Garden Party Junk Journal
Hey guys, once again one of our fabulous Junk Journal Design Team Members, Lynne Morgado, has created a fabulous junk journal for us. She shares her incredible Garden Party 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 am back to share with you my July Design Team Junk Journal project. I am always inspired by what I see other artists and junk journal makers create and this wee little book in a tin is something I’ve wanted to try for quite some time. As they say “Good things come in small packages.”
I could never choose a favorite type of image, but I will say the botanical print images are at the top of my list. They are so versatile and can be used to create journaling cards, tags, pockets, tuck spots – you name it. I am particular to those botanical prints that have the flower’s Latin names on them. I have tucked several in this little chunky journal.
I also went back to one of my favorite bundles: In the Garden. I think the labyrinth and garden structures images from that bundle are so unique. The textile wrap around style cover I created in a similar style to a snippet roll. I sewed bits and pieces of doilies and laces together, adding a green sari silk ribbon closure.
I printed several of the laces and frames from the Vintage Paper Lace Bundle to create tiny tuck spots throughout the journal. I thought it was the perfect miniature alternative to using real laces and textiles.
