Urban Structures Junk Journal
Hey everyone. Anna Hollingworth of Leximbue Journals, our amazing NEW Junk Journal Design Team Member, created a fabulous Urban Structures 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!Therefore, please make sure you check out the video tour at the bottom of the page…please scroll all the way down to see it. Are you ready to be inspired? I will step out of the way and let Anna introduce herself, and tell you all about her lovely project…
Hello everyone this is Anna Hollingworth from LeximbueJournals. For those of you who do not know me, I studied the Dark Ages and I make Dark Age, Medieval and Historical themed journals. I also love romantic, rustic, vintage, fairytale and mythical themes. I live in the UK, very near London in a village by the River Thames .
A big thank you to Karen and Emily who chose me to work with their Design Team for their Premium site! To Lisa, who is a great support and to the other ladies who are in the team for their kind welcome!
For my first project, I have created a journal themed Urban Structures. It reflects the old time architectural style. I wanted it to appear rustic and weathered but also sturdy for everyday use. This book has been handmade by me.
The images that I decided to use, support the main theme with the right colors and tone, creating a combination of elements that enhance the journal.
I chose ivory card 100 gsm paper for the ephemera and pockets. The paper for the journal is 120 gsm coffee and tea dyed by myself and it is great for any kind of project, including journaling,collaging, painting and drawing and any other type of mixed media. The images were printed on an inkjet printer and they are clear and bright.
