Bird ATC Tutorial

Artist Trading Cards (ATC) is a great way to try out a technique and to have on hand to trade with other artists. Today I’m sharing a Bird ATC Tutorial. Think of these ATC’s as a mini work of art. There is no wrong way to decorate an ATC, The only rule is the size 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Any medium can be used to create ATC’s today I’m showing how to use stamps and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Supplies used for the Bird ATC Tutorial.

For this Bird ATC Tutorial, I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 2.25 x 3.25 inches. Using the Stamp Platform arrange the stamps and use the door of the platform to pick up the stamps.

Ink the stamps with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink and stamp card. Reapply ink if you didn’t get a good impression and stamp until you like the image on your card.

Then stamp the sentiment with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink. Stamp background with Distress Ink – Tea Dye.

Distress the edges of the card with the thread cutter or a distressing tool. Then using the Ranger Blending tool dipped into the Red Chillies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists apply around the edge of the card.

Spray Red Chillies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the white flower. Turn the flower over if you want to get full coverage on both sides. Dry with a heat tool or let air dry.

Bird ATC Tutorial

Apply Vintage Photo Distress ink to the Kraft ATC card edges with a Blending Tool.

Adhere the stamped card on the kraft ATC base with the Best Glue Ever.

Cut a piece of eyelash yarn and adhere with the Best Glue Ever. Add the flower on top of the eyelash yarn. The ATC is finished. If you are going to use this as a trading card then you can sign the back with your name, date made and any other information you want to share. I plan to pop this into a junk journal as another journal card.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this project and enjoyed the Bird ATC Tutorial.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Since I had a stack of stamps handy and some paper I thought I would share another stamping project. The result: Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial using various rubber stamps, vintage book pages, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, sewing machine and the Stamp Platform from Tim Holtz. These are super quick and easy to make!

Here is the video for the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Supply list for the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to distress paper is so easy. I like it a lot better than coffee dying paper. When I do a session of dying paper with coffee I tend to make a lot and then I have to find a place to store the papers. By using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist I can choose to make the cards when I want them and I don’t have to store dyed papers. I can change up the colors and make them any way I want.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Having the Stamp Platform by Tim Holtz makes this project so easy. I love using stamps and with the creation of clear mounted stamps, it is easy to load up a bunch of these stamps to make cool journal cards.

Test your stamps to make sure they are all the same thickness when mixing stamps from other stamp sets.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

I will place a card that I want to use in the stamp platform. Then arrange the stamps on the card, close the lid to the stamp platform so that the stamps will be picked up on the door. Make sure to use the magnets to keep your paper in place. Ink with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven as many times as necessary.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Mix up the surface of your journal cards, use plain cardstock and add some dictionary pages to others. If you have a sewing machine that is another touch that can be added. Sew a design around the edges.

Have fun using those rubber stamps and I hope you enjoyed seeing the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial today.

Stamped Altered Paperclip

Continuing with sharing how to use stamps in your journal cards, thanks to Naomi from FJJP for this prompt. Today I’m sharing a Stamped Altered Paperclip. Using book pages, stamps, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Distress Ink, Brutus Monroe Detail ink and ScraPerfect Best Glue ever I show how to make a super easy Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Stamped Altered Paperclip

Video Tutorial for the Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Supply List for the Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Since I already had the supplies gathered from making Stamped Journal Cards it was easy to begin making the Stamped Altered Paperclip. Using a page out of an old dictionary I cut it down to the size I want the top of the Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists became the ink for a block stamp that was applied to the dictionary page. Stamp the Bird in Brutus Monroe Detail Ink. Apply distress ink to the flower image and stamp on the dictionary page. Use Brutus Monroe Detail ink and stamp the postmark. Adhere the dictionary page to a scrap of cardstock to help make this sturdy as it will become a pocket.

