Eclectic Travelers Notebook
Hey everyone. Sheena from Luna Rozu, one of our amazing NEW Junk Journal Design Team Members, created a fabulous Eclectic Travelers Notebook 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!

Greetings everyone! I do hope everyone is having a wonderful day. I can’t tell you how happy and excited I am to be part of the fabulous Graphics Fairy Design team once again. A mini intro before I begin – my name is Sheena and I create under ‘Luna Rozu’ here on social media including YouTube and Instagram. I started my junk journal journey somewhere in 2017 and haven’t looked back since. There’s always a new crafting technique or a journal theme to explore. If you’re new to this, I highly recommend subscribing to the Graphics Fairy Premium Membership website to get access to thousands of hi-res vintage images and also a full library of tutorials on how to create a junk journal from scratch, Photoshop tutorials and plenty more.
Now onto my September Design Team Project!
This month I have decided to create an eclectic grungy junk journal in the Travelers Notebook standard size. Sometimes we get a little overwhelmed when working with themes and I wanted to show that it’s okay to mix things up and still end with a beautiful piece of art. I’ve gathered quite a fair bit of my favorite images from The Graphics Fairy Premium Membership website and made them into pockets, tuck spots, ephemera pieces and more. To create that grungy look to your side tucks, you could always overlap parts of the image with packing tape or scrap paper from previous projects to make an uneven shaped tuck spot.
Also, if you don’t have access to authentic ephemera pieces, you could always find a plethora of them on The Graphics Fairy Premium Membership vintage image library. For my part, I’m always in need of vintage tags, French ephemera and floral prints. Print these on coffee stained paper and distress the edges and voila, you’ve got your very own bundle of ephemera to stuff that junk journal!
Another Key Tip… I would recommend when it comes to creating authentic looking ephemera pieces is to use different types of paper textures and weight. I recommend using butter or parchment paper and also newsprint drawing paper to print on. It will give a different look and texture to your pages.
