Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page

Continuing with my Fairy Garden junk journal tutorials I decided to share an Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page I created. This Junk Journal Page is truly mixed media. Mixing Acrylic Paint, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, napkin, fibers, book pages and old map and more to create a great page for the Fairy Garden Junk Journal.

For this Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page I created I started with a page out of a street map book. Trim the page to the size needed for the journal, or if you are lucky you can leave it the size it is and go to the next step.

Envelope Napkin Pocket Junk Journal Page

Using the craft paints and Tattered Angles Glam and an old key card, gift card or old credit card spread the paints all over the page on both sides. Keep the layers thin and it will dry quickly. While you have the paint out, cover the old book page – this will become pockets on the JJ.

Apply Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through a stencil on the map page and the book pages that were painted. This will give another layer of yummy color that sparkles. Spray through the stencil on the envelope on both sides. When there is spray on the stencil apply two index cards to the stencil to pick up the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Separate the napkin removing the extra layers. Some napkins have three layers some only two. If you can’t get the layers apart, try putting a piece of tape on the back and gently pulling. This seems to work with some napkins that won’t come apart.

A glue stick is perfect for attaching napkins. It is easier to apply a generous amount of glue stick to the map and then lay the napkin over the glue and gently press and smooth. Since there will be a pocket on one side there is no need to cover the whole page and part of the napkin can be folded over to the other side and adhered in the same manner.

Cut the book page in half as you would read the page to create two pieces to fit on the bottom of the map to create pockets. I like to turn the edges under a little so that it is sturdy. Attach to the map with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Add the embellishments to the new pockets. Lay the eyelash yarn down and then apply glue to the domino label element and press over the yarn. I find that doing it this way helps keep the yarn in place and I don’t have to apply so much glue that gets messy.

Decorate the envelope using the corner pieces from the Fairy Garden journal kit. Fold the envelope in half. Using washi tape attach to the map on the non pocket side but just to the side of the center fold on the page. This way it will be a full envelope that can have items added and it won’t be caught in the binding.

Finish adding journal cards to the page and now it is ready to be added to the Fairy Garden junk journal.

It is fun to use old papers that might have been thrown out. Adding paint and glimmer mist changes the papers into something beautiful and new.

Fairy Garden Painted Envelope Tutorial

I’ve been working on a Fairy Garden Junk Journal. Take a look at this Fairy Garden Painted Envelope Tutorial using an old book page, Calico Collage Fairy Garden Digital download Domino images, ScraPerfects No Clog Writing Cap, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Acrylic paint and more I share how to a fun envelope.

Because I have so many book pages pulled out of books for Junk Journals I like to find new ways to use these in my Junk Journals. Making a mixed media envelope is one way to use up the pages. You can pull several pages, paint and decorate in an assembly line and have a stash to choose from for future projects.

Using the No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect helps to add just the perfect amount of glue to the project. That way it won’t take long for the glue to dry and it keeps costs down because I use less glue.

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.

el Prints into Junk Journal Elements

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.

el 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.

Gel Press Play Time

Getting to go to Creativation 2018 in Phoenix AZ I got to attend a Gel Press workshop. This caused me to come home for some Gel Press Play Time and I thought I would share what I created. It wasn’t a planned project, just playing with Tattered Angels DIY Paint, Glimmer Mist and Ken Olivers Color Bursts.

Gel Press Play Time

The Gel Press is a cool tool to use for creating new pages out of old pages. I like the idea of covering up text on a book page. It gives it a new purpose. After a Gel Press Play Time, these papers can be used in journals and even written upon. I like how the thin layer of paints and sprays changes the paper and dries quickly.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

Supplies used in this Gel Press Play Time session.

  • 5 x 7 Gel Press plate – I picked on up in Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon.
  • DIY paint from Tattered Angels, Sterling, and Cerelcan
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Precious Metal, Tea Cup and Turquoise Blue
  • Ken Oliver’s Color Bursts
  • Bubble Wrap I had two sizes. These are great to save from packages
  • Shelf liner the bumpy kind – I found some at Tuesday Morning, but this could also be found at a dollar store.
  • old gift card or room key card
  • Book pages
  • Paint brushes or popsicle sticks to get the paint out of the jar.
  • Imagination

Here is a video of my Gel Press Play Time session.

My method of Gel Press Play Time was to lay out the gel press and apply paint. I started with the Tattered Angels DIY paint in Sterling and used bubble wrap to add some texture. Take a look around the house, you have lots of things that can be used for texture on a Gel Press.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

Using the Ken Oliver Color Bursts on the plate is a lot of fun. You never know what it will do and spraying it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists just adds another layer of yummy color.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

Press paper to the paint on the Gel Press, smooth with hands or a brayer, then pick up the paper. Each print will be different, but you can use the same colors to have a pack of papers for a project. Fun to have some matching papers to play with.

Gel Press Play Time Gel Press Play Time

When done playing you can clean the Gel Press by adding a layer of paint and pressing paper to it and leaving overnight. Or you can wash with water or even just wipe down with baby wipes. Just be gentle with the Gel Press so you don’t cut the surface. Put it back in the clamshell case without the plastic sheets and it will be ready to use later.

