Hello and welcome!
I am sharing with you ideas using vintage scraps to create a signature which will fit Eileen's Wrapped Journal. It is a photo heavy post! I am sharing how I start the process by making a small collection of pieces which I can then add into the signatures when I am ready, rather than making a page at a time.
I have folded a sheet of the dyed paper into four and used die cuts to cut out labels and tags - again a quick way to get your junk journal stash started.
.... and then gone through my bits and pieces box to find other little bits and pieces of stamped scraps and saved pieces which I can use. You might not use them all, but you have them all to hand.
I have used more of the tea dyed paper to make these little envelopes from a die cut. I have layered bits of old text paper, ribbon, flowers, tickets and buttons over some background stamping.
I store everything in a box so when I am ready to create my signatures I can have a grand decorating session!
I have included three signatures in my junk journal and decorated the front covers of two of them with vintage elements built up around a glassine envelope.
...... and a small tag and button.
The whole collaged envelope can then be adhered to the front cover of the signature.
And now to the rest of the pages.
A single stamped tag can act as a "holder" for other tickets and labels.
I made two very similar signatures and the third is slightly smaller and contains more labels and tags.
I do hope that these photos give you some ideas and also the way I work in preparing a box of bits and pieces BEFORE I start my junk journal. I do this also for non-vintage junk journals.
Thank you so much for joining me and remember to check back to Eileen's blog HERE for inspiration for more ideas for junk journal insides!
