Hey everyone. Robin Dudley Howes, one of our amazing NEW Junk Journal Design Team Members, created a fabulous Halloween 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!

KEEP CALM AND CARRY A WAND- Junk Journal I love Halloween, it’s been my favorite holiday since I was a kid and to this day, I still dress up and decorate my house for the occasion. I chose many images from Graphics Fairy premium membership site to make a journal for a witch who collects bugs and likes to sew. She’s a crafty witch! The cute image of the little girl is the focal I chose for the cover and can be found in the CUTE RETRO HALLOWEEN bundle. In fact I used quite a few images through out from this bundle.
Making the cover took me about 3 days but it was so fun. Many layers of lace, ephemera and paper went into the final design. The journal foundation is a sturdy, accordion style. I first glued down vintage music paper and then added one or 2 signatures to each panel, layering as I went along
As I created the journal, a story presented it self and I decided the witch that used this journal was crafty and liked to sew and collect bugs. I used the SEWING EPHEMERA bundle, complete with vintage buttons, spools of vintage trim and a needle envelope as well as a real butterfly specimen using the ENTOMOLOGISTS FIELD GUIDE bundle.
Instead of making lots of pages I focused more on envelopes and pockets.
I loved how this moon face turned out from the BLACK LACE AND TRIMS bundle.
I used many, many images, and premade printables, from the graphics fairy premium membership site. I don’t think I could ever run out of inspiration with all there is to choose from. I list what I
used below. I hope you were inspired by my journal and I invite you to check out my YouTube channel to see it fully. Thanks Graphics Fairy for allowing me to showcase your beautiful images in this fun medium!