Stamped Altered Paperclip

Fold the book page in half and half again. This is the base for the Stamped Altered Paperclip. Apply the Best Glue Ever on the first fold. Add a paperclip to the top of the page and glue shut.

Place the dictionary page pocket on the folded book page, adhering three sides leaving one side open for a journal card. Apply Best Glue Ever to the word after it has been distressed. Tuck the journal card into the pocket. An alternate look is to sew around the dictionary page before placing it on the book page base.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

It is Tea Time. Today I’m sharing a new junk journal that I just love. The Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal, features Calico Collage Digital Journal Kit Tea Soiree, Canvas from Canvas Corp Brands and Tulip Dimensional Paint applied using the ScraPerfect Medium No Clog Writing Cap and scraps of fabric and lace from my stash.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

Making the Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal was so much fun! This was one of those use up your stash projects. Digging through the scrap fabric stash was fun- some of the fabric was given to me and some was from grab bags at my quilt guild.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

It has been a while since I printed on fabric and I knew it would be perfect for this journal. For this Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal, I printed several images to be used in this journal. My method of printing on fabric is to use muslin ironed to freezer paper, then cut to 8.5 x 11 inches. Then print the images using an INKJET printer. DON’T USE A LASER PRINTER. Remove the freezer paper backing gently, cut images and use as desired.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

The cover of the Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal is CANVAS (I kept saying muslin in the video – silly me) that I have sewed scraps of fabric and lace on top.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

When closed the Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal measures 6.5 inches wide by 9.5 inches tall and has 52 pages.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

The lace look stencil is one I made using my Cricut Air Explore. Then using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I added a touch here and there with the stencil.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

Some of the pages are my version of Frankenpages. Using pages out of a few old dictionaries sewed onto a piece of copy paper. The dictionary pages were very thin and I wanted a good foundation.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal

The pink pages inside the Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal feature the Lace Stencil, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Rubber Stamping using Brutus Monroe Detail Ink.

Canvas from CCB was used as a base for a couple of the pages inside the Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal. Journal cards are stuck in a side pocket.

Tulip Dimensional Glitter Paint was applied using the ScraPerfect Medium No Clog Writing Cap. The Cap has a very fine point and works perfectly with the Tulip Glitter Paint.

My neighbor is moving and as a result, she cleared out her sewing room. In her pile, she gave me several old patterns and I used some of the paper on journal cards.

The words were created inside the Silhouette design software then printed on either cardstock or fabric using an inkjet printer. There is a tutorial on how I made this page.

Tea Soiree Fabric Junk Journal Tea Soiree Fabric Junk JournalEven though this journal as a soft fabric cover and a few fabric pages it lays flat. Having the journal lay flat makes it easier to write inside.

Fabric Lace and Paper Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Wanting to challenge myself I decided to use a variety of items to make a junk journal page. The result was a Fabric Lace and Paper Junk Journal Page Tutorial.

Supply List for the Fabric Lace and Paper Junk Journal Page Tutorial

This Fabric Lace and Paper Junk Journal Page Tutorial can be broken up into two pages. I decided that I wanted to have the fabric on one side and the Calico Collage Image on paper for the other side. But these could each be their own page designs.

Fabric Lace and Paper Junk Journal Page Tutorial

One of the things I loved about making this project was I got to use scraps of fabric that to some would be trash. Since I used them all over the page it gives it a beautiful vintage touch.

Fabric Lace and Paper Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Being able to sew paper is so much fun. It adds another detail that you can’t get unless you sew on paper.

Layering fabric, lace, and paper make me smile. Making Junk Journals is a great way for me to do a variety of techniques and get to us a variety of materials.

The way the lace looks peaking behind the roses is so beautiful. I’m thankful to my neighbor who is moving that gave me a box of lace. Thank you, neighbor.

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!

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.

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.

Stamped Journal Cards Stamped Journal CardsStamped Journal CardsStamped Journal Cards

Stamp the bird image with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink over the square of color on the dictionary page.

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