Working on a music themed journal, today I’m Embellishing Music Journal Pages. Using a page from a song book as a base I’ll show how to add a few elements to create a beautifully embellished page.

Supplies used

Embellishing Music Journal Pages is made easy when you have a creative kit. Using one of the belly band strips for the right side of the page is a handy way to hold a journal card. The journal card was made from handmade paper. I have a handmade paper tutorial video or check out the blog, that shows my process. In my shop I have a selection of handmade papers for sale.

Layering the painted laser cut chipboard piece over a strip of hand dyed music on the journal card is a great way to add interest.

Book pages are so handy to create pockets for a journal. Even when I made the pocket in error for another project I was able to save it and use it here! Don’t throw it out if you feel you made a mistake. It is an opportunity to try something new!

Change up that book page by adding distress inks. Taking plain book page to colorful is so easy!

Layer a page from an old hymnal to continue the music theme. I love using my sewing machine to add a few stitches to my journal pages.

Fill the pocket with a premade journal card from the creative kit and the journal page is done!
