Junk Journal July - Scraps

 Hello All.

Here's my day 9 page for Meg's junk journal challenge on Instagram. The theme for this page is Scraps. I have a box or three full of those!


As I have added some press studs to my page, I'm linking it to Halle's I've got a notion theme at Art Journal Journey.

Thanks for your visit,

Observe

 Hello Friends.

Here's my Day 8 page for Junk Journal July. The theme is Observe, and I found a great image in an old RSPB magazine of the squirrel and camera. I also found the butterflies and moth in the same mag, and used some PaperArtsy patterned tissue, and some vellum birds and a nest. I love to go bird and butterfly spotting, which links with the theme too.


If you look carefully, you'll spot some button images behind the eye, and to the left of the nest, so I'm linking up with Halle's I've got a notion theme at Art Journal Journey.

There are also things with wings, which is the current theme at Try It On Tuesday.

Thanks for visiting,

AJJ - I've got a notion

 Hi Everyone.

Today, I have a page to share for day 7 of the Junk Journal July challenge on Instagram, the prompt of which was Window. 

I'm also linking my page to Halle's theme I've got a notion at Art Journal Journey, as I've used some sewing pattern paper, black thread, and ribbon.


I just love this sweet image that I found, which is printed on vellum. I've no idea where it came from, I've had it for ages. I love the Tim holtz word stickers I found in my stash too, I thought they went perfectly with the image. I used some strips of 7 Gypsies patterned paper to create the window frame.

Thanks for dropping by,

Alison

Junk Journal July

 Hi everyone.

I'm trying to motivate myself to get back to art journaling again, so I thought I'd join in with Meg's Junk Journal July challenge on Instagram.

Here's the junk journal I made, using Amazon packaging and various papers.


I glued a downloaded list of the prompts to the first page.



Here are a few of my pages so far.

Day 1 - Spark


Day 2 - Postcard.


Day 3 - Fold.


I'll try to remember to post a few pages every few days, but my blogging is a bit erratic these days as you may have noticed 😀

Thanks for visiting,

July Art Journal Calendar

 Hello All.

Here's my art journal calendar for July. 

I'm joining in with Halle's I've got a notion theme at Art Journal Journey.


I used a button and pale turquoise paint to stamp onto ledger paper for my journaling circles. The outline stamp and letter & number stamps are from PaperArtsy. The sewing images are from a Daphne's Diary magazine.


Here's my completed June calendar.


Have a great month everyone!
