Gel Press Play Time

Getting to go to Creativation 2018 in Phoenix AZ I got to attend a Gel Press workshop. This caused me to come home for some Gel Press Play Time and I thought I would share what I created. It wasn’t a planned project, just playing with Tattered Angels DIY Paint, Glimmer Mist and Ken Olivers Color Bursts.

Gel Press Play Time

The Gel Press is a cool tool to use for creating new pages out of old pages. I like the idea of covering up text on a book page. It gives it a new purpose. After a Gel Press Play Time, these papers can be used in journals and even written upon. I like how the thin layer of paints and sprays changes the paper and dries quickly.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

Supplies used in this Gel Press Play Time session.

  • 5 x 7 Gel Press plate – I picked on up in Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon.
  • DIY paint from Tattered Angels, Sterling, and Cerelcan
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Precious Metal, Tea Cup and Turquoise Blue
  • Ken Oliver’s Color Bursts
  • Bubble Wrap I had two sizes. These are great to save from packages
  • Shelf liner the bumpy kind – I found some at Tuesday Morning, but this could also be found at a dollar store.
  • old gift card or room key card
  • Book pages
  • Paint brushes or popsicle sticks to get the paint out of the jar.
  • Imagination

Here is a video of my Gel Press Play Time session.

My method of Gel Press Play Time was to lay out the gel press and apply paint. I started with the Tattered Angels DIY paint in Sterling and used bubble wrap to add some texture. Take a look around the house, you have lots of things that can be used for texture on a Gel Press.

Using the Ken Oliver Color Bursts on the plate is a lot of fun. You never know what it will do and spraying it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists just adds another layer of yummy color.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

Press paper to the paint on the Gel Press, smooth with hands or a brayer, then pick up the paper. Each print will be different, but you can use the same colors to have a pack of papers for a project. Fun to have some matching papers to play with.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

When done playing you can clean the Gel Press by adding a layer of paint and pressing paper to it and leaving overnight. Or you can wash with water or even just wipe down with baby wipes. Just be gentle with the Gel Press so you don’t cut the surface. Put it back in the clamshell case without the plastic sheets and it will be ready to use later.

Gel Press Play Time

Sometimes you just need to sit and play. There is no plan but to have fun and try new things. Who knows maybe your Gel Press Play Time session can turn into some beautiful art.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Getting ready for Creativation 2018 in Pheonix AZ, are you? I was asked to make a few junk journals for the Canvas Corp Brands booth that includes 7gpysies and Tattered Angels. I came up with a 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal that I’m in love with and don’t want to let go of for the show. lol I do hope to get it back.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Supplies used in the 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

When I got this paper collection in front of me I decided I really wanted to use as much as possible and not add other products from other companies if I could help it. I believe that I have achieved this goal.

Here is a flip through video of this 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal.

I began by cutting the papers 8 inches tall by 12 inches wide. Saving one of the papers for the cover and the others to become pages.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Next, I selected three pieces of burlap to make pages and used the 4-inch pieces that were cut off of the cardstock papers to make pockets on the burlap.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Sewing canvas, paper, fabric, and burlap was a lot of fun. I love the look it gives this journal. One of my friends said it looked tattered, old and junky. Well, that was my goal! lol

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Trying new things in each project helps me grow as an artist. Today it was making a page out of burlap. What new thing have you tried lately in your creative play?

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. Then cut down to 5 x 5.5 inch pieces.

I really love how these Mixed Media Crazy Pages turned out! There will be more I will be making! Soon I’ll 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.

Decorating a Guest Check 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.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Another custom order to share with you today. It is a Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal made for Carrie, one of the members of the Friendly Junk Journal People. She asked me to make a custom Planner Junk Journal when she saw my Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Once Carrie gave me a list of themes she liked I knew what I wanted to do. Make a Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal. These seemed to go together – flying things and birds could eat dragonflies. lol

The following Digital Journal kits from Calico Collage were used. Song Bird and Dragonfly Delight. I created homemade stencils to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Lots of stamps from my stash were used as well.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

Flip through video of the Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal.

