Colorful Mixed Media Junk Journal

Today I’m sharing the Colorful Mixed Media Junk Journal that was made in the Youtube Live Event on Monday, October 1, 2018. In the live video, I show how I made the mixed media pages and added these to junk that a friend gave me to make a journal. Used Calico Collage digital journal kit Charming Forest, stamps, Tattered Angels Mists, Stencils and more.

A few of the items used in the making of the Colorful Mixed Media Junk Journal

Looking at this journal makes me so happy. Love petting the pages and feeling the texture from the paints and papers on each page.

Being able to give a new life to items that would normally be thrown away is fun to me. Do you collect items when you go on trips? What do you think you will look for next time you are on a road trip? I like to pick up maps and brochures that have pretty images.

Colorful Mixed Media Junk Journal

Since there was a natural pocket with the front and back covers I decided to add a journal insert. That way you can write notes, memories, and whatnot and then slip it back into the cover pockets.

Wouldn’t this be a great gift journal for a friend? You could give it to them like it is, or you could write notes about what you love about them, share special memories with them that they can enjoy.

Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial

Come along and see the Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial today. There are several crew members of the Canvas Corp Brands that are sharing lots of Fall inspired projects to get you in the mood for Fall. Make sure you visit my blog to visit the posts by the others.

Supplies used for the Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial.

The journal measures 8.25 x 6 inch Junk Journal with a total of 36 pages. The pages are a mix of cardstock and copy paperweight. Each page has been sprayed with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist and also feature a stamped image.

Using a stencil with the Tattered Angels Mists adds a personal touch to each page. I love that it adds color to the page that can still be written upon.

Stamping in black ink on each page gives a little bit of decoration that is simple and pretty. The images could even be colored by the journal owner.

Pockets in a journal are a great way to keep mementos of an event or time in our lives. The pocket pictured above was made from a book page during the mixed media pages tutorial.

The thicker watercolor paper from Tattered Angels is beautiful. The texture and weight of the paper is perfect for using watercolor paints.

Sewing other papers on top of a dictionary page gives unique writing space and adds a little bit of decorative detail. The pocket is hand to keep journal cards or other notes.

The grungy pages with the sprays and stamping make me happy. This is one of those journals that you can sit and pet.

The mixture of cardstock with notebook paper gives a lot of character to this Fall Journal.

Mermaid Loaded Mini Bag

Sharing a Mermaid Loaded Mini Bag for a Swap. One of the groups on Facebook had a One day swap. The idea was we would all speak up if we wanted to do a loaded mini bag swap and that same day we would be given our partner. After chatting with my partner and learning what she liked I decided to make a Mermaid themed loaded mini bag. Here is the result.

Supplies used for the Mermaid Loaded Mini Bag.

This Mermaid Loaded Mini Bag was a great way for me to use up items in my stash. The instructions said to use a 6 x 6 piece of scrapbook paper and a mini bag. The bag I had was not small but not giant either. So I decided to make it in my own style.

Mermaid Loaded Mini BagThe bag was mounted to a piece of cardstock and then I started adding scrapbook papers I had in my stash to give it a great ocean theme.

Mermaid Loaded Mini BagAdding stamping to premade cards makes this project fast. I also found a few blank journal cards to give a new look. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Curious was added here and there to give that ocean feel.

Mermaid Loaded Mini BagMy Mermaid stash bag had lots of left over bits from other projects. Keeping all the items in a ziplock or pocket helps with creating a project like this one.

Mermaid Loaded Mini BagThe Mermaid Loaded Mini Bag really looked great when I was done. There are lots of goodies to be used in other projects.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through

Sharing an Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through today. On Sept 17th during the YouTube Live stream, I showed how to add elastic to make a Midori style junk journal or travelers notebook. During the video, I also showed how to bind one of the inserts as well as created a journal card. The Journal is now complete and I’m sharing the contents.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through

The Apple Spice Junk Journal measures 8.25 x 6 inch Junk Journal with a total of 36 pages. Three journal inserts that can be removed from the cover. This journal will hold four inserts. The journal is for sale and listed in my store.

This Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through was a fun to make. Using scraps of canvas, burlap, and papers for the cover from my stash is helping me to reduce the stash!

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughRecently I picked up some of those bulb pins and I’m loving being able to attach items to my journal like this little journal charm. Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughThe cover has pockets so you can add extra cards or other items you want to keep. A pen can be added as well so you always have one handy.

The first insert in this Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through is a one month planner. The first page flips out and you can write all kinds of notes on the back or in the boxes on the front.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughUsing mixed media pages I created for another project to make a pocket page is a great way to have more space to save items.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through One of my favorite things is adding Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists to journal pages. The colors match perfectly with the digital journal kit from Calico Collage.

The planner pages are so fun. Having a week all on one page is a great way to list items and keep track of what needs to be done. The other pages are fun to write special notes or even attach photos.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughUsing different colors of cardstock for the insert covers adds a little flair. This 7gypsies flocked paper is fun, love the way it feels.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Fall is so beautiful, don’t you agree? Today I’m sharing a Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial. This project was hosted by Bea Grob and four artists in total participated as this is an international swap. Using Tattered Angels Products and more I show how I created my postcards and then show how I decorated all the postcards.

Supplies used in the Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Let’s get this Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial started. Begin by selecting a large piece of watercolor paper. This will be a master board style project. The idea is that you decorate a large sheet of paper, then cut it up for the project.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Next using stencils, Tattered Angels Mists and more start adding color to the watercolor master board. Dry with a heat tool or allow to dry naturally. It is a good idea to let each layer dry before applying more mediums.

Collage bits of mixed media papers on top of the misted paper. Adhere the bits randomly. Make sure to spread out the pieces on the whole master board so it will have bits when it is cut up.

Apply paint to blend the background to the pasted pieces. Add one color at a time and make sure to dry before applying another color so you don’t end up with mud.

Cut up the master board int 4 x 6 pieces to be made into postcards. Save the other bits for other projects, like small tags or journal cards.

Make sure you check out the other ladies videos for their Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorials.

Loved making the backgrounds. Now let’s dive into decorating all the postcards for this Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Since this is a Fall project I decided to take a walk around outside and pick up a few fallen leaves. After doing a google search on how to dry leaves I knew I could use these in this project today.

Select leaves that are not super dry and brittle. Follow instructions on how to dry leaves. Once the leaves are dry apply Glam to seal the leaves. I decided to use a glam that had lots of glitter in it so the leaves shimmer.

Adhere the leaves using the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. Apply a small amount to the backside of the leave and let it air dry for a couple of minutes. Then place the leaf on the postcard. Add something heavy on top to push it into the postcard. Set aside to dry.

Create a sentiment using a rubber stamp on kraft cardstock. Apply distress inks to the edges of the sentiment. Use 3D foam squares on the back of the sentiment and then adhere to the postcard.

Once the papers have adhered to the bags start applying one color of paint here and there. Be random, don’t think about where you are adding color. Doing one layer at a time will give it time to dry and your colors won’t get muddy.

Add Tattered Angels Mists to the bags to add another layer of color.

Supplies used for the Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial.

This is a super easy Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial. Bonus journal card tutorial too. Spray a 2.5 x 3.5-inch ivory card with Safety Orange Tattered Angels. Splatter with Almost Black. Allow the spray to dry. Stamp houses along the bottom, don’t make them straight, have fun. Select a sentiment stamp, ink and stamp in the upper left corner of the card. On a gold sheet of cardstock, stamp a witch that looks like she is flying over the moon. Fussy cut and mat with a black circle.

Apply Distress ink around the edges of the journal card. Black Soot and Walnut Stain help make the card look grungy.

Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial

On the back side of the witch image, adhere a small tuft of tulle and then adhere this element on the right side of the journal card.

