality of the images allowed me to blow these images up to at least 5 x 7 without losing any of the quality of the image.
Selecting a few of the images I then made elements. Using Distress Inks around the edges of the images and journal cards and then sewing around the edges with a black zig-zag stitch.
Painting on paper gives it a new life. It is one of my favorite things to do, alter the paper to get a different look. When the paper is done it has a great surface that you can write upon.
Assembling the page is pretty easy once all the elements are made. Don’t you think this looks like Spring? It was a lot of fun to put this together. Sure hope my swap partner likes the page I created. 🙂
When I completed the page I had a few elements left over so I decided to make up a small junk journal kit. Ended up that I was able to put 30 items together. Check it out in my store.
