Regency Period Traveler’s Notebook
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 Regency Period Traveler’s Notebook 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…
I wanted to go back to where I started with junk journals. A couple of years ago I discovered The Graphics Fairy shortly after I started creating junk journals. I made a little Jane Austen themed junk journal using some of the free images from thegraphicsfairy.com. The generosity of the images shared for free here on the website was amazing to me. I immediately signed up for the Premium Membership and I also submitted my journal project. Here we are almost 2 years later and I have finally created my second Jane Austen themed journal.
This is a traveler’s notebook sized journal. I have been so inspired by the journal artists who create this style of junk journal. This is a great size to work with.
For quite some time I had been wanting to set a little challenge for myself and create a journal using only one bundle and I almost did it with this journal using the Emma Bundle. You may spy one post card image on the cover and that is from the Vintage Postcard Bundle. Other than that I used only the beautiful images from the Emma Bundle. I also embellished the journal with lots of textiles – sari silks, a piece of fabric from Morocco laces.
I printed two of the rose images onto parchment paper and reduced their opacity giving them a delicate look that I love. The gentleman image – Good Day George Knightly – I printed directly onto a tea dyed page from the book Emma.
Attaching two of the bookmarks together I created a fold out hidden journaling spot. Would Emma be one to hide some of her journal writing? I think quite possibly she would. A London map and a poem titled Emma both look authentically antique. Distress ink, wear & tear created with folds, wrinkles and my scissors and printing onto tea dyed paper always does the trick.
Emma & Harriet adorn the cover. I layered the beautiful image of the two women with vintage lace and the green postcard printable and created flip out that has a hidden belly band to tuck something away. There is also a sheer embroidered fabric pocket tucked behind the flip out. Inside that pocket I placed a mini paper fan I created using the fan printable sheets in the bundle.