Gel Press Play Time

Sometimes you just need to sit and play. There is no plan but to have fun and try new things. Who knows maybe your Gel Press Play Time session can turn into some beautiful art.

This vinyl has so many colors! They even have a removable line for those projects where you put it on windows or walls.

While I was in the booth I had a little chat with the General Manager for Tape Technologies Inc then I got to sit and watch Sue Eldred create a super cute project. Here is a video of the interview and Sue making the cool project.

Touching this vinyl and seeing all the ways it can be used in projects really got me excited. I could see using this in so many ways, adding bling to a journal, making greeting cards, decorating glassware and so much more!

Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

Hello friends. today I’m sharing a custom junk journal I made for one of my fans. Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal uses lots of purples. The digital images – Among the Stars from Calico Collage were used in this junk journal. But I altered these with a scan of a paper I created to give the pages a darker purple and to tone down the pinks. I love how it turned out!

Purple Among the Stars Junk JournalPurple Among the Stars Junk Journal

Here is a flip through video showing the Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal.

When I saw the purple fabric that was used for the cover I just knew I found the perfect piece. Since she said she loved purple, black and stars it was easy to pull items from my stash and get to work.

Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

I even made three pages out of canvas from Canvas Corp Brands. These pages were sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Fully Purple using a stencil I made on my Cricut Explore Air. Then I added a fabric and lace pocket and more fabric and beaded trim to finish out the page. It is so pretty.

Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal

It was fun to do a little mixed media inside this Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal. Used some old street maps for Oklahoma City and covered those with purple paints. I love being able to alter the color of paper.

Using my Cricut Explore Air I made two different star stencils. One was what I call a waterfall of stars the other is an all over star pattern. Fully Purple Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist was the main one I used for this Purple Among the Stars Junk Journal.

Take a look at those supplies you have, it could be that spraying with something like Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists will take something blah to wow. In this journal, I was able to alter the color of paper, canvas, and even eyelash yarn.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Getting ready for Creativation 2018 in Pheonix AZ, are you? I was asked to make a few junk journals for the Canvas Corp Brands booth that includes 7gpysies and Tattered Angels. I came up with a 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal that I’m in love with and don’t want to let go of for the show. lol I do hope to get it back.

Supplies used in the 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

When I got this paper collection in front of me I decided I really wanted to use as much as possible and not add other products from other companies if I could help it. I believe that I have achieved this goal.

Here is a flip through video of this 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal.

I began by cutting the papers 8 inches tall by 12 inches wide. Saving one of the papers for the cover and the others to become pages.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Next, I selected three pieces of burlap to make pages and used the 4-inch pieces that were cut off of the cardstock papers to make pockets on the burlap.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal 7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

Sewing canvas, paper, fabric, and burlap was a lot of fun. I love the look it gives this journal. One of my friends said it looked tattered, old and junky. Well, that was my goal! lol

Trying new things in each project helps me grow as an artist. Today it was making a page out of burlap. What new thing have you tried lately in your creative play?

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group did a napkin swap a while back. This prompted me to create a Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial to show how to use all those wonderful napkins. This Napkin Junk Journal Page is a great mixed media project, using the napkin, acrylic paint and Tattered Angels Glam and Glimmer Mists.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The supplies used for the Napkin Junk Journal Page.

Once all the supplies were gathered I set up the camera to record the process. Here is the video I made for the Napkin Junk Journal Page.

The one tip that I feel is the most helpful is to use a fresh glue stick and apply it to the paper where you want the napkin to be applied. Go beyond where the napkin will be attached so that the whole edge gets adhered. Glue Sticks dry clear and they don’t leave a tacky residue so don’t worry about getting too much.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Try not to get any glue on the napkin, only on the page you are attaching and go slow to lay the napkin down. Try not to rub the napkin but pat it down lightly and press it onto the paper.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Creating a Napkin Junk Journal Page is a great way to use those beautiful napkins. I love how the napkin becomes one with the journal page and looks like it was printed instead of adhered.

Do you have a large stash of napkins? My stash isn’t huge, but I pick up a few here and there or I get a few as gifts. Hopefully, now I’ve given you another idea of how to use those beautiful napkins.

Perfect amount of glue

Ever need the Perfect amount of glue only to get a giant blob? Today I’ll share how to use the No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect. It will help you get a tiny amount of glue every time. No worries about a giant blob of glue ruining your project with the No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect.

Perfect amount of glue

In the video, I show the components of the No Clog Writing Cap and how to get the Perfect amount of glue.

When working with papercrafts I have been using Aleene’s Tacky glue. But the glue bottle has a very large hole for dispensing glue. If not careful a large blob will come out and could ruin your project.

Perfect amount of glue

With the No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect, I can get a tiny amount of glue. This saves time and money. It saves time because that tiny drop of glue will dry much faster than the large blob. And using this cap saves money because only a small drop is used and the glue isn’t wasted.

Perfect amount of glue

The No Clog Writing Cap from ScraPerfect is a great way to get the Perfect amount of glue in projects and it is a great value. The Large No Clog Cap works great on the large and smaller bottles of Aleene’s Tacky glue. As these two bottles have the same size caps.

Perfect amount of glue
