Cutting, gluing, scribbling, writing, marbling, folding, and using paper in all kinds of ways is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. Come join me and let’s craft and create using cheap and/or fancy papers!
Today I am sharing the finished Summer Junk Journal (no 1) in all it’s glory. I love how it feels in my hands, and how it looks with the decorated and embroidered cover. I like how the soft fabric art piece changes when you make it into a hard cover for a journal like this, […]
Do you need a relaxing, fun and inspiring project to do, then this is for you! It is called an En masse Glue Book, and each spread has a specific image theme that everyone gets to choose for themselves. Having a themed glue book is new to me, but I liked filling it a lot! […]
I made a quick tips video about my favorite tape, because I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before to you guys? It’s called “Magic Tape”, and I personally think it’s the best one for using in journals if you want something that is durable, archival – and almost invisible! I have been using it […]
The truth is, most of us discover where we are heading when we arrive. Bill Watterson Before summer I bound myself another Art Journal with watercolor papers and a cloth cover. I wanted to make this last summer, but never got around to finishing one. But this year I was better prepared, and had worked […]
I have found a super fun glue book project that is just too good to keep to myself! I am sharing my inspirations today – and a video tutorial so that you can get started too! En masse is French and means “in a group; all together” or “in a body : as a whole”; here a […]
How do you put a Christmas junk journal together? How do you decide what cover to use and what papers to include as pages? Here are some of my thought process about just that. It’s not a tutorial, but hopefully you’ll find the video inspiring. Last year I wanted to do a series on YouTube […]
December is getting near, and in December I usually do some journaling in a Traveler’s Notebook December Daily / Christmas Journaling type of thing. I have listed a couple of the same type of junk journals I make for myself in the shop, and they are delightful! If you haven’t picked out a journal to […]
A big, yummy pile of journals has hit the shop again and I wanted to share all of them with you guys in the hope that maybe you’ll be inspired or even feel the urge to buy one. In any case, I am having so much fun doing these videos where I talk junk journals […]
This weekend I shared how I stitched and composed the textile cover of this journal, but today already, let’s look at some of the pages inside this Art Journal [with a video flip-through of the finished book] that I made for myself to use as a “summer journal” – started June 2021 and will continue […]
Before I sent my handmade postcards away last year I got in my head that I’d do a little quick video showing all of them (and the stamps I bought) and talk about them instead of writing a long blog post about them. Now I have edited it and I want to share it with […]
One of the things I really love when it comes to paper crafts and making is creating notebooks in different forms. I make all kinds of journals, for myself and for sale. I used to sell via Etsy, but ended my affair with them last year. So this year it is finally time to experiment […]
