Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page

Continuing on the Fairy Garden Junk Journal Series. I love finding new ways to use items in my stash. For this project, I came up with the idea of Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page. For my project the page was uncolored, but a colored page can be used too! Adding images from the Fairy Garden digital journal kit from Calico Collage helped to tie it into the journal I’m making.

Super quick video tutorial on Coloring book page into Junk Journal Page.

Cut the coloring book page out of the book. I like to cut the height the same as my other journal pages. Then on one of the sides, fold over about 2 inches to create a pocket. Using Aleene’s Tacky glue adhere the top and bottom of this pocket in place.

Cut the images from the Fairy Garden digital journal kit. Use Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edges of the paper. Assemble the envelope using a glue stick. Make sure that you don’t glue the envelope closed.

Add the journal cards and envelope to the pocket and it is ready to be added to the junk journal.

Notebook paper into Junk Journal Page

Did you know that you can turn Notebook paper into Junk Journal Page? Continuing on my Fairy Garden Junk Journal series today I’ll show how to take a simple notebook page and turn it into a beautiful Junk Journal Page for the Fairy Garden Junk Journal I’ve been working. Using notebook paper, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Images from Calico Collage Fairy Garden digital Journal kit, I’ll make a beautiful junk journal page.

Begin by trimming the height of the page to match other pages for the junk journal. I like to keep my pages about the same size. Next, score the edges so that a flap can be created. I used the width of the page as a guide. Use Aleene’s Tacky Glue to adhere the top and bottom of the flaps to the page, this will create a pocket.

Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and a stencil apply color to the page on both sides. Allow to dry or use a heat tool to speed up the drying time.

Apply distress ink Vintage Photo to the envelope. Alter the envelope by using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and the stencil. Let the envelope dry or use a heat tool. Apply Fairy Garden images including the words. For my altered envelope, I applied glue on two edges so that this created a cute tuck spot on the envelope.

Adhere the butterfly and tuck spot to the new pockets on the notebook paper. Add journal cards and you are done!

That was super easy huh? What are your favorite images to use when making a junk journal? I’ve been having fun with the Fairy Garden images from Calico Collage.

Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot

Here is another video from the Fairy Garden Junk Journal I’ve been working on. This is the Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot I created for the journal. I created these as kits for a workshop and it seemed to go over nicely. They liked that I had all the elements picked out and ready to go. Being organized while creating junk journals really makes it so much easier.

Here is the tutorial video showing how to make the Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot.

Once the images are printed and trimmed down to size use Vintage Photo around the edges. Apply vintage photo to the edges of the ticket, label heart and words.

Use a glue stick to adhere the domino image and the floral image. Snip a piece of eyelash yarn and place it on the images and then use Aleene’s Tacky glue to adhere the words and heart.

Add the flowers and that completes the Fairy Garden Altered Paperclip and Tuck Spot.

If you don’t have the tools to make the shapes, find things around the home to use as a template and hand cut the shapes. This is what I did for years until I got the cutting tools.

Planner Page into Junk Journal Page

When digging through my papers I found an old planner that my brother gave to me and thought I need to turn this Planner Page into Junk Journal Page. So today I’m sharing how I turned it into the junk journal page using Tattered Angels Glimmer mists, Scrapbook papers, and images from Calico Collage’s Fairy Garden digital journal kit.

Video Tutorial showing how to make Planner Page into Junk Journal Page.

Taking an old Planner Page and using as a junk journal page is another way to use up those old things that are laying around. Begin by trimming the page to the size that matches your other pages for the journal. Or leave it the original size for a larger page.

Apply Walnut Gold and Kraft Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist through a stencil on the Planner Page. I made my stencil using my Cricut Explore Air and write on transparency. I love how I can custom make stencils for projects like this one.

Cut scrapbook paper the same width as the planner page when in landscape and about 6 inches tall. Then fold in half (hot dog style – a term I learned a few weeks ago to indicate that it will be long and skinny like a hotdog). Attach to the planner page on the bottom covering up the holes using Aleene’s Tacky glue.

Spray a scrap of purple cardstock with Tattered Angels to alter the color. Then attach scraps of notebook paper by folding over the top edge a little and stapling in place.

Attach the floral element with a glue stick and add the journal cards into the pockets. Now enjoy the page you made by Planner Page into Junk Journal Page.

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.

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.

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

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.

Napkin Junk Journal Page Tutorial

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.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial Supply list

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial Video.

After collecting the items I attached the two sheets of watercolor paper together with washi tape on the back backside. This made a large sheet I could work on and then cut up later.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Stamp the images with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven. Then adhere torn bits of the Damask Tissue paper and dictionary page.

Using the stencil made on the Cricut Explore Air I used the Chalk sprays to add color to the page.

Next applied the Glam and High Impact paint with some yellow acrylic paint with an old room key card in a random fashion.

Using a couple of stencils and gesso I then added a layer over the whole sheet.

Apply a little watered down glimmer mist or use a spray bottle of water then spray with Electric Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist here and there.

Use PVA to attach the torn napkin all over.

Once this is dry – I used a heat tool to speed up the process. Apply the three different pink acrylic paints to create flowers around the torn napkin pieces. Creating whole new flowers.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Apply Cranberry Zing Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist with a paint brush over the flowers.

Seal the work with Krylon Matte Finish Spray – I took it outside as the fumes are not good to smell.

Then using a Pitt Pen made marks around the flowers to give more definition.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Remove the washi tape from the back and cut the two pages apart. Then cut down to 5 x 5.5 inch pieces.

I really love how these Mixed Media Crazy Pages turned out! There will be more I will be making! Soon I’ll show other projects using the scans I made of the pages.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Take time to play with your art supplies. There is no wrong way to enjoy making something beautiful. Try new things and don’t worry about how it turns out. It might look like a hot mess at first, but keep playing and before you know it you have a wonderful work of art.
