Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

Using the mixed media pages I made for the Mixed Media Frankenpages a few weeks ago and other supplies, I show how to make a Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal measuring 5.25 x 4 inches in size with 8 pages and a few journal cards. Also featured are a few images from Calico Collage Day Dreaming digital journal kit. The images in this kit are beautiful, some remind me of an old English Garden.

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

In the video, I show how to make the Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal.

Supplies used for the Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

Once the Frankenpages are created it is easy to make a Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal. Since I knew the Franeknpages were 8 x 10.5 the measurements of the Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal would be 4 x 5.25. The pages inside would be slightly smaller.

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

The pages I created were from old book pages and I used the same method as the Mixed Media Frankenpages to create the pages but didn’t use copy paper as the base, but another mixed media Frankenpage. There are three Mixed Media Frankenpages that make this journal with a total of 8 pages.

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

A tool I used for creating the Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal was the gluing helper. There are many versions on the web, mine was a small little container that I cut kitchen sponges to fit (three layers of sponge). Added water and glue and let it sit overnight. I add glue every time I’m done using it so that it will be ready for the next time.

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

For the images, I used Calico Collage Day Dreaming Digital journal kit. On the computer, I told it to print the corner elements page at 5 x 7 and that gave it the perfect size to fit inside this Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal.

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

ScraPerfect’s products really do come in handy when assembling this Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal. The No Clog Writing Tip helps to add a touch of sparkle with Tulip Dimensional Paint. The small tip on the Best Glue Ever helps to get just the perfect amount of glue for the project.

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

Embellie Gellie is a wonderful tool to help with perfect placement of small items. It is easy to use to add flatback rhinestones or little punched shapes

Mini Frankenpages Junk Journal

One of the reasons I love Junk Journals is because I can do anything I like. If I want to do mixed media I can. Or if I’m in a vintage mood I can make it very vintage. There are no rules in making junk journals. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

One of my good friends Betz Golden came up with the idea of using retro art supplies from before 2008. This prompted us to do a blog hop and mine is Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards. It was fun looking through my stash to find items that I knew were from before 2008 (more than ten years old) for this project.

Here is my video tutorial showing the Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards.

Supply list for the Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

Once I had the supply list it was time to figure out what was going to make and I decided to make ATC journal cards for the Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards blog hop.

Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards

First I cut the red cardstock down to 2.5 x 3.5 inch. Then I proceeded to cut the pattern paper and white cardstock just slightly smaller than 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

One some of the journal cards I used old dictionary pages, I thought it gave it a vintage feel.

Two heart punches used with Red Glitter Cardstock helped to add a small accent without a lot of bulk.

Creating words on my Silhouette and keeping a stash of these handy helped to make this project go fast. It was easy to add a little word to each one.

There were enough supplies that I made 11 journal cards with the supplies. Making these Remember When Using Retro Art Supplies for Journal Cards was a lot of fun! It has made me want to pull other kits out and see what I can make.

Day Dreaming Junk Journal

Sharing a design team project Day Dreaming Junk Journal, using Calico Collage Digital Journal Kit Day Dreaming. Also used my Mixed Media Frankenpages for the cover and insides that I made a few weeks ago. The journal measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches and has a soft cover made with watercolor paper and mixed media Frankenpages.

Day Dreaming Junk Journal

A flip through video showing the Day Dreaming Junk Journal.

Used the following to make the Day Dreaming Junk Journal.

The Day Dreaming Junk Journal has 16 pages that are tied together with bakers twine. I bound it together like this so that the owner can choose to add more pages if they like or make another journal with the pages and cover.

Day Dreaming Junk Journal

Making this journal was so much fun. I loved using the Mixed Media Frankenpages with the Calico Collage Digital Images.  The bright colors make me very happy.

Adding the Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint using the ScraPerfect No Clog Writing Cap to the Day Dreaming Junk Journal added the perfect amount of sparkle. The glitter paint also adds a little bit of texture.

The back sides of the Day Dreaming Journal pages were sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists with one of my stencils.

Adding touches of fabric to the pages gives this journal a little bit of a shabby chic look, don’t you think?

Stamped Journal Cards

A few days ago I was chatting with one of the admins from my Facebook group Friendly Junk Journal People. Naomi asked for ideas on how to use stamps with a junk journal. This prompted me to make a Stamped Journal Cards tutorial showing how stamps can be used to make journal cards without a lot of coloring. She didn’t want to spend a lot of time coloring in images.

Stamped Journal Cards

Here is a video tutorial showing how to make Stamped Journal Cards.

Supply List for Stamped Journal Cards.

Stamped Journal Cards

These stamped journal cards are super easy to make. To begin I chose to cut a piece of the dictionary page the same size as my focal stamped image. In this case, it was 2.25 x 2.25 inches. Then I stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink.

Stamped Journal CardsStamped Journal Cards

Use the Ranger Blending tool and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the paper.

Stamped Journal Cards

Apply a fine line of the Best Glue Ever on the backside of the dictionary page and apply to a 3 x 5 inch journal card.

Stamped Journal Cards

An option is to use a sewing machine and add zig-zag stitches around the image.

Stamped Journal Cards

For the second card, I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Curious applied to a square stamp background. This was stamped on a 3.5 x 5.5 piece of dictionary page. Heat set to dry.

Apply Dusty Concord and Crushed Oliver Distress Inks to the flower stamp and stamp on the right side of the square.

Distress the words – Adventure Awaits with Vintage photo distress inks.

Cut a scrap of denim to be a mat for the word and adhere both on the journal card in the center bottom.

Can take it up a notch by sewing on the journal card. I like combining the zig-zag with straight stitching.

