Making a junk journal that is more masculine than the others can be hard. What theme should be used? Would a man really like this type of journal? Pulling the Rt 66 Digital Journal Kit and some Pin Ups from Calico Collage got the idea for a Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals set. My thoughts were, some men and a few ladies would collect Pin Up girl trading cards or images and they could be traveling on Route 66 to collect these images. Hope you like my idea.

When I first decided to make the Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals I thought I was only going to make one. But with all the beautiful Pin Up Girl images I just had to make four junk journals.
These journals measure 5.5 x 8.0 inches and have 10 sheets folded in half to make 40 pages. The cover is three layers of paper. A brown grocery sack was used along with cardstock and the digital image. There are two pockets on the cover.
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were applied to many of the pages. Some using the Lace Stencil I made and some just with the spray.
Save those old Atlus Maps. I was lucky that my brother found an old city street map book. These make great foundation pages in a junk journal. The corner pocket is from the 7gypsies Gypsy Mixed Media Pad – American Vintage.
Franken pages also appear in these Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals. Using the Tim Holtz pocket die, paper bag from Canvas Corp Brands, Pin Up girl ATC images, burlap, stamps and more to finish the page.
Love pairing the 7gypsies papers with the Calico Collage Digital images. I even stamped an envelope and notecard to match the theme of these Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals.
For the center of the Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals, canvas, denim, stamped images and the Calico Collage domino images were used.
Using ivory cardstock from Canvas Corp Brands and my Cricut I made a mini file folder that was stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven and Terry’s Trains. This is adhered to the page with ScraPerfects Best Glue Ever and has a bakers twine closure.
Each journal has the same elements, but the Pin Up Girl images might vary between the four Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals.
