Book Page Altered Paperclip

I’m always looking for new ways to use book pages from books. Today I’m sharing a Book Page Altered Paperclip. Using the Dragonfly Delight Domino image from Calico Collage, Distress Ink, Aleen’s Tacky Glue, the No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect and more I share how to make a Book Page Altered Paperclip.

Supplies and tools used for making the Book Page Altered Paperclip

After collecting the supplies I created a video showing how I made the Book Page Altered Paperclip.

Isn’t this the cutest altered paperclip? So easy to make and makes a great embellishment for a Junk Journal or to add to a book. Make a lot to give as gifts, pop one inside a card for the recipient to use in their book.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group did a napkin swap a while back. This prompted me to create a Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial to show how to use all those wonderful napkins. This Napkin Junk Journal Page is a great mixed media project, using the napkin, acrylic paint and Tattered Angels Glam and Glimmer Mists.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The supplies used for the Napkin Junk Journal Page.

Once all the supplies were gathered I set up the camera to record the process. Here is the video I made for the Napkin Junk Journal Page.

The one tip that I feel is the most helpful is to use a fresh glue stick and apply it to the paper where you want the napkin to be applied. Go beyond where the napkin will be attached so that the whole edge gets adhered. Glue Sticks dry clear and they don’t leave a tacky residue so don’t worry about getting too much.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Try not to get any glue on the napkin, only on the page you are attaching and go slow to lay the napkin down. Try not to rub the napkin but pat it down lightly and press it onto the paper.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Creating a Napkin Junk Journal Page is a great way to use those beautiful napkins. I love how the napkin becomes one with the journal page and looks like it was printed instead of adhered.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Do you have a large stash of napkins? My stash isn’t huge, but I pick up a few here and there or I get a few as gifts. Hopefully, now I’ve given you another idea of how to use those beautiful napkins.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial Supply list

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial Video.

After collecting the items I attached the two sheets of watercolor paper together with washi tape on the back backside. This made a large sheet I could work on and then cut up later.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Stamp the images with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven. Then adhere torn bits of the Damask Tissue paper and dictionary page.

Using the stencil made on the Cricut Explore Air I used the Chalk sprays to add color to the page.

Next applied the Glam and High Impact paint with some yellow acrylic paint with an old room key card in a random fashion.

Using a couple of stencils and gesso I then added a layer over the whole sheet.

Apply a little watered down glimmer mist or use a spray bottle of water then spray with Electric Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist here and there.

Use PVA to attach the torn napkin all over.

Once this is dry – I used a heat tool to speed up the process. Apply the three different pink acrylic paints to create flowers around the torn napkin pieces. Creating whole new flowers.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Apply Cranberry Zing Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist with a paint brush over the flowers.

Seal the work with Krylon Matte Finish Spray – I took it outside as the fumes are not good to smell.

Then using a Pitt Pen made marks around the flowers to give more definition.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Remove the washi tape from the back and cut the two pages apart. This is then cut down to 5 x 5.5 inch pieces.

I really love how these Mixed Media Crazy Pages turned out! I want to make more! I also hope to show other projects using the scans I made of the pages.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Take time to play with your art supplies. There is no wrong way to enjoy making something beautiful. Try new things and don’t worry about how it turns out. It might look like a hot mess at first, but keep playing and before you know it you have a wonderful work of art.

ANNOUNCEMENT! The artwork has now been included in a digital Junk Journal kit by Calico Collage Called: Linda’s Wisdom.

Tutorial Decorating Notebook paper for Junk Journal Page

When making a junk journal I like to include notebook paper, more space to write. Today I’m sharing a Tutorial Decorating Notebook paper for Junk Journal Page. I’ll be using lots of products, Calico Collage Fairy Garden images, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more. These pages are super easy and fast to make. It’s fun to sit and make several in one session.

Here is a video Tutorial showing my Decorating Notebook paper for Junk Journal Page.

Tip, open up a Composition Notebook to the very center. Some are stitched and others are stapled. Remove the stitching or staples and you will have a very long piece of paper and you can use it with the lines going in the correct direction.

