Hidden Pockets Journal Page
Hey all. Featured this week is Lynne Morgado of Mockingbird and Main. She is one of our extraordinary Mixed Media Design Team members. She shares her delightful Hidden Pockets Journal Page ideas with you! Each week we highlight another Mixed Media project, created by one of the amazing Designers on our team. The designers task is 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…
I am so happy to be back with my July Design Team project for The Graphics Fairy Premium Membership Website. Sometimes the blank page or starting point of a project can be a little overwhelming. You’ve gathered your favorite images, ephemera, and maybe some lace and trims, then you say…now what?
This definitely happens to me from time to time and it can be very frustrating…when what I’ve envisioned in my mind just doesn’t work on a junk journal page. I have a really fun project to show you that I hope will inspire you. Hopefully, the next time you’re looking at the blank page of a junk journal or if you’ve been wanting to create your first junk journal you will have a few more ideas to experiment with.
I fell in love with the Royal Life Bundle as soon as I saw it, knowing I wanted to create a junk journal with the images and ephemera pieces included in the bundle. I love creating ring bound or lace bound styles of junk journals, including layered and collaged pages with vintage laces and linens. Certainly I knew that using the Royal Life Bundle would be an ideal style of junk journal.
Here I’ve created one page to start my journal and I wanted to share it with you. Using six book pages sewn together I created a base page to work on. To the page I have added a layer of lace and a vintage doily to create pockets.
Above are a few of the images I collaged onto the pages to create more interest. I then added the various journaling cards and tags that I created from the printable sheets available in the Royal Life Bundle: Royalty Bookmarks, Royalty Playing Cards, and Royalty Altered Altoid Tins are depicted.
I have also embellished the pages using torn pieces of the wash tape printables found here on the Ephemera Collection Bundle.
You will see how I create this style page and give you a couple of ideas for one of my favorite elements in a junk journal: hidden pockets. That tutorial is coming soon to the Premium Membership site.
