Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals

Thanks to the following vendors for sharing products with me for this giveaway. Crafters Companion for the Gemini Junior and dies. Surebonder for the glue gun and glue. And Holster Brands for one of their clever holsters. Thank you for helping to make this giveaway possible.

Here is the video of the Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals.

I decided to share a few of my old journals and alter books because people keep asking when I first started making journals. Back in the 1990’s, I made a lot of different styles of journals. Most were altered books. There wasn’t an outlet in the area for sharing these altered books so I went back to making more greeting cards than journals. It was a little over a year ago that I picked journal making back up.

The winners of the giveaway:

  • Johanne Lancombe – Flowers made by me
  • Susan Tracy – Flowers Made by me
  • Linda Davis – Holster
  • Erica Nelson – Glue Gun and glue
  • Brandy Wollet – Gemini Junior and dies

Congratulations to each of the winners. Please contact me with your mailing address so I can send the prizes. 🙂 Thank you so very much for watching and entering the giveaway. My hope is you will enjoy the prizes shared in the Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals.

Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements

It has been a few days since I did the Gel Press Play Time and now it is time to use the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements. This project a was also prompted because I’m in a blog hop #thanks4watchingart on YouTube with a lot of very talented artists. Make sure that you visit each one to see their projects.

Gel Press Play Time

Using my new Gemini cutter from Crafters Companion with their dies I was able to sit and play for a while and turn the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements. I love how intricate the dies cut even on thin papers.  Too many times in the past I would cut a die and it wouldn’t do a good job, but the Gemini cuts beautifully every time.

Here is a video showing how I took the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements.

Supplies used today in this project Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements.

My method was to use the pages I had with the dies from Crafters Companion in the Gemini and see how it turned out.  Each print is unique, even when I used the same colors no two were the same, similar but not the same. I love this idea of making a bunch of prints and then using these for junk journal elements. It was fun to use the Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements.

Before you throw out those old papers and pages take a look at my Gel Press Play Time post and see if you can then turn these Gel Prints into Junk Journal Elements like I did.

Once you get started you won’t know when to stop. lol Have fun making your own.
