For this months challenge I decided it would be fun to make a Junk Art Journal.
This is the cover for my journal.
I used an image from Kenny K for my cover to my book along with two die cut clocks and die cuts from an old die cut by Tim Holtz for Sizzix called alterations.
. The paper pack that inspired my project was my friend at PipArt and her companies line of paper called ShokART Sisters Collection. A lot the papers I used for the project were from their collection along with papers from my stash.
This is how I put together the art journal together. I got the directions from a you tube video by Nina Ribena called Use your scraps 2022 . She also has a number of other videos on Art Journal ideas.
This is how I constructed the box.
The inside of the journal was lined with some wrapping paper that I added some gesso to tone down the colour.
This is the inside cover of my book and I used a steampunk bird from the paper pack, added a wooden crown and a large gears die cut along with other little details.
This is the last page of the book and the inside cover. I used a wood steampunk mannequin that I dressed in the birthday paper and used an antique paint technique on the clogs and gears. I also added a necklace and a metal belt to the dress.
The beads I create for the back of the book. I used some wooden beads, gears and clots that I created an antique finish on.
A couple of pages I created for the journal. I have lots of pages to fill over the next little while. Lots of creative real estate in my journal.
I added some ATC's I made using an antique finish and metal computer parts.
I created this page using a napkin, wooden frog, stencil, die cut and butterflies.
Thank you for stopping by and have a creative month. Hope you will join us this month.
