Inspire Art Mixed Media Junk Journal w/ Video Tutorials

While at the NAMTA conference with Canvas Corp Shannon Green and I make this super cute little junk mini journal and I really had fun making it, so I re-created the idea from the supplies I had on hand in my stash.  A little bit of everything went into this little book from all the companies I work with, for that is what a junk journal is all about anyway pulling things together from what you have!!!

I really pulled my inspiration from a number of places, first the little book Shannon and I made, second is the color scheme from the Creative Embellishments May Inspiration Challenge (peacock), and third the 7 Gypsies Wanderlust Open Doors papers with the keys, doors, and knockers helped add to idea for the embellishments.

Here is video Tutorial for Part 1 - Construction

Here is the video for Part 2 - Adding pages and inserts plus color using glimmer glaze and glimmer mist

Here is the video for part 3  - Embellishments and the Walk Through

Here is the peacock inspiration for this journal.
