Coffee Dyed Ephemera Journal
Hey, everyone! Tanja, of madebytanja, one of our amazing new Junk Journal Design Team Members, created a fabulous Coffee Dyed Ephemera Journal for us this week. As you know, we feature one new Junk Journal project each week created by one of our creative team of artists. Our Design Team Members select from the 100’s of Vintage Image Bundles on our Premium Membership Site, for their creations, in order to show you beautiful ways to use those images. We hope you will be totally inspired by this series!
Therefore, please make sure you check out the video tour at the bottom of the page…please scroll all the way down to see it. Are you ready to be inspired? I will step out of the way and let Tanja tell you all about her incredible project…
Hello, my name is Tanja from madebytanja and I am very happy to introduce you to my third journal here. I chose a special size for this journal because the spine is quite wide for the 4 signatures. I used old wrapping paper for the cover to give it a second chance. I love using elastic binding and this is how I attached my signatures. As a showstopper, I used some clusters and wrote CREATE. All the pages and accessories I used are colored with coffee, because that’s part of my style and couldn’t be missing from this journal.
I often find it difficult to design the first page. Where do you start, in the middle or rather at the beginning! I bravely took the step and started in the middle without knowing where the journey
would take me. I added some pockets to continue to have small hiding places. It mostly consists of leftover and reused materials.
I really like to make pages pretty full. I create a lot of things myself, using stamps, stickers and scraps that I then stick onto pockets or blank pages.
This is how I create tags or clusters that I can then simply insert later. I also like to use washi tape in my things to loosen things up and you can use it to create a different pattern on the page and create different highlights. When opened, this journal is filled with lots of details. Like lace, ribbons and many others.
