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!

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.

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.

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.

7gypsies Seamstress Junk Journal

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?

Traveling to Creativation in Pheonix AZ will be a great week. I’m looking forward to seeing all the new products and connecting with other artists.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Happy New Year everyone. Today I’m sharing a Happy New Year Junk Journal Page Tutorial. This Junk Journal Page is for the Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook group for a swap.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

The idea is that we all trade pages and then we can use these in our junk journals. The size of the pages are 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch.

Supplies used in making the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

Video Tutorial for the Happy New Year Junk Journal Page.

This Happy New Year Junk Journal Page is super easy to create. Using a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapbook paper that has a light color or print that goes with your theme is helpful.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Using the Fiskars paper trimmer and a stylis score at the 8-inch mark down one side. Rotate the paper and score at 10.5 inches. Fold up the 4 inches at the bottom. Next, fold over the 1.5-inch flap to the smooth side of the paper. On the flap turn the corner of the lower flap down to give a finished edge. Fold the page in half with the 4-inch pocket at the bottom and now on the front of the page.

Now that the page has been folded you can now see where to decorate with stamps and the stencil. Once the page has been stamped and sprayed let it dry for a moment and then added lace to the flap and the pocket. I use a glue stick to hold the lace in place and then sew the lace on my sewing machine.

Adhere the flap and pocket to the page with the Best Glue Ever and set aside.

Assemble the words and numbers, add the rhinestones with the Best Glue Ever and Embellie Jellie. Adding flatback rhinestones to the project was so easy using ScraPerfects, Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Attach the words and 2018 to the page with the Best Glue Ever. Then add the journal cards and tuck spot.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

Making one of these junk journal pages is so much easier than trying to plan a whole journal at one time. I find that if I think about one page (it actually creates four pages when added to a journal) it is much easier for me.

Happy New Year Junk Journal Page

When you are out looking at paper take a look at the die cut sheets. there might be one that would make a great stencil to use with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

I’m loving this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal I just completed. Using the Calico Collage digital kit Song Bird. This time when I used this digital kit I decided to use a lot of pink throughout the journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

This Pink Song Bird Junk Journal measures 6 x 8.5 with 64 pages. Lots of journal cards and tuck spots throughout this junk journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Here is a video flip through of the Pink Song Bird Junk Journal and Journal Kits.

For the cover of this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal, I used a pretty floral fabric with butterflies. I loved the pinks in the fabric and that is what made me choose to use pink inside the journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Using the iridescent glitter tule on the dragonfly junk journal was a hit so I decided to use it again on this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

The pages have been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through stencils that I made using my Cricut. I’m really enjoying making my own stencils. I can match the theme of the junk journal and it is an original design.

Another favorite tool in my studio is my sewing machine. I love adding the zigzag stitches to the pages and elements.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

The lace elements in this Pink Song Bird Junk Journal were all colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Spraying the lace with the colors I love helps me use up the white lace in my stash. It also makes it easy to make more lace matching the colors I’m using.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

Sewing strips of the fabric to the journal cards helped tie the elements together. When making the Journal Kits I made sure to add enough of the fabric that can be used on the elements that you might make.

Pink Song Bird Junk Journal Pink Song Bird Junk Journal

When I’m making junk journals I really love being able to use my rubber stamps. It makes it easy to make pretty journal cards with a great select of stamps.

The journal kits have all the elements used in the Pink Song Bird Junk Journal. The sewn elements – pages and journal cards are done. But you get to choose where to attach the pocket, tuck spots and install the journal cards. You can even add more of your pages and elements.

Winter Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sharing a Tutorial for a Winter Junk Journal Page made for a swap inside Friendly Junk Journal People Facebook Group. Making these monthly pages are a lot of fun.

Winter Junk Journal Page

The concept is that a page measuring 8 inches tall by 10.5 inches wide is folded in half to make an 8 x 5.25 inch page that can be added to a junk journal. The group decided that it was easier to swap pages than a whole journal. Each person will have pages they can add to a junk journal or they can make one junk journal with all the pages.

Here is a video Tutorial Winter Junk Journal Page.

Items used for this Winter Junk Journal Page

The method for this page is very simple. Choose a page that has an area that can be cut into a pocket. Cut the corner and adhere this piece to scrap of paper. My pages are printed on standard copy paper and I wanted the pocket to be thicker.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Use the Brutus Monroe Surface ink – Sea and the Ranger Blending Tool to add color to the edges of this cut piece.

Adhere the main page with a glue stick to another scrap paper to give a finished backside to the page and to give a foundation where the corner was cut free.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Sew lace on the edge of the pocket. Then Sew the pocket on the page. I went ahead and sewed all around the page.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Assemble the page. Prior to the video, I created altered paperclips and journal cards using Calico Collage Simply Winter junk journal kit.

Junk Journal Page Tutorial

I like trying new things when making my junk journals. I hope that seeing the Tutorial on this Winter Junk Journal Page has inspired you.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Welcome my friends, today I’m sharing a Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial. This pocket was in the Let it Snow Junk Journal and I made extras for the Simply Winter Junk Journal kits. I thought I would share How I made it so others could make their own Junk Journal Pocket.

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Here is a video showing the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial.

Supplies used for the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial

The method used in this Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial is very simple. Take a page out of an old book. I’ve even used books from the Dollar Tree. Fold the book in half from top to bottom. Turn down one corner and adhere in place.