I love creating a stack of pages like this for Junk Journals. It’s very relaxing to spray and stamp on the pages. Adding little bits from the current kit helps tie things together.

Do you like wide ruled or college ruled notebook paper? I think I like the wide ruled so I can write bigger, but if I have a lot to say the college ruled is better.

Tutorial Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

Journal cards are a great way to add more journaling space inside a junk journal. This post includes a Tutorial Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card. Using Rubber Stamps, inks and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I share how to decorate a guest check into a journal card.

Supplies used for Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card.

Video Tutorial Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card.

Decorating a guest check for a journaling card is really simple and fast. Since I had the Rose Post Card stamp it made the design easy. Take a look around for a postcard stamp that you could use for your project. Even a plain postcard image and then overstamped with flowers would look wonderful.

Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

When I learned about the Fantastix I was opened up to another way to color images with ink pads that I own. I love the soft color that comes out from using the Fantastix. These tools work great with the Brutus Monroe Surface ink and the Tim Holtz Distress ink.

Blending the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink really helps give the guest check a vintage feel. It is easy to add a little or a lot to get the look you want.

Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

Once all the coloring has been done I then love using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists over the guest check. The Precious Metal color has a soft pearl color that is very romantic to me.

Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card is a lot of fun. Get a stack and see how you can decorate these for your Junk Journals.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Happy New Year everyone. Today I’m sharing a Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial. This Junk Journal Page is for the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group for a swap.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

The idea is that we all trade pages and then we can use these in our junk journals. The size of the pages are 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch.

Supplies used in making the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

Video Tutorial for the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

This Happy New Year Junk Journal Page is super easy to create. Using a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper that has a light color or print that goes with your theme is helpful.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Using the Fiskars paper trimmer and a stylis score at the 8-inch mark down one side. Rotate the paper and score at 10.5 inches. Fold up the 4 inches at the bottom. Next, fold over the 1.5-inch flap to the smooth side of the paper. On the flap turn the corner of the lower flap down to give a finished edge. Fold the page in half with the 4-inch pocket at the bottom and now on the front of the page.

Now that the page has been folded you can now see where to decorate with stamps and the stencil. Once the page has been stamped and sprayed let it dry for a moment and then added lace to the flap and the pocket. I use a glue stick to hold the lace in place and then sew the lace on my sewing machine.

Adhere the flap and pocket to the page with the Best Glue Ever and set aside.

Assemble the words and numbers, add the rhinestones with the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Jellie. Adding flatback rhinestones to the project was so easy using ScraPerfects, Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Attach the words and 2018 to the page with the Best Glue Ever. Then add the journal cards and tuck spot.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Making one of these junk journal pages is so much easier than trying to plan a whole journal at one time. I find that if I think about one page (it actually creates four pages when added to a journal) it is much easier for me.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

When you are out looking at paper take a look at the die cut sheets. there might be one that would make a great stencil to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Winter Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sharing a Tutorial for a Winter Junk Journal Page made for a swap inside Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook Group. Making these monthly pages are a lot of fun.

Winter Junk Journal Page

The concept is that a page measuring 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch page that can be added to a junk journal. The group decided that it was easier to swap pages than a whole journal. Each person will have pages they can add to a junk journal or they can make one junk journal with all the pages.

Here is a video Tutorial Winter Junk Journal Page.

Items used for this Winter Junk Journal Page

The method for this page is very simple. Choose a page that has an area that can be cut into a pocket. Cut the corner and adhere this piece to scrap of paper. My pages are printed on standard copy paper and I wanted the pocket to be thicker.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Use the Brutus Monroe Surface ink – Sea and the Ranger Blending Tool to add color to the edges of this cut piece.

