Last week, I finished the second episode in my latest Junk Journal With Me series on YouTube. This episode once again has a very horticulture subject, but instead of veggies I focused on my budding plants and flowers!
I combined a lot of techniques and supplies — coffee-dyed paper, sewing, and vintage printables, vintage stationary, and Daphne’s Diary cutouts. I also fussy cut a ton of butterflies from an old We R Memory Keepers paper pad called Wildflower. These little guys were the perfect accent to a few pages.
I had the best bird-themed Daphne’s Diary pages to document our new hummingbird feeder. These pages came from an old Daphne’s Diary planner. I added some zig-zag sewing to a page tab I glued to the top of the picture.
I created a lot of pockets, which seems to be a new obsession of mine! The first pocket is behind this picture of a new oriole feeder. The top of the picture is adorned with a Daphne’s Diary tag, some vintage lace, and a piece of wood veneer I distressed. The pocket is stuffed full with a vintage memo tag and Tim Holtz bird ephemera.
The second pocket is from a coffee-dyed piece of cardstock I folded. Inside, I tucked the vintage bridge scorepad from my Etsy store. I also added a decorative stitch to the left and glued some fussy cut butterflies and and a Crate Paper vellum terrarium.
I created a flip out page with some more paper from the Wildflower paper pad. I reserved the middle of the vintage stationary for journaling. I hate my writing, so I always leave that part for the end!
If interested, I made a video on my YouTube channel of the whole process! I am really enjoying these junk journaling sessions. I hope you are too!
Till next time,
