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.

Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial

Lots of fun to share today with a Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial and more. This was one of those super fun projects.

Supplies Used for the Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial.

This is a super fun project. Let’s get started on the Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial. Begin by selecting paper bags, acrylic paint, stamps, and mixed media papers.

Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial

Have fun applying the mixed media papers to the bags. Don’t think about where you are placing the bits of papers, just have fun adding color here and there. Flip each bag over and add papers to the other side too.

Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial

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.

Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial

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

Break out those stamps and add more interest to the bags. In this step, you will want to think about the direction of the bags and your stamps if they are directional images.

Adhere Calico Collage images and handmade embellishments to the bag. Decorating the bags with all the bits and pieces is a lot of fun!

Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial

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.

Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial

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.

Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial

Add journal card to the pocket once the glue has dried. Enjoy your work!

Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Sometimes you just need more writing space. That is why I’m sharing this Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial with you. The cards in this tutorial are going inside a paper bag journal. Lots of room to write when you make cards this large.

Supply List for the Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

This is a very easy Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial. Begin by cutting the card base, 5.75 b 11.5 inches. This will fit inside a 6 x 12 paper sack opening. Next, select a book page that measures about 6 x 9 inches.

Use a Stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the book page. Experiment with different colors and stencils to get the look you like the best. Dry with a heat tool or allow drying. Trim the book page to 5.5 inches square and save the extra bit and cut down to 5.75 – this will become a pocket later.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Day 29 of #useitupjuly and I’m sharing a Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Going through my stash and creating junk journal pages in various colors. Since I just completed the Dark Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial and had supplies out I made the light blue page.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial Video

Supplies used for the Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

For this Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial, I begin by referring back to my Napkin Embellishment Tutorial. Where I used a glue stick to adhere a napkin to a piece of paper. Separate the layers of the napkin so that only the design remains. Coat a piece of paper – like the dictionary page with a glue stick, work quickly and be generous but not crazy. Lay the napkin face down and then press the page covered with the glue stick on the backside of the napkin. Press gently and it should adhere.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Next, add stitching around the edge and add a scrap of fabric for a tab. This page could be left as it is with the pretty napkin, but let’s add a little pocket. Layering scraps of paper and adding the digital images from Calico Collage along with the words from my shop create a pocket. Adhere on three sides of this piece to hold a tag or two.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Flip the page over and attach a pocket to the left side. In my case, it was a leftover piece from an old project that I didn’t use. Check out my Pocket tutorials for other ideas to use for pockets.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Attach a folded piece of paper on the right side to create a pocket. Add another piece of paper to make the top layer thicker if necessary. On my page I wanted it to be the same shade of blue so I attached a piece of text weight paper after stamping and adding stickers.

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Fill the pockets with tags and booklets to journal upon and enjoy!

Light Blue Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Making these pages has been a great way to use up leftover pieces. I like finding ways to use things instead of storing a partial sheet of stickers. Have fun using it up!

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Day of 22 #useitupjuly and today’s project is a Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial. Several members of my Facebook group Friendly Junk Journal People wanted tutorials on different pages. This is one of many junk journal pages that I’ll be sharing.

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial Video

Supplies used for the Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The goal is to use up all the bits and pieces for the Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial that I can. Thought that sharing how to make individual junk journal pages might inspire each of you to use up your stash.

When I have leftover bits I try to sort by color. Using 12 x 12 clear scrapbook pockets to keep everything in order and easy to see. Before I cut a large sheet of paper for a project I look in the pockets to see if there is something I can use. Don’t want to create more scraps.

Images from Magazines and Calendars are a great source to add color to junk journals. Trim out of the magazine or calendar and use any way you like. If there is writing on the back side of the image you want, then add another piece of paper. Notebook paper is a great back and it gives you lines to write upon.

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

White and Ivory lace is great to have in the stash. The lace can be sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to match a project. It cuts down on having too many colors of lace that you may not use all of the time. But white or ivory lace is easy to work into a project as it can be changed.

Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial Purple Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Think outside the box when making journal pages. It’s okay to splice two pieces together to get the size you need. Remember there is no wrong way to make a junk journal page.

7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book

Day 21 of #useitupjuly, today sharing 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book times two! It was so fun making the Embellishment books a week ago that I decided I would make two more in a different theme. Using lots of items from my stash and several from 7Gypsies I share two books that were made.

7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book

7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book Video.

Supplies used in the making of the 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book.

This is the Embellishment Junk Book Tutorial I made on July 12. It features using the Frankenpages technique to create the cover and pages. This video also shows how the cover book was constructed and all the goodies inside the first two I made.

The 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book is a great way to use up scraps and items that you have had for a while, or that you have duplicates of in your stash.

When these books were made I was going through my stash and found where I had cut items out of the 7Gpysies booklets and out of sheets of images. Being able to find a use for the leftover pieces helps me a lot!

7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book

As an artist and crafter, I tend to find reasons to keep things that might be trash to others. The postcards used for the pages is one of those items. But having those pieces to use as a base helped these 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Books come together.

Once I got started it was hard to stop with just one book! lol I have supplies to make dozens of these little books. Creating with a theme helped me focus on the creation of the first 7Gypsies Embellishment Junk Book. When it was done I realized that I had enough to make a second with similar items.

Take a look at the stash you have. Find those items that you love and put them to use. We spend so much time shopping and collecting that we forget to create! My hope is that you are inspired to create after seeing one of my videos.
