Theatre Hardcover Junk Journal
Hey guys. One of our superb Junk Journal Design Team Members, Lynne Morgado from Mockingbird and Main, is back with us again this week. Lynne created a pretty ‘entertaining’ Theatre Hardcover Junk Journal for the month of December.This journal is meant to entertain you and unlock your creativity. The lock on the cover symbolizes that and it is also like opening a door to a theater. As you probably know by now, each week we are featuring a different Junk Journal created by some world-class artists. We hope you are being inspired by this series! I will allow Lynne tell you all about her fascinating book in her own words…
The Play’s The Thing
Hello everyone, I am so happy to be back with my December Design Team Junk Journal called “The Play’s The Thing.” I did take it a little out of context from our friend Hamlet. It is a Theatre/Playhouse themed Hardcover Junk Journal with just under 150 pages and three signatures.
I am saying that the theater is fascinating, entertaining, fantastical, magical, ethereal and so much more…It is the thing! More than TV and movies, the theater brings you up close and personal to new worlds and experiences.
I was inspired by the funky blue vintage upholstery fabric that I had in my stash. Isn’t it rich and textured?
While there are references to Shakespeare this journal is primarily a vintage theater themed junk journal. Complete with characters, colorful ribbons, music and more… Above is a page from a French textbook.
Image Bundles I Used
I used many images from the Theatrical Characters bundle. The rich colors and amazing detail makes the journal come to life and gives you so many beautiful things to look at as you flip through the pages.
I embellished throughout the journal with dyed seam bindings in similar rich colors.
In the Heritage Wallpaper bundle I envisioned stage backdrops and theater architecture.
My end papers, as well as some other interesting details within the journal, are from the Marbled End Papers bundle. These marbled papers are so versatile and lovely to look at.
From the Woodland Walk bundle I used the Blue Nouveau Floral Pattern in a couple of different ways. The blues and florals in it are wonderful. All the papers are tea dyed. There is plenty of room for writing, reminiscing and dreaming.
Extra TGF Ephemera Added
I’ve included lots of journaling tags, cards, and assorted ephemera. The various ATC Background Printable Sheets on the Premium Membership Website are perfect for this.
