Recently I was contacted about making a junk journal. So today I’m sharing How to make a Buxom Beauties Junk Journal. Using the Buxom Beauties – 5×7 Digital Paper Pack by Pop Stock Images and Calico Collage Vintage illustrations of Victorian ladies free digital download.
Today I decided that I would use the mop up sheets from when I spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. These sheets became my journal pages that I then attached the printed digital images.
The pages were put together with my sewing machine. I found that this allowed me to play a little and create pockets on every page.
Also used in this journal were some very old onion paper that I had in my stash. I thought it would be a nice touch for someone to use for journaling.
It was fun to add the corsets to the pages and leave room to tuck things, like a mini pocket.
Pulling pages from an old book and folding into pockets that were sewn in also gave more areas to add bits to the journal.
Index cards make a great way to add journal spots, for those that like lines to write on, these are well loved.
I used a small heart punch to add hearts to the string in the binding. When I did this I had the negative left over. So I decided that it would look pretty to add those into the journal. This also prompted me to punch more hearts and use them where I saw a blank spot. These were added after the video filming.
Here is a video on How to make a Buxom Beauties Junk Journal:
Not one to have leftover bits to store, I ended up using all of the scrapbook papers in the journal. I cut some to make journal pages that had other bits added and then the scraps became smaller inserts. Some were small enough to be bookmarks or fun journal spots.
While the Buxom Beauties – 5×7 Digital Paper Pack by Pop Stock Images journal kit only had eight pages to print and a few more of journal bits, I was still able to make a nice little journal with the pages and not reprint any.
Love how the Calico Collage Vintage illustrations of Victorian ladies free digital download images went really well with the images and colors in this journal.
Of course, more could be added, like lace and doilies and more. But for this project, I decided to keep it pretty simple.
I’ll pick up another kit from Pop Stock Images, I was told that the new journal kits have 20 pages and other bits added.
