June's Junk Journaling

Our Facebook group continues to grow, with lots of people sharing their ideas and latest junk journaling project. Here are some of the member's projects that really took my eye in May:

and Cindy's vibrant background.

Here is the page I have created to kick start the inspiration for June. I must confess I thought this page wasn't going to make it, but managed to bring things together just about, hence the rather dramatic quote...I was having one of those days...LOL!

card from old sketchbook cover. gesso and stamping,

coloured with Big Brush Pitt Pens,

painted on Nougat Fresco paint and wiped back using PaperArtsy stencil

more stamping, some junk from clothes tag for stem,

sketched flower using Pitt pen and then add wash of black in around the flower and page. Odd buttons for centre of flower. Printed and added by quote.

Hope you do some junk journaling this month!

  6. WOW! some great journaling for all in your FB group. Really diverse too.
    Love the page you have made for June. The muted background really works with the bright yellow flower. Great idea with the clothes tag piece too. Just shows that there are no mistakes in art- this turned out great and so well worth pursuing with x
