Ps. 100:5 " For the Lord is good: his mercy is everlasting: and his truth endureth to all generations."
I have been missing from the party the last few weeks because I have a one track mind. I don't know how Elizabeth does all her posts and projects! Anyway, I have been working on a project.
I have never done a junk journal before. This month I am taking part in DearJulieJulie Junk Journal Challenge. It is a stash buster challenge. That appealed to me because I have a lot of stash to bust!
We were challenged to create a page idea, tag idea and embellishment idea for each of the letters in Stash Buster.
A any paper pack
S strips of paper
H hoarded paper
B book pages
U unused envelopes
T tools not used for a long time
E embellishments made from scratch
R recycle bin
Here is what I made the cover from, a hoarded $ tree composition book. I have several and don't know why. So I watched Dear Julie's you tube on how to make a junk book cover out of it.
I had some hoarded Tuesday Morning adhesive fabric, and cut it down for the cover.
Here is the finished cover with everything in it. It really got full with only 11 pages. Now, some of you I am sure have made these before, but remember it is my first. I used two signatures for only 11 pages. I think I would use thinner paper next time, because Julie says 20 works for one signature. Oh, and if you are like me and didn't know what a signature is, it s a group of papers sewn together. And I didn't realize when I began but 11 page ideas using two facing pages make 44 pages! Who knew. I had no idea what I was doing when I began this project.
The lace was hoarded from possibly a long ago garage sale, and the crocheted flower with button in the middle is off on a sweatshirt. I have more of them. I am always taking appliques and sewn on items off of shirts.
Since stamping is my first love, I created backgrounds with stamping on some of my pages.
