Creating a Mixed Media Folio Journal Base

Getting started on Creating a Mixed Media Folio Journal Base is super easy. First I grabbed a few book pages and painted them with acrylic paint. Then using a stencil I added patterns. During last weeks session I showed using a dauber to apply paint through the stencil, this week I showed how to use a brayer. I find that the dauber works best!

Once the book pages have been painted select some to use for the inside and set those aside.

To create the base of the folio journal select a couple of oversized postcards (or other thick paper to chipboard thickness) for the front and back cover. I trimmed mine to be 6 x 8.5 inches.

Next select a few book pages. Mine are from a large dictionary and are slightly larger than 8.5 x 11 inches. I like to keep my journals around the 5.5 x 8.5 inch size. I trimmed the book pages to be 8.5 tall and left them long.

Start by gluing a plain book page to the postcard and then keep adding book pages to the end until you get the length you might want. For this journal I think I used 4 pages.

I like to have my postcard covered with book page so I covered both of those so that the whole base will look like never ending book pages. lol

Accordion fold the pages at the size you want. Mine are six inches wide.

Once you have the journal pages folded you can now start adding the painted pages.

I decided that I would cut several pages so that I could get a patchwork effect.

Adhere the pages using Aleene’s tacky glue or your favorite adhesive. When one side is covered with the mixed media pages, fold again. This will help train it to know where it should bend.

Continue adding papers to the other side.

See how simple this was to create? This is one of those projects you could put on some music, or a favorite movie/tv show and just have fun playing.

Come back next week and see how I decorate the folio journal with mixed media papers, stamps and more.

Supplies used
How to Make a Handkerchief Pocket, start with a fabric handkerchief. Cut into quarters and select one of those quarters to use for the pocket.

Adhere the handkerchief to a book page, leaving at least a half inch of book page sewing on all sides, especially if it is thin or see through. Or adhere to a plain sheet of paper if you don’t want the text to be seen.

For my pocket I wanted it to be 5 x 5 inches. I used the existing sewed hem for two of the sides and scored the other two sides to the desired size.

Fold on the score lines to indicate pocket size. Make sure that it will accommodate the journal card you plan to put in the pocket. I will lay the card down over the handkerchief and then fold the edges in to confirm the size.

Select a length of flat lace and adhere on the side that doesn’t have a hem.

Open up the folds so that these don’t get sewn down. Sew the other three sides, which will help the napkin to stay in place over the book page.

Select two white paper flowers – these were old from my stash, if you have dies you could cut flowers or hand cut out of paper. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to change to a matching color. Dry the flowers or the spray will transfer to the napkin.

Stack the flowers together with glue. Select a piece of green Tattered Angels Dyed fabric and pleat to mimic a leaf and adhere under the flower. Add a flat back pearl or other gem to the center and adhere the flower unit on the napkin.

Adhere the sentiment in the corner or desired area.

Create the journal card with pocket. Using a piece of 5 x 7 cardstock as the base and a 5 x 3.5 inch piece adhere together. Round the corners. Apply a strip of scrapbook paper in the center of the pocket piece and then adhere a horse phrase on top.