Grab an envelope, think a return envelope from your junk mail. That hasn’t been used, that still has the closure flap. Trim down the envelope by cutting off each end. I this case I cut off 2 inches from each side to mak5-inch wide envelope.

Select one of the end pieces and open up the envelope, next spray with Almost Black Tattered Angels. Flip the envelope over and spray the inside with Safety Orange Tattered Angels. Apply Distress ink, Black Soot on all the edges.

Adhere the cut piece of the envelope over the return address. With the open side up to create a pocket.

Create Domino Sized witch element by layering the witch image over purple and black cardstock, create two of these. Adhere green trim behind witch on the left side of the pocket. Save the other image.

Stamp Boo to You or another sentiment on Ivory cardstock, splatter with Safety Orange and Almost Black Tattered Angels. Use a ruler and a black marker to give a border to the sentiment.  Apply distress ink around the edges. Adhere the sentiment on the pocket.

Fold envelope shut. Use the remaining image to create a closure for the envelope. Apply glue on the bottom half and position the top half over the flap, making sure not to glue the envelope shut.

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Continuing on with more Halloween Tutorials. Today I’m sharing a Halloween Journal Card Tutorial. Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Calico Collage Digital images, Stamps and more I create two fun journal cards for a Halloween Junk Journal.

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial Video.

Supplies Used for the Halloween Journal Card Tutorial.

Getting started on this Halloween Journal Card Tutorial is easy. First either purchase ATC sized cards or cut white cardstock 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Cut a piece of Ivory cardstock 3 x 3.5 inches.

Spray Tattered Angels Simply Sheer Safety Orange on both card bases. Splatter Tattered Angels Almost Black on both cards. Allow the cards to dry.

Apply Distress Ink, Walnut Stain to the edges of both card bases using a blending tool.

Using a ruler and a permanent black maker create black edges on all sides of the card bases. This will give the card a framed look with only one layer of paper.

On the 3 x 3.5 inch card base apply a thin line of Best Glue Ever using the No-Clog Writing cap around the outside edge. This will hold the spiderweb glitter tulle once the glue has turned clear. It will take a few minutes for the glue to turn clear and tacky. Once the glue is clear then apply the tulle on the card.

Stamp sentiment on a scrap of ivory cardstock. Spray with Tattered Angels Simply Sheer Safety Orange. Splatter Tattered Angels Almost Black. Apply distress ink and black marker to the edges. Adhere on the card using Best Glue Ever.

Apply spider using Best Glue Ever on top of the tulle and under the sentiment.

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

On the 2.5 x 3.5 card base apply a small amount of glue in the lower center, place tulle on top. Apply glue to the back of the Calico Collage Image cluster and put on top of the tule.

Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial

Sharing a Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial for those who have asked. When you get a new sheet of red rubber it may not be easy to understand how to mount them. Today I’ll show you how to mount the stamps using EZMount Foam from Crafter’s Companion.

Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial

Supplies used for this Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial.

When cling stamps won’t stick, it makes these hard to use. Try washing the stamp with a mild soap and water. Hand soap usually will work and clean up any dirt that is preventing the stamp from sticking to a mount.

Mounting Rubber Stamps TutorialIf after washing the stamp it still won’t stick try using a small amount of the Best Glue Ever and a paintbrush on the cling side of the stamp.

Mounting Rubber Stamps TutorialUse a small amount and use a paintbrush to spread the glue in a thin layer. Lay the stamp aside to air dry.

Mounting Rubber Stamps TutorialThe stamp will have a clear shiny look to it when the glue is dry. Place on your mounting choice and stamp away.

Got a sheet of rubber stamps that you want to mount? Check out the video, Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial.

In the video, I show how to cut the stamps apart using Fiskars Scissors coated with the Best Cleaner Ever. When cutting yours stamps make sure that you cut straight up and down. If you angle the blade of your scissors you could undercut your stamp mount and you won’t have a good impression.

Keep trimming the excess away until the image is clear of extra rubber. Mounting stamps is easier than you think, especially if using a temporary mounting system.