Adhere the main page with a glue stick to another scrap paper to give a finished backside to the page and to give a foundation where the corner was cut free.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sew lace on the edge of the pocket. Then Sew the pocket on the page. I went ahead and sewed all around the page.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Assemble the page. Prior to the video, I created altered paperclips and journal cards using Calico Collage Simply Winter junk journal kit.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

I like trying new things when making my junk journals. I hope that seeing the Tutorial on this Winter Junk Journal Page has inspired you.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Welcome my friends, today I’m sharing a Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial. This pocket was in the Let it Snow Junk Journal and I made extras for the Simply Winter Junk Journal kits. I thought I would share How I made it so others could make their own Junk Journal Pocket.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Here is a video showing the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

The method used in this Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial is very simple. Take a page out of an old book. I’ve even used books from the Dollar Tree. Fold the book in half from top to bottom. Turn down one corner and adhere in place.

Using a Snowflake Stencil (I made the stencil myself using my Circut and a snowflake image and cut on Transparency film.) Spray with both colors of Tattered Angels Mists.

Once the page is dry (can use a heat tool if necessary) take to the sewing machine. Stitch around the outside edges to add a touch of zig-zag stitches.

Next using the Calico Collage Vintage Holiday charm image, a few punched shapes and some sheet music decorate the pocket. I even used some blue eyelash yarn for cool texture.

To put in the pocket I made a tag using Canvas Corp Brands Canvas an index card and more of the Tattered Angels Mists.

After watching the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial I know you will make a lot of these fun and beautiful pockets.

Tutorial Explore Mini Junk Journal

Today is a Tutorial of an Explore Mini Junk Journal for Day 12 of the Christmas Junk Journal Gift ideas. Doing this series has been fun. I love seeing what Rachel Reid comes up each day.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

For this Tutorial of the Explore Mini Junk Journal, I wanted to keep it simple. Not a lot of fancy tools. As many of the things I did can be done without fancy tools. Scissors, glue, paper, sewing needle, and thread are the basics.

The Supplies and Tools I used today for the Explore Mini Junk Journal.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

Because some people have said they don’t have Glimmer Mists or even Distress Inks I didn’t use any, just opting to have it clean and simple. It also takes less time if you leave out those steps.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

Here is a video of the Tutorial on the Explore Mini Junk Journal.

Pick up a Junk Pack from 7Gypsies today and see what kind of fun junk journal you make. It’s fun to pick up random papers to use in a junk journal. And in this little junk pack are all kinds of cool textures and colors. Enough for making matching elements and few that will make them one of a kind.

Explore Mini Junk Journal

My hope is that you too will make an Explore Mini Junk Journal and enjoy the process.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Hello friends, today is day 10 of the 12 days of Junk Journal Gift Ideas and I’m sharing a Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal. This is a super easy mini junk journal that can be made as a small stocking stuffer or to add to a Christmas Card.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Video Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal.

The method for making this one sheet mini junk journal is very easy. Take the 12 x 12 inch sheet of paper and score at the 3, 6, 9 inch marks, rotate 90 degrees and score at the 3, 6, 9 inch marks. Then slightly crease the page so you can see the sore marks.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Make a cut down the center score mark and stop 3 inches from the edge. Rotate paper 180 degrees and cut the outside two score marks and stop 3 inches from the edge. You will have a zig-zag looking sheet of paper.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Next, fold the paper in an accordion fashion until the pages have been formed. Using the Best Glue ever adhere the pages together. Keeping in mind those pages you want to have pockets, leave the top open to slide a journal card inside.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Once the pages have adhered create the cover using scraps of paper cut to 2.75 inches square. Apply distress inks to the book and cover. Wrap one time around the journal with yarn and tie a bow. This will be the closure. Apply the Best Glue Ever to the cover pieces and adhere to cover over the yarn.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Cut a 1 inch by 3 inch piece of paper to cover the spine of the journal. Adhere using the Best Glue Ever. Once all of the gluing is complete use the Perfect Crafting Pouch to get rid of any sticky areas. Wipe with the Perfect Cleaning Cloth to remove any excess powder.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

Decorate the one sheet mini junk journal to your liking. For mine, I used scraps of book pages, images from Calico Collage Drag and scraps of cardstocks.

Tutorial for a No Sew Junk Journal

The one-sheet mini junk journal has 18 pages including the covers for you to decorate and depending on how you created the pages could have 7 pockets.