Frankenpage Envelope Pocket Tutorial

Today’s post is sharing what I made with some of my Mixed Media Frankenpages. The result was a Frankenpage Envelope Pocket Tutorial to show you how I used the pages. This is one of those fun projects where you can use some old book pages and add some paint and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Adding digital images from Calico Collage Day Dreaming journal kit just adds a beautiful touch.

The supplies used in this Frankenpage Envelope Pocket Tutorial.

Frankenpage Envelope Pocket Tutorial

When I made the Mixed Media Frankenpages these were trimmed to 8 x 10.5 inches. Then I sewed the joins on the paper but not around the outside edge. Next, I cut the page in half lengthwise to make a 4 x 10.5 inch page.

Then cut a two inch piece from one end and a three and a half inch piece. You will now have three pieces to use for this envelope pocket.

Sew around the edges to finish the piece. Sew the pieces together and you now have an envelope pocket.

Using ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever attach the embellishments to finish the Frankenpage Envelope Pocket.

Use Embellie Gellie for perfect placement of small items.

Mixed Media Frankenpages

Today I’m sharing my version of Mixed Media Frankenpages. I’ve been making mixed media collages for years and this is a great way to use up scraps of paper. In today’s project, I share how to use old book pages and mixed media to make some Mixed Media Frankenpages. Making these pages is also therapeutic. There is something about gluing papers together that just makes me so happy.

What I really love about this project is it is just fun. It is fun to see how the acrylic paint and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists will react on the book pages.

Creative Mixed Media Play

Whenever I’m in a creative slump I try some Creative Mixed Media Play. It is a great way to just play and not think about what you are doing. The idea is to just let things come together, enjoy the process and play. Don’t like the last layer, add another with paint, stencils, stampings or Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Keep playing as long as you like, never worrying about what you will do with the finished items.

Creative Mixed Media Play

Here is a tutorial video showing my Creative Mixed Media Play session.

Now doesn’t that look like a lot of fun! Can you see how just pulling items you already have to play can help you with a creative block?

Creative Mixed Media Play

Supplies used for the Creative Mixed Media Play session.

The method of a Creative Mixed Media Play session is very simple. PLAY. For my play session, I decided to use old business cards as the base to paint. Attaching eight cards together with washi tape is a great way to work on multiple cards at one time as one unit.

Creative Mixed Media Play

Apply layers and let them dry or manually dry each layer. I found that I like to work one layer at a time.

This is Creative Mixed Media Play, it is okay to mix different mediums. In my project I used, paper, paint, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Stamping, and stencils. You may choose to use layers of paper and some paint. It is okay to use what you have and just have fun.

These little cards will be fun to use in other projects. I’ll use some to make embellishments, journal cards or even just accents in a junk journal.

Creative Mixed Media Play

Take time to play today. Do some Creative Mixed Media Play and see where it leads. Most important is to have fun.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

It is with great pleasure that I share the Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal. In January while at Creativation 2018 a few of us met up and discussed having a swap and YouTube Video hop. The final decision was to have a Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Theme. Each artist would make a 4 x 6 postcard with any mixed media they wanted and mail to the other artists.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

In this swap, there are three other ladies who participated. Check out the other Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime ladies social media.

When I got the postcards from the other ladies I decided that I would make a Junk Journal just for these postcards. Here is the video showing How I made my postcards and then the Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal.

Supplies Used for my postcards.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

Playing with a Gel Press is so much fun. There are so many things that can be done. Lots of layers, single layers, lots of texture or little texture. It is all about whatever you want at the time.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

I love how vivid the colors are on the postcards I created for the ladies. Green just spoke spring to me and that is why I used it with the blue.

Having the inspiration in seeing someone else’s work really helps me think of ways to use it in my art projects. Seeing the different designs from each artist gives me ideas, helps me appreciate others art and gives me joy.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

Making a mixed media Junk Journal to hold all the postcards was so much fun! I love trying new things and mixed media allows me to play. These are now all in one place and easy to enjoy.

An element I like about this Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal is that I was able to put Mixed Media with Vintage themed elements and I think it turned out amazing.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

Mixing denim, lace, yarn, and paper with the paints and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, gives this a unique look.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

The photos and video don’t do any justice to how beautiful these pages are. The surface is smooth and really feels good in my hands.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

Being able to use the extra postcards I made in this journal was also a plus. Really wasn’t sure what I would do with them until I saw I needed a few more pockets.

Mixed Media Mail Art Collaboration Springtime Junk Journal

Many people ask me about where to find cool things for their junk journals. In this case, it was junk mail given to me by a friend, old book pages, and scraps of fabric and lace. And a few digital images from Calico Collage mixed with some awesome mixed media art by, Lena, Bea, and Shel C. And I think it turned out to be a pretty cool junk journal. How about you?

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Yesterday I shared how to print and cut a few Calico Collage Simply Spring images. Today I’ll show you how to use these items to make Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements. These elements or embellishments can be used for other projects as well – make greeting cards with pockets for the journal cards. There are lots of ways to use these elements.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements Tutorial video.

Supply List for the Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Having all the images cut and ready to use helps to make this project go faster. Once all the images had Vintage Photo Distress Ink added to the edges. Then I cut mats out of various pieces of cardstock from my stash. This is where I like to use up all those old sheets of paper and put them in my die cut and punched shaped box for use in projects.

Print and Cut Digital Images with Silhouette

Using pages out of an old book gives these elements a vintage look. Warning that some books are very brittle, if you use the papers you may need to attach to another piece for stability.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Adding lace to the elements seems to bring a little vintage charm as well. Don’t you agree?

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

Making a journal card with a pocket is also super cute. Great way to use up tiny bits of paper too.

Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements

One of my favorites in this set of Simply Spring Junk Journal Elements is the denim pocket with small journal card. I really like how this turned out. The denim and watercolor paper were leftover items from other projects. Feels good to use these in the project today.
