Junk Journal Nature by Kerstin

by Kerstin-Inga Peters

Hello everyone!

My latest ‘Junkie’ is ready, it’s slightly thicker than planned. I used a lot of Scrap FX products and tried new combinations and techniques, it was a lot of fun. Today I want to share with you the cover and some other pages which were made with the amazing

Junk Journal Kit ‘Nature’

 Do you know all the Transparencies from Scrap FX??

I love these transparencies, a lot of sayings and beautiful motifs. I used ‘Grand Old Tree’ as Cover for my journal.

The Kit contains a big envelope, that was the plain and I used  Distress spray ‘Vintage Photo’ with some stains. I glued this transparency behind the dark places of the tree, so that the glue spots were not visible.

 If you sew the journal together, you can easily pierce the transparency with the needle.

 beautiful butterflies transparency is also contained in this Nature Kit

I love this transparent effect, because you can see the page behind it.

 Friends are the flowers in the Garden of Life, a wonderful saying, that necessarily had to go in there.

The laser cut page reminds me on a bark from a tree, I glued music paper behind this cut out.

Don’t worry, be happy, this little frogs makes a good mood.

Here I used Paper Tree kraft, 

 which I cut into two parts and inked with some acrylic paints.

 On the right side you can see a glassine bag, a very good addition for a Junk Journal, because you can

collect some photo’s, pictures, but you can also hide some surprises if you want to give away your journal to a friend. I inked and stamped the background, on the foreground I used silhouette ‘Tree swing Girl’

 and a transparency again,

and again, you realize I have a penchant for this products 🙂

I used it as a bag, therefore I only glued the edges. The letter K from Bandana Alphabet was a good addition for a monogram. 

I hope I could inspire you to try your own Journal,

a lot of possibilities and fun!

Next time, I’ll show you the rest of this journal !

Happy crafting!

Kerstin
