French Blue Junk Journal
Hey guys, once again one of our fabulous Junk Journal Design Team Members, Lynne Morgado, has created an amazing junk journal for us. She shares her incredible French Blue Junk Journal with you! Each week we spotlight another Mixed Media project, created by one of the amazing Designers on our team. The designers are tasked to use images from our Premium Membership Site to provide inspiration for your own projects. Be sure to check out her Show and Tell Video below. Please scroll down to the end of this post to see her video. Be prepared to be inspired! I will now allow Lynne to tell you all about her art in her own words…
Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well. I am excited to tell you about my February Design Team Project.
This junk journal definitely took on a life of it’s own. I was initially inspired by a piece of fabric that I had in my stash which I used to create the cover and with that I was going to do a lot of birds and blues in the journal.
I started my window shopping in the many French bundles available on the Premium Membership site. I found more and more receipts that I loved and just had to use in this journal. There is just something so beautiful and fascinating about antique French receipts.
To that end, in this journal I did something I don’t think I’ve ever done using smaller ephemera images. I printed the French receipts full-size borderless onto 8.5″ x 11″ paper and used them as pages. I have been so inspired by other journal makers on the Design Team to enlarge and use images as full pages. The receipt images printed so amazingly clear & crisp at that larger size.
From the Vintage Postcards bundle (which is another of my favorite bundles), I printed some of the postcards onto cardstock and then embellished and collaged them. The postcards are a perfect backdrop to create little pieces of collage art.
