During the live on December 27 2021 Linda used Gel Prints, digital images from Calico Collage, Rubber Stamps and more to create an Eclectic Junk Journal. This journal features lots of pockets and a special envelope flip pocket on the front cover.
For the cover of the flip out envelope, Linda added layers of of Gel print, stamped images using the Bella Rose stamp, a mason jar digital image, tiny envelope & tags.
For the closure of the folio it is tied together with some pretty ribbon.
Creating pockets on the inside of the folio to add journaling elements with Calico Collage images and words, the you see the art deco stencil on the inside.
Many of the images from the Whimsical freebies offered by Calico Collage that you could have gotten if you were on her mailing list!
The envelope flip pocket is adhered to the cover of the eclectic junk journal. A tutorial showing step by step how to make the envelope flip pocket is coming soon!
Spraying Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (TAGM) through the Wild 4 Stencil creates wonderful backgrounds. The TAGM will bleed through thin pages. I like that it does because it makes for a beautiful background in one go!
The black paper used reminds me of the old time photo albums. It was fun to add bright colors to the black!
Scraps of different papers stamped and stenciled makes an interesting page layout. Whatever you do, Don’t be afraid to mix up the colors!
Collaging on a page is a great way to fill space and use up bits! The strips on the right side were cut from another project. These work great on the page!
An Envelope and a scrap of vellum are an interesting feature in this journal. The envelope and vellum are attached to the journal page with a scrap of painted book page. TAGM was sprayed on a wrinkled piece of vellum and allowed to dry. It makes a wonderful crinkling sound!
Another idea is to create a flip up journal spot. This one is a pocket that flips up. An altered paperclip was used to keep the items in the pocket when it is flipped.
This fun pocket was inspired by Pam from the Paper Outpost. She shared a unique way of folding a book page to create a pocket. In the video I show how to create one and adhere it to the journal page.
The best part of eclectic journals is using up your scraps, what will you use to create yours?
