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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!
