French Blue Junk Journal
Hey, everyone! Heather Naggy of Ruby and Pearl xo, one of our amazing Junk Journal Design Team Members, created a fabulous French Blue 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 Heather tell you all about her lovely project!
Hello! Today I am sharing a junk journal I created for The Graphics Fairy Premium Site for the month of May 2021. I hope you will enjoy having a peek! I decided to use the color blue as my theme for this month as it is my favorite color. I really love all of the French Ephemera the premium site has available. I am pretty sure I always choose from those bundles no matter what journal I am creating!
This journal is a one signature journal in a Cahier size. I love creating junk journals because you can make them as simple or as elaborate as you like… I tend to lean toward a more simple journal style. I really like be able to use my journals to write or sketch in.. so I tried to add interest to each page by adding tucks and flip outs in typical junk journal style but still allowing space for writing.
I created a floating pocket for this journal from some of the Graphics Fairy French papers… I love that it can be tucked anywhere in the journal and used as a place to keep something special. Most of time when I create tags I almost always leave a blank space on the back for journaling. I think it makes it fun to be able to add patterns on the front but then be able to flip them over for writing. It creates a really fun and eclectic journal once you write in it.
I really loved using all the different shades of blue for this journal. If you ever are creating a journal and you don’t know where to start.. Start with your favorite color! It will inspire you every time!
