Live on YouTube Creating Mixed Media Elements for Junk Journals. Using acrylic paint to create mixed media pages along with gel press, stencils and rubber stamps I created elements. In this live stream I made journal cards, pockets, altered paperclips, mini journal and a journal page.

Linda created these journal tags using mixed media elements, thread, and stamps. Save time by stamping images, watercoloring with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and then fussy cut. Having these elements hand makes creating these journal cards go much faster.

Here Linda shows how she used the Shabby Stitches Stamp and elements painted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, and the White on Black Inspirational words Linda created these journal cards

Linda used old sewing thread, book pages with other elements to create an altered paper clips. She took a Butterfly  painted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and hid the sewing thread behind the butterfly. Using old thread in a sewing machine can become a headache, as the thread become brittle and brakes. So instead of throwing out the tread use it on your projects.

Linda quickly created mixed media mini journal with a lace tie during the stream as requested. She used the Butterfly Beauties Cube rubber stamps on the cover.

Using gel prints Linda showed how to create a fun mixed media pen with a paperclip, then added a fiber tassel. Adding a pen like this is great to write with in your junk journals.

Taking scrapbook pages and your scraps you can create a great journal page with a belly band. She showed how to fold up a 12 x 12 inch piece of scrapbook paper to make a fun letter to add into the journal. Linda also added a White on Black Inspirational word to the folded letter .

As requested here is a 1.5 x 8.5 book binders template. Print on Card stock, trim and use your awl to make the holes for a template where to poke holes for binding a pamphlet stitch journal. Can be used for a three signature journal too.
