Peacock Junk Journal Elements

Been working on Peacock Junk Journal Elements. These are the items that will fill a junk journal as journal spots and tuck spots. I have found that if I sit down and make a bunch of these elements and then begin the junk journal it doesn’t take near as long.

The inspiration to make these elements with a Peacock theme came to me when I found a roll of peacock feather ribbon. I love the glitter on the ribbon and how bright the colors are as well.

There are 28 elements in this pack of Peacock Junk Journal Elements. Here is a video where I share the elements.

When I was at Canvas Corp Brands a couple of months ago I picked up a junk pack that included beautiful flocked paper.  I just knew that these would be perfect inside a junk journal or on greeting cards.

Found a pretty sparkly teal ribbon as well. Pairing the ribbons with the paper came out beautifully.

Using pages out of an old book I made a few tuck spots. One is a layered piece that has a hidden tuck spot built into the ribbon. Used PinkOddBird’s technique of a Potucelope that she shared on YouTube. These are super cute and easy to make. The little notepads came about from scraps from another junk journal element I made a while back. I’m so glad that I save the bits even if others might think they are too small to use.

An investment that I’m glad I made is buying different types of dies so that I could make tuck spots and journal spots with the shapes. One of my favorites is a butterfly. It comes as two layers but I only cut the solid image.

It is easy to fold over the paper and add a piece of the beautiful sparkly teal ribbon with a bit of sewing. It is such a pleasure to be able to use my sewing machine in my paper arts projects. These are perfect Peacock Junk Journal Elements to use in the next junk journal.

Being on the CCB Design team we are doing an experiment. For this I decided: How to make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists would be a perfect opportunity.

The idea, Feb 17th is Random Act of Kindness Day. On this day the Canvas Corp Brands (CCB) Crew Members will create works of art and leave these for others to find.

Each piece of art will have the #CCBRAK written on the art and we will take photos and post to social media. The hope is those that find the works will go on social media and post that the found the items.

So I decided that I would make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Using CCB products.

Join the Canvas Corp Brands Collective to see all of the items that the Creative Members are making.
