Handmade Junk Journal

My very first junk journal. Did a lot of stitching to each page to add interest. There are three signatures and I stitched them to the spine instead of using glue or double-sided tape. Tried double-sided tape before but when the weather gets too cold, the tape came off and everything fell apart. I also used fabric for the cover. I’ve seen a lot of crafters using double-sided tape to put pages together or even for binding and it works for them. But when I tried using tape it doesn’t work and it’s not strong enough to hold everything together. So I am still searching for best glue or tape for bookbinding because I want to try to create a journal that I don’t have to do any stitching.

Mixed media

Kids School Planner + Watercolor

My daughter asked me if I can create a planner that is small and colorful. She wanted a planner that looks handmade and not something that you print out off the computer. The size of the planner is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.

I used We R Memory Keepers tab punch for each classes. For the cover decorations I used diecuts from Jillibeansoup, Shimelle and Simplestories.

Applied watercolor to each pages except for the front and back cover and used a thick scrapbook paper that has a watercolor effect.

I added some inserts to each class dividers for writing notes. I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by. 🙂

Cards

Handmade Encouragement Card

Hello friends! I am very satisfied with this project. The embellishments that I used fits together. Since I started creating mixed media cards I am so obsess with layered cards. I am still new to mixed media art but I think I am getting better at it. On my next project I am thinking of creating a card or tag that has a bright color background. I’ve been doing a lot of dark color background so I guess it’s time to try to make it a little brighter… 🙂 I hope you like this project and thank you for stopping by.