Using a Snowflake Stencil (I made the stencil myself using my Circut and a snowflake image and cut on Transparency film.) Spray with both colors of Tattered Angels Mists.

Once the page is dry (can use a heat tool if necessary) take to the sewing machine. Stitch around the outside edges to add a touch of zig-zag stitches.

Next using the Calico Collage Vintage Holiday charm image, a few punched shapes and some sheet music decorate the pocket. I even used some blue eyelash yarn for cool texture.

To put in the pocket I made a tag using Canvas Corp Brands Canvas an index card and more of the Tattered Angels Mists.

After watching the Junk Journal Pocket Tutorial I know you will make a lot of these fun and beautiful pockets.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

Hello everyone. Today I’m sharing the following Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal. One of my followers requested that I make a custom junk journal for her. The requirements she had were, dragonflies, hedgehogs, nature, eagles, earth tones – brick and burgundy reds, olive and moss green, and golden yellows.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

So using the list of things she liked and knowing the list of things she didn’t want I proceeded to pull items and share with her what I was thinking. She came back with feedback on the items she loved and wanted more of and we changed directions once. Once I had all the elements I set to work on the journal.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

Here is a flip through video of the Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal.

Loir Louise is her name and she said she loved to color. That gave me the idea to make a lot of little journal cards that she could color and then write on the backside.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

I used the Dragonfly Delight journal kit from Calico Collage. This kit has a lot of teal and pink. Using distress inks and a blending tool I was able to alter the colors and add more golds, reds and darker greens. It really changed the look of the pages.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

Also used a few pages from the Gypsy Love journal kit from Calico Collage. The deeper greens and reds and gold I thought went perfectly with the other pages. I also liked that these pages were a different size so it gave some added interest to the journal.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

Since she liked autumn colors and dragonflies I used two of my custom stencils. Wanting to have stencils that fit my pages and had themes I liked I used my Cricut. Cutting each page to be the correct size and have images I liked. No one else will have these stencils thus making my junk journals unique. Lots of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were used on the pages.

Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal Aspire Dream Custom Junk JournalAspire Dream Custom Junk JournalAspire Dream Custom Junk Journal

Other elements used in the Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal was the floral fabric. To add interest here and there I cut one-inch strips of the fabric and then sewed on the pages, journal cards, and other elements.

Making this Aspire Dream Custom Junk Journal was a lot of fun for me. Being able to pull my stamps down and give them a good workout made me smile.

Video Tutorial showing the Christmas Junk Journal with Transfer Foil applied. This video also shows how to bind a Junk Journal using a pamphlet stitch and then a flip through of the journal.

To create this Christmas Junk Journal with Transfer Foil, I began with applying the Best Glue Ever to a foam brush and then on the rubber stamp. Press the stamp to the desired area and let air dry for a minute or two.

While the glue is drying on the project clean the stamp with the Best Glue Ever. Only a small amount is needed and spread with your finger to cover the surface. Wipe clean with a towel.

The stamped image should be tacky to the touch. Apply the Transfer Foil over the image and rub with fingers. It only takes a moment and the foil will stick to the image. Lift the transfer foil sheet and admire the beautiful foil.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

Since March I’ve been asking Norella from Calico Collage for a Dragonfly Junk Journal kit. Well, she made one and I finally got time to make it into a journal and made three journal kits as well.

Dragonfly Junk JournalDragonfly Junk Journal

This Dragonfly Junk Journal measures 6 x 8.5 inches with a 1.5 inch spine. There are 3 signatures with a total of 19 sheets of paper to make a total of 76 pages. The cover is fabric over chipboard and a little glitter tule sewed on top. Love the dragonfly broach I attached to the cover. It can be removed and worn. 🙂

Dragonfly Junk Journal

I made the dragonfly journal charms, here is the blog post with all the details on how to make a dragonfly journal charm. This is one of my favorite styles of journal charms to make, I can detach from the journal and where it on a necklace or attach to other items.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

Here is a flip through video of the Dragonfly Junk Journal and the kits I made.

Using Dragonfly Delight by Calico Collage for the images was such a joy. When Norella told me the kit was ready I was over the moon! The images she created and used are so wonderful. Love the colors too! Also used the Domino and Bottle Cap Dragonfly Delight images.

While out shopping I found the beautiful fabric with the flowers and butterflies and knew that it was a perfect match for this Dragonfly Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

For the journal cards inside this Dragonfly Junk Journal, I wanted different styles and sizes. It was fun to make different journal cards to have variety inside this journal.

Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal

Sewing lace on the edges of the pages really does add a little something special.  I love using the zig-zag stitch over the lace.

Dragonfly Junk Journal

Since I didn’t have a dragonfly stencil I made two using my Cricut and transparency film. It was easy to make, found silhouette image of a dragonfly, duplicated and turned the images to make a random pattern and told the Cricut Explore Air to cut. Now I have a stencil I can use over and over!

Because the Simply Winter journal Kits were such a great hit I decided to make three Dragonfly Junk Journal kits. These kits have over 90 pieces and include the items necessary for the cover and inside pages.

Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal

For the most part, the journals have the same elements, these might have different images but the same amount of pages and journal cards inside these Dragonfly Junk Journal Kits.

Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk Journal Dragonfly Junk JournalDragonfly Junk Journal

Used a lot of Tulip Glitter paint on this junk journal. The glimmer it adds to the images is so pretty. Of course, I have to use lots of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists inside this Dragonfly Junk Journal and the kits too.

The journal cards are ready to be used and all the page are cut to the correct size.
