Custom Junk Journals

I've been having a great time making more junk journals. I received a custom order for three, and I love making them interesting and different. Here they are. 

Journal 1

Journal 2

Journal 3

Vintage flowers and burlap

Lace Bows

More flowers, vintage buttons, and beads.

A diagonal approach.

Crinkle ribbon and a strong focal point.
Clasps from a sweater.

Each page has something special. 

Tag with a grungy heart.

Tag close-up with clear embossing powder.

Tag with gouache, Pan Pastels, and India ink.

Different tag.
Another tag with embossing.
Hand Painting with Doodling.

Vintage Bead Adornments.

Clear Embossing.

Chevron crackle paint
I used my for the above chevron with my Chevron Tag Stencil (available in my Etsy shop).

A grungy, sparkly star with burlap.

A chipboard key and crinkle ribbon.

Stamped dots.

Glass bead gel, using my Stretched Tag Stencil.

An inspired word from my Funky Words Stencil.

And as always, a key.

And vinage lace.

Again, using my Funky Words Stencil and some paint.

And molding paste with Viva Decor silver paste, using my Laced Birds Stencil.

More vintage beads and lace.

Perfect Pearls with stamps.

And more Perfect Pearls with stamps and paint.

Pan Pastels over canvas, with a little bit of doodling.

And, peeled gesso, using my peeled gesso technique.

And more peeled gesso with some washi tape.

Basic stamping.

And more basic stamping. I love this particular alphabet stamp.

And, you gotta love some Stickles.

More Washi tape.

And, some more stamped, peeled gesso.

And, I couldn't resist another vignette picture using my Grandmother's toy sewing machine. If there was a fire in my house, and I had time to grab something (and we all know you shouldn't take ANY time to grab anything), assuming my hubby and dog were already out of the house, I'd grab this.

And, if you like what you see, and I'm sold out in my Etsy shop, feel free to convo me for a custom order.
Thanks again for looking! Fondly, Tami
