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.

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.

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.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Base postcard by Bea

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.

Select a few buttons and sequins and using the Best Glue Ever, adhere to the postcard. Tie a small bow using tiny jute or cord and adhere with the Best Glue Ever.

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.

Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial

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!

Making all the Halloween items for this Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial was a lot of fun. So much fun that I ended up making kits for others to create their own. Check these out in my shop.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Let’s have some fun today with a Mixed Media Pages Tutorial. I like to sit and play with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Acrylic Paint, stencils and book pages. Creating a batch of mixed media pages to use in various projects. Being able to say, I made that! Today I’ll show you how to create your own Mixed Media Pages.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Supplies Used for the Mixed Media Pages Tutorial.

Time to have fun and begin this Mixed Media Pages Tutorial. Prepare your work surface by using a non-stick craft mat. It saves a lot of clean up time using one of these mats. I have several in my stash so I don’t have to wash these every single time I use them.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Select a book that has a good paper that will hold up to getting wet with paint and Tattered Angels. Look for new books at Dollar Tree or other places. Old book pages can be brittle so do a test on a sheet before you commit to using all of the pages from that book.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Choose a stencil or two or other objects to make marks on the papers. The idea is to play!

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Apply Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists or Acrylic paint through the stencils. Go crazy and have fun! The idea is to get color on pages that you can use in other projects. My pages were used for a couple of projects. A mixed media Junk Journal and I also used some of the pages on a postcard swap. These pages can become pockets, truck spots, new pages for a journal and more.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Try moping up the sprays on the stencil by laying another page on top and pressing down. The spray on the stencil will transfer to the page and give a new look. Love seeing how things change when mopping up.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Make your own stencils too. Using my Cricut I created stencils that are unique and can’t be found in a store. So each project is unique and unusual.

Mixed Media Pages Tutorial

Having a variety of pages made for projects is much like having a large stash of scrapbook papers. Lots of choices!

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial

Welcome, everyone. Today I’m sharing a Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial using Calico Collage digital images, old book page, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and items I cut using my Cricut. This Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial was made for a swap. Hope they like what I made.

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial.

Let’s begin the Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial Video. Select a piece of 4 x 6 ivory cardstock and cut the corners off to give it a tag shape. Select a page out of a book I used a bible and cut it to 3.75 x 5.75 inches and trim the top two corners to create a tag shape.

Select an image from the Calico Collage Digital sheet and enlarge to 2.5 inches. Print on cardstock or print on copy weight paper and then back with cardstock. The Silhouette is a great tool to help with cutting images out, especially if cutting a lot of images. Using the Silhouette Software I duplicated the image and then flipped on so there were two views of the same image.

Apply Distress Ink to the edges of the tag and book page. Then apply distress ink to the edges of the round image and words.

Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through a stencil on the book page. Allow the page to dry. Adhere the book page to the tag base using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever and the No-Clog Writing Cap.

Cut a honeycomb using Cricut at 4 x 6 inches. I created the honeycomb by using a hexagon, duplicating, then welding to create the honeycomb. Save your work when you create a new element in Cricut, saves a lot of time! Adhere the honeycomb to the tag base, cut the corners to match.

Apply a small amount of glue to the back of the 3.5 x 3.5 brown fabric and adhere in the center of the tag base. Adhere the lace on the left side of the square.

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial

Sew zig-zag stitches around the tag base and the Calico Collage image in the center.

Apply words using the Best Glue Ever. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and pull a strip of fabric through and tie a knot.

Last, apply Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint using the Medium No-Clog Writing cap to the Calico Collage image.

This was a fun Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial, I hope that you enjoyed it and are inspired to create!

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.

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.

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.

Mixed Media Paper Bag Junk Journal

On August 22 I created a Mixed Media Paper Bag Junk Journal live on YouTube. This post is showing the finished journal and I’ll also share the video where I made the journal.

After watching Kylie’s video I decided that I would pull a few supplies and make a Mixed Media Paper Bag Junk Journal live on YouTube. We all have fears that we can’t create. this Mixed Media Paper Bag Junk Journal is the perfect project for someone that is unsure. It is about playing with the materials and not worrying about how it turns out.

Mixed Media Paper Bag Junk Journal

The base of the journal is three 12 x 6 lunch sacks or paper bags. On these bags, I adhered various scraps of papers. Then added layers of acrylic craft paint.

Mixed Media Paper Bag Junk Journal

Once the paint was dried I then stamped over all the layers to add another layer of texture.

Then the decorating of the pages begun by adding stickers, scraps of paper, and images from Calico Collage.
