Still making a journal every day for my #junkjournaljuly challenge. Here is today’s project, Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal. Using Canvas Corp Home Basics papers and Calico Collage Gypsy Love images in this one.
A few weeks ago a friend gave me a large box of fabric. Some of it is really fancy like velvet, and some are simple fabrics that she used for making cosplay costumes. It was fun digging around in this box to see all the colors and textures of fabric. I picked out a small piece of crushed red velvet and knew that it would be a perfect touch on this Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.
Sewing has always been a passion of mine. Since I learned how to sew at a very young age I really like adding sewing to projects. For the cover of this Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal, I decided to layer the Calico Collage image on top of the velvet and added some trims. Doing a zig zag stitch around the outside gives this a truly handmade feel.
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are my favorite way to change or add color to paper. I have several reams of a light green linen paper that to some isn’t that pretty. but when I add the Glimmer Mists over the paper it gives it a new life.
Gypsy Travelers Notebook Junk Journal a few of the items used:
Canvas Corp Home Basics, Red & Ivory Damask, Red & Ivory Big Stripe
Various colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
Brutus Monroe Stamps and Ink

The journal measures 8.25 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide. It has 12 sheets of paper to make 48 pages. Lots of space to write in this journal. As well as places to tuck mementos.
Making these junk journals give me joy. When I have a completed journal in my hands I just love the way it feels. Looking at the pages, feeling the texture of the elements added.
It’s been so much fun that I created a Facebook Group. You are also welcome to join the Friendly Junk Journal People. It is a small group at the moment, but it is growing and we would love to have you with us.
