Recently I picked up a set of Orange papers from Canvas Corp Brands. I though these paired with the Natures Glory digital images from Calico Collage would go together nicely.
Once I had the pages cut to the size I wanted I used the leleftoverits to make journaling cards or tuck spots.
Ripping pages out of an old book is so much fun and even better is to turn these into new pages for a junk journal. I did this with two sets of pages in the journal. First I take two pages and add washi tape to attach and reinforce the center. Next I used some tissue paper, gesso and some Ranger sprays that I had in my stash. I used the same stencil on both of the sets so that there was some cohesiveness in the Orange Natures Beauty Travelers Notebook Junk Journal.
While digging through my stash of items I found some really cool computer punch cards. These were given to me years ago and I hadn’t used but a few, These made perfect journaling cards for the journal. A few I painted, added bits of paper, wallpaper, and sewing. Of course they also have Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists added too.
Another item I found in my stash was popcorn bags. The old fashion paper type. I decided to paint the front with gesso and attach a floral napkin and a little more gesso on top. These were then used as inserts in the journal. One I attached to a page so that there is the bag to add items into and the behind is a tuck spot.
Wallpaper samples are great go use as pages in junk journals too. For the Orange Natures Beauty Travelers Notebook Junk Journal I decided to add a couple of wallpaper items. Die cutting the wallpaper for a corner tuck spot turned out pretty. I love the flowers on the wallpaper.
Several of the Calico Collage images were added into this junk journal with washi tape and some with sewing. Many of the images flip out so that journaling can be done on the back side.
There is even a Lavender Sachet included in this journal. It has real lavender flowers enclosed in paper and tulle. I love how it smells.
Holding this Orange Natures Beauty Travelers Notebook Junk Journal in my hands makes me happy. I love the texture and colors on the pages. Sometimes when I look at what I created I think: “Did I make that?” I feel I have grown as an artist and have learned a lot.
My hope is that you are inspired by my Orange Natures Beauty Travelers Notebook Junk Journal and make one of your own. It is a lot of fun and there is no wrong way to make a junk journal. Use what you have and have fun.
