Jean, I forgot to mention, your zentangles are absolutely gorgeous.  I love, love the blue.

Very pretty journal, Kandie...what exactly is a junk journal? I thought it was made with junk mail, but yours doesn't look that way. What did you use for the base/body of it?

Jean, there are different opinions on what a junk journal is exactly.  Purists will say that it is 100% made of junk (trash), but I think the general opinion is that it is just anything you want to throw in - junk or what would normally go in the trash bin, ephemera, pretty papers, envelopes, photos, tickets, etc.  So more of a cross between a true junk journal and a scrapbook without a theme or specific event.

My junk journals are filled with ephemera most people might call junk (if they aren’t “artistes” like us!), pictures of birds and butterflies and old book pages and stuff we all love on this MMJ site!

I used a Manila file folder for the front, spine and back cover, reinforced with cardboard and covered with pretty stuff.

My card for Gracies challenge to use texture paste, I used my homemade paste and sprinkled with distress embossing powder.

The card base I had already made months ago so I used the inks to match.

Jan I couldn’t open your creations and it said pending on them. Aren’t you a fan club member?  We have to change that so you can play in DTGD and other challenges lol.  I’ll check to see whether they are there now. 

Happy weekend everyone

I've framed some, used some on cards, but these are from a project pack from Zentangle.com and I think they'd work best in a book of some sort. I really don't want to permanently attach them so I was thinking about pockets. I'm tempted to buy a Dylusians and Dina Wakely journal and add some mixed media backgrounds. Or would you make something from scratch with papers etc. you already have? I'll try to post thumbnails of a couple of tiles so you can see what I have. Thanks.
These are so pretty, Jean: Interesting zentangle with color. Most I have seen are black and white. I think they would be better showcased in neutral pages to show off the art work but that is my taste.  Vellum pockets are are great solutions to show off the patterns.

Kandie Your Journal is so feminine soft and romantic.  Your DD is going to treasure this.
So beautifully made.  I love all the pretty roses and images throughout. What a wonderful keepsake.

 It’s lovely Jan: I didn’t know you can make your own texture paste. Might be a great tip for Thursday tips.
I love the shades of pink and your pretty BG.

Your paper towel card is gorgeous. Like the others I never thought to use Alcohol Inks. Would DOX inks work in place of chalk inks and how did you apply it through the stencil. Was it direct to paper with an ink pad? Love the elongated pearls on the leaf shape and the teal shades are gorgeous.

Jan I love your cards.  I agree with SuZ it would be great if you could give us a tip in how to make homemade paste. Susie (Australia) did put one on how to make some too on a thread some time ago and I will see if I can find it. I’m also interested in how you added your chalk inks. Fabulous cards.

SuZ thanks for hosting a challenge. I’ll add you. 

I got inky today and made a couple of panels. I’m still adding layers lol.  Logged off now as the light isn’t great in my craft room at night even with a lamp.  

Have fun everyone.

Good morning, ladies and happy Saturday.  What’s everyone working on today?  I’m thinking I’ll start my younger DD’s journal at the same time I’m working on mine, because I keep coming across stuff I want to put in hers.  DH kindly took me to Walmart for more file folders and card stock and some Aleene’s gel glue, which I’ve seen on videos but never used.  At least... that’s the plan at the moment.  I’m still sitting on the couch drinking coffee, lol.

I made a card and 2 BG panels and will decide which panel I will use for another card tomorrow. I have to make my WTUI sample too.  Enjoy 

Happy weekend

Hello everyone, thanks for all the suggestions for the art journal I want to make. Still pondering..I do love the vellum idea.

I have a couple of things to post for today's IC, yesterday's F4A and Thursday's WT. I want to get onto the texture paste for Gracie, I have to finish my sample for this coming Monday's TLC and make a card for the one swap I do. Typical day for me. Oh I also want to play with some product combos, like DOx sprays, metallic acrylic paint and Lindy's sprays. Wrinkle free distress backgrounds. If anyone is looking for some mixed media inspiration, I love Joggles blog and store. Good videos, a little on the long side but very informative.

SuZ I used the chalk inks through the stencil, I forgot that the white pattern on the top was distress paint, picket fence, I’m not sure what the inks you mentioned are, mine are the dew drop make, they are quite moist unlike some others I have.

I’ve tried with re inkers too. It’s very thick but I watered it down,too much really but then I used a purple Re inker  When I sprayed it with water the edges went blue! 

It’s easy to make paste, I ran out and can’t get any here.

Default Hello

I got out my (pretty empty) Art Journal.  The first page was a Zentagle page I did on a trip in Thailand in 2014- and was a Zentangle of my hand.  The book has 2 other designs in it.  Kind of fun to have a date on the page : )

Anyway, I worked on the last 2 challenges.  



A card using Gelato's mixed into Embossing paste for this weeks SCS Mix challenge followed:

Fun challenges- fun to get the Gelato's out...have not played with them for ages!

Jean I love Joggles too. Have fun creating.

