Creating A Tuck Spot and Pocket on a Journal Page is very easy. I began by selecting a mop up page from one of my sessions to be my foundation page.
Stamping on the page while it is unembellished makes it so much easier. I like working on a full journal page and then binding in my journal. But if you have a ready made journal, just follow the steps to add to your current page or create a single page and paste it into your journal.
I like how the 1912 rubber stamp adds a little interest in the background. The Flower Bouquet makes a great accent around the edge of the page. Think about how your stamps can have more than one use. Stamp one image for a focal point and use the same image around the edge of the page.
Lately I’ve been trying to use more fabric in my projects, mainly because I have a bunch and need to use it up!! lol Don’t be afraid to layer fabric over papers to create pockets, journal cards and more.
Prior to the video I created a neutral toned journal page and thought I would share how it compares to the colorful page, so you can see that all styles will work in this concept.
Grab those scraps and play around. Think outside the box and use things you have to create your version of the style of elements I shared today.
