"Junk" Art Journals - My Little Red Book

I'm inspired by Margarete Miller's YouTube video that shows her little book dedicated for Vintage collage.
Link to Margarete's YouTube: MargareteMiller Vintage Gluebook Process

SO - I have started one. I simply must go with the inspiration - it's so much fun! I have dedicated a small red writing book for this project. My photo shows the front cover, the inside cover photo, the start "here we go" page, and my first collage. 

My theme: flower vase---then prompt points: music, ferns, kitchen, color blue.
I tore out one page for every three to make room for the collage adds.
Enjoy the video and start your collage book :)

Paint Chip Collage Challenge

I played with paint chips in the Paper Possibilities Crazy Crafters Facebook group during March. Loved this project! The paint chip colors inspired me card after card. The cards are 2 3/4"W by 4 1/4"H.

I have several left in my stack - I'm eager to begin another set.

In order to do more collage on each piece I glued tissue paper to each back. More fun awaits!

Envelop Book Fun


I had a mound of envelop cut-outs from old calendars and decided to finally fold and stitch them together. (I stitched by machine)  Storage of bits and pieces for paper craft projects can become quite a mess at times.

"I know the perfect piece for this - now why can't I find it!"
This layout is quick and easy. You might enjoy seeing this video from Treasure Books:

It's time to share three more weekly collages done in my #cwplanner earlier this year. By reading the bullet prompts in the first box, bottom of the right side page, you'll be better able to follow why I chose the elements I did for each collage.

Themes:  #1: Pen & Ink   #2 Numbers & Notes   #3 Art Retreat Lake Arrowhead

Paper Crafting: Inspiration Notebook

My Inspiration Notebook,  aka a "Trashy Junk Journal" on YouTube by Margarete Miller in 3 parts: Part 1=   

It is a journal of my favorite pics and inspirations consisting of five signatures. The 6" X 9" cover is made from an old legal sized heavy duty file folder.
After getting the main graphic pages folded and bound, I'm now set to glue inserts here and there, including notes and lace and whatever calls to me to be added!
I never imagined making a journal like this out of my many favorite magazine tear-outs! I bet you'll be inspired too by watching the video link above.

Art Bullet Journal for March 2021

I'm using the Art Journal in this way for page starts 1-6. Full month on pg 1, added a paper pocket to the bottom of pg 2 for holding day-by-day do lists. Page 3 is a chart for weekly reminders & commitments, with special dates and goals on pg 4. Page 5 is an art page with a triangle pocket in the top corner.
I'm liking my new monthly set-up. Please share your tips - we'd all like to see them.