One of my friends gave me a 2017 Happy Planner in August. She picked up this planner on clearance and didn’t realize that it only had one month left before it was out of date. Knowing that I make Junk Journals she gave the planner to me to use.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

These pages were great foundations to add other elements and I did so by adding notebook paper to one side and painted paper to the other. This created four pockets on the page to use.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

One day I picked up a stamp set with months and numbers and I knew it would be perfect for a Tab paper punch I have had for years and I was right! The stamps are the perfect size to fit on the tabs so I created two sets one for the pages the other for the Monthly Calendar Journal cards.

Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal

For the cover of this Bird Dragonfly Planner Junk Journal, I used fabric I picked up that I thought would be perfect for Carrie. There are lots of positive phrases and beautiful images all over the fabric. It matched perfectly to the Song Bird and Dragonfly Delight digital images.

Making a custom Junk Journal is fun and a challenge. Getting the themes and colors that a customer wants can sometimes be a challenge but so far I’ve been very lucky that the custom orders so far have been super fun to make.

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.

Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

With the end of 2017 it is time to get a new planner for 2018 and I decided to make one. Sharing a Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. This Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal is made using Digital Images from Calico Collage – Dragonfly Delight. A Dollar Tree planner, bullet journal and monthly dividers from a 2017 Happy Planner.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Collecting a few of the following for this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Here is a video Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

To make this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal I began with taking apart the bullet journal. This is where a Xacto knife comes in handy. When you locate the start of the signature it is easy to pull the book apart.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Next, take the staple out of the Dollar Tree Planner. Then cut the pages down the spine because this was a one signature book and the pages need to be broken up into a three signature book.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Composition book pages are sewn to the calendar side of the Happy Planner monthly tabs. The top and bottom are sewn down and that makes pockets on each page.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

When printing the Calico Collage Dragonfly Delight pages I print lines on the back side. Then use the handmade dragonfly stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the back side of the pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

While the stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are out, apply to the bullet journal pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Use Distress Inks to stamp Dragonflies and quotes on the pages. I like how it adds another element to each page.

Acrylic paint was applied to the book pages with an old credit card. When the paint is spread thin with the card it allows the words to be faintly seen in the background. Stamp with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and sprinkle with Brutus Monroe Gold embossing powder heat set.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

These new painted book pages were then folded on one side then sewn with a zigzag stitch. Now, these are new pockets for the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk JournalDragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Group the pages together. Paying attention to where the monthly tabs and the weekly planner pages fall in the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Once all the pages have been arranged it is time to attach the planner pages. Using Washi tape either attach to a journal page or to a corresponding planner page. These new pages will then rest in the journal and can be bound to the cover.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Making the cover is something I really enjoy. It makes me feel happy that this journal is almost complete. When the signatures are applied I will sometimes pet the journal. It makes me so happy.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

As I sit and admire my journal it fills me with joy. This is MY Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. I get to use this for the next year. Hopefully, I will enjoy every day I get to write inside.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a Mermaid Planner Junk Journal for a friend. She wanted this as a gift for a dear friend of hers. After asking a few questions I had an idea of how I would make this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I began the task.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Here is a list of a few of the items used in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Flip through video of the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal.

Once I had all the items selected for the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal it went together quickly. First I created a stencil using my Cricut, a seaweed image, and transparency film.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

Lately, I’ve found that I really like making a stencil to match the theme of the junk journal I’m working inside. While looking around for stencil material I remembered I had a box of write on, wipe off transparency film. To me, this was the perfect material to use inside my cutter and I was right. I had to adjust the blade settings but once I figured out how to get it set things worked great.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

The planner from Dollar Tree was a great help in this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal too. I wanted her to have space to write details or appointments and when I found this planner I knew it would work great inside the Mermaid Planner Junk Journal. Since there are over 200 pages inside she will have lots of room to write.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

The fabric on this cover was a remnant I picked up a while back. There was just enough for the cover of one junk journal and I knew I wanted to use it for this one.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

When the fabric was applied to the cover I decided that it needed more glam. That is when I used my fingers to spread around some Tulip Dimensional glitter paint. The glitter in this paint really helped to make this cover beautiful.

Mermaid Planner Junk Journal Mermaid Planner Junk Journal

I enjoy making custom junk journals and this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal was no different. It was fun to see how I could add the planner part into the junk journal and I think I succeeded. My friend was very happy with this Mermaid Planner Junk Journal and I hope that the person she gave it to loves it and will use the planner. 🙂
