Yellow Rose Adventure Travelers Notebook Junk Journal
I've been on a mission this month to create a journal every day. Take a look at this Yellow Rose Adventure Travelers Notebook Junk Journal I made. I love this Botanical Banners Set by Brutus Monroe. These roses are so beautiful!
Back on July 1st I shared how to make a watercolor back ground using Surface Inks. I had a scrap of paper left over where I was experimenting. I took four colors and smashed these on a piece of acetate then sprayed with alcohol and then swiped the paper through the ink. That is how I got the color for the cover! I then trimmed this down to be 8.25 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide. Then I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl. It gives it such a pretty glow over the inks, don't you think so?
While the cover was drying I decided that I would create a collage element on the cover. Digging around in my scraps I found this really cool textured black paper, a torn page from an old Bible and some cheesecloth. Then I stamped the rose image from the Botanical Banners set on white cardstock using Brutus Monroe Detail ink - Raven.
To add color to the roses I decided to use my Chameleon Pens. I love how easy this are to blend and make such a beautiful image. Then I used Tulip Glitter Paint to add sparkle to the rose. Once the paint was dry I fussy cut the roses and then it was time to start creating the cover.
I layered the black paper, the page from an old bible. Then I laid the cheese cloth down and used Brutus Monroe Craft Glue to adhere the Roses on top.
Then I took the journal cover to my sewing machine and added a zigzag stitch around the edge of my collage. I found some Washi tape with words in my stash and decided to add those to the cover along with a couple other black printed washi.
To finish the cover I added Black Detail Ink around the edges. I like how it gives it a grunge look.
The inside cover needed a little something to cover up the stitching. I used another torn page from an old Bible and a piece of cardstock that was sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists - Chartreuse.
For the inside of the Yellow Rose Adventure Travelers Notebook Junk Journal I selected 11 sheets of paper that I cut and folded to be 8.25 inches tall and 8.50 inches wide. On the front of most of these I stamped the Roses again in Zest Surface ink. I like how it is subtle and a person can write over the image if they choose. Each page was then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists - Chartreuse.
Once all the pages were decorated I used the Pamphlet Stitch to bind the pages together. A pretty yellow ribbon was slipped through the waxed linen cord on the cover of the spine to tie the journal closed.
Since I created a few pockets in the journal I decided that I needed to create a few journal cards.
Finding a scrap of paper I cut this to 3 inches by 4 inches. I used my MISTI to line up where I wanted the Rose image from the Botanical Banners stamp set and stamped with Zest Surface ink. Then I used the same yellow ribbon and did a zigzag stitch on the top.
Junk Journals are a great way to use up that stash of scraps or odd papers you have on hand. I love seeing what I can create with these left over bits. I hope that you are inspired to create a junk journal today because of the Yellow Rose Adventure Travelers Notebook Junk Journal. I will continue to create journals for the month of July. Feel free to follow me on Instagram to see all of the journals I create this month.
