Dream Junk Journal
Hey, everyone! Alessandra Bordon, one of our amazing new Junk Journal Design Team Members, created a fabulous Dream Junk 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 Alessandra tell you all about her incredible project…
Hi everyone! I am Alessandra from Paper Art Alessandra. For my design team project, I created this journal to be magical, mystical, and ethereal. I hope it gives the feeling of being in a dream and, maybe, at times, a beautiful nightmare. I used several images across various different kits from The Graphics Fairy Premium Membership Site. There are mainly blue tones, but I added a lot of gold and touches of red. I think it’s the journal I’ve done that has the most Halloween flair. For the cover I used an antique copy of Pinocchio with a textured cover that I added blue and gold paint. There are a lot of pockets, flips, moving images and hidden places. It originally was green and textured; I thought it already looked beautiful the way it was, but I added stains in various shades of blue, white, and gold, and made a new spine.
For the first page, I created two flip pockets using an image from Luna the Magic Queen and the 3 Moths Card image. Inside the flip pockets are two cards. One with a beautiful image of a moon, also from Luna, and the other with a hand image from the Steampunk Aesthetic kit, both with spooky Legends From Fairy Land images as backgrounds.
On the left is a card I made with one of my favorite mystical images from Ocean Blues goddess rising from the sea – over a distressed turquoise background. On the right I used Sky Garden images: a constellation chart background, and a lovely card with a little girl sitting on the moon.
On the left is a card made using a gorgeous image of three women from Endless Skies; the background page is from Scripted Stars, printed on vellum paper, adding a transparent look. On the right is a movable card, made with an image of a little girl from Digi People; I added butterfly wings to her and a string to give her a puppet effect.
I used a page from Family Tree Genealogy. To make it a little spooky and unexpected (just like a haunting dream), I created from various Graphics Fairy Premium site kits. On the right, I created the corner tuck spot with a piece from Antique Indian Patterns. The beautiful black and white image from the card is from Sky Garden; I added watercolor to the planets to enhance the image with some brightness. On the left, on top of the Polar Hues background, I created a pocket with an image from Angelic Symphony, with a card from Clocks and Faces.
The background is from Polar Hues. I added an Ephemera Curtain image, and two cards that I created with images from Digi People Photos and Digi People 2. I added wings to the people to make them more whimsical. I placed an adhesive dot on each card back so you can move the cards.
On the right, I used a Sky Garden background with a Steampunk Apothecary balloon, also with adhesive dot on the back, so that the balloon looks like it’s moving in the air. On the left is a Celestial Images background, with a pocket made using an owl image from Vampire Lair and a bottle card from the Steampunk Aesthetic kit.
On the left is a Luna background page. I made Luna star charts into a turning card here. On the right is an Endless Skies celestial map as a background, and a little apothecary bottle card with a Poe’s Halloween blank label tuck spot.
On the left is a Blue Fairy cover page that I added a butterfly to. On the right is a flip made with an interesting image of two anthropomorphic butterflies dancing from the Masquerade Ball kit.
On the left is an Antique Indian Patterns background, and I created a pocket with a fortune telling image from the Luna kit. The card is from Palmistry Hand Fortune from the Graphics
Fairy blog. On the other side is a top flip with a large image from Sky Garden.
Take a look at the flip through below!
