Hello again crafty friends!! This month I was sent the Blue Fern Studios Jane Memoirs Bundle.
I knew instantly that I wanted to create a junk journal. I haven’t made very many journals before so I thought I would do a small series of the process for beginners since I’m pretty much a beginner as well.
Let’s Get Started with Blue Fern Studios
First, I started by gathering up some of the Blue Fern Studio supplies I thought would be great for this journal. Once I chose what I would be using and little extra just in case, I decided to coffee dye and tea dye some of the papers I gathered up.
Once I was done with the process of coffee/tea dyeing, I was excited to use the clear stamps from the collection. So, that was my next step in the process of creating this junk journal.
Get to Stamping
These below, are the clear stamps that come with this Blue Fern Studio Bundle from Fotobella. The first one is “London Souvenir” & the second one is “Registered Letter”.
I stamped some of the ephemera, and also stamped on the dyed papers, music sheets, tags, folders. Also, I love the idea of stamping on some small tea bags that I had in my stash. A favorite product I like to use when creating anything with a vintage theme is the Tim Holtz Kraft Glassine Paper. But, once you stamp on this paper you need to immediately have to heat set it with your heat tool because it will smear and will not dry.
Note: I didn’t take photo’s of every piece of Blue Fern ephemera , papers that I would be using so I can keep a little bit as a surprise and share it on my final post.
I know this was a short post but I am trying to do this project as a series this month. Hopefully that works out. I will be back next week with another step in how to create a junk journal. So stay tuned!!
P.S. Don’t forget to take a look at this amazing bundle by Blue Fern Studios that is at an amazing price!