Awesome journal pages and card Shelly. I must have another play with my gelatos. I used to love them and not sure what I’m doing wrong with them.  I shall have to watch the videos again and have another play.

I found the thread where I had asked about texture paste and it wasn’t Susie who mentioned making my own but another lady. I couldn’t open the video she recommended but did find one at one of the subscriptions I follow, so here it is.

I must admit when I made my paste I didn’t weigh anything, I bought cheap white glue and put some into an empty paste tub, kept adding talc until it was as thick as I wanted, it went a little grey so I added white acrylic paint, it doesn’t matter too much if it’s not completely white if you are putting colour on it when it’s dry.

Good afternoon,ladies.  I’m working on three journals at once!  I get tired of one, I move on to the next, lol.  Here is the front and the inside front and back without any pages yet.

Wow- Kandie- your pages are just Gorgeous!!!  Drool worthy!

I intended to create today, but hubby wanted to go for a long walk around the neighborhood.  When we got back home, my neighbor is out and we were chatting, now DD2 is on the phone. 

Have a great rest of your day!

Beautiful work, Kandie. I have a texture paste background prepared, no idea what I should do next. So that is yet to come.

Hi, everyone.  I’ve been buried in journal and ephemera papers and printouts and cutouts and have not been keeping up on the MMJ posts but I’m caught up now.  

Jan, what are chalk inks and how are they different from other inks?  How are they used?

Jayne, how are you feeling?  I know you had two more specialist visits coming up.  Are you resting in between marathon crafting?  When is your WTUI time up?

Jean, I visited the Joggles site recently and it took all my strength not to immediately place an order for their journal book with removable mixed media pages.  I have too many books lying around now, but none of them have pages that come out.  That particular journal is on my Christmas wish list.

I love that the gelatos, scribble sticks and other types of water-soluble crayons soften and blend with the gel painted over them.  I didn’t know it either before I saw that video.

Great tip on making texture,paste, I filed that away for future use!

Jayne, I have my gelli plate ready and waiting, especially considering I didn’t know to take off the top and bottom acrylic sheets when I first tried it out, lol.  And I wondered why my brayer kept sliding on it!!!  Go ahead and laugh, you ladies who know how to use one, lol. DH sure got a kick out of it!  We have fun telling each other our Duh moments.  . Anyway, now that I’m up to speed, I’m looking forward to your challenge!

And I still have to do the last challenge.  I’m getting behind!

I’m being brave and posting a photo of my mess.  The only thing you don’t see is my bowl of Cheerios sitting on top of a pile.  That’s because it was sitting on top of a stack of paper on the printer, lol.

Kandie that’s a tidy mess. Your room looks great. 

I’m also behind on the challenges and have Gracie’s to do plus some samples for my challenge. Tomorrow’s job.

I’m going good thanks Kandie. I’ve been having fun in my play room. My WTUI is ongoing until Sabrina says otherwise. I’m only hosting every third Thursday which is either twice or three times a year so no stress. My challenge is end of this month. I just try to make a sample for each week so I’m doing my bit for the team.

Hope you all get messy today. I intended to but like mice and men, my plans went awry.

Jan, we're all mad here, to varying degrees.

I have to share a story. Sunday morning, I woke from a deep sleep and realized I had no idea what day it was. I've been retired for 3 years, so it isn't unusual to have this happen but it hadn't happened in a while. My solution was to think about what I did the day before and remembered that I had done the inspiration challenge. I now acknowledge that I only know what day it is if I did the challenge the day before.  SCS is now my lifeline. I am struggling a bit with life lately, feeling isolated. I know that mental health issues have been and will be big in the coming months, I'm also wondering if forms of dementia will become more prevalent, especially among older people who have little contact with the outside world anyway. It's a concern of mine, since Alzheimer's is somewhat prevalent on my Mom's side.

Jean, don’t ever feel lonely or isolated. Some of the aloha ladies, including myself zoom or we can even FaceTime. Just check who is in chatting..there’s always someone to chat with. 

We are like you though..we wake up and say what day is it. Today I thought it was the weekend..no idea why. Hugs

Jean I only used to know what the day was as we used to go to watch football on a Sunday, today I thought it was Monday as we’ve just had a long .weekend

I’m so sorry to hear you are struggling and isolated, it’s sad as I think you are not alone, I think you are right, so many people will suffer from not having anyone to talk to, my mums sister had Alzheimer’s, worried my mum so much in case she got it.

I can share my story now.  I’ve been working on these journals, all the papers and tags and ephemera have to be cut out, corners rounded and edges inked.  All edges, to make the papers look old.  I sat for three hours the other day cutting, corner rounding and inking edges.  The next morning I took Dusty out to go, picked her up, looked at her white paws, and immediately thought, Kandie, you’ve forgotten to ink the edges.  Now that’s pretty darn sad.  So Jan, I can truly see the embossing in the tile, lol.

Jean, you’re not alone, dear.  We’re here with you.  I’ve had no contact with anyone outside of a trip or two to Hobby Lobby, and not even there lately.  I just do chores and putter with Crafts.  I think it’s a lonely world for a lot of people right now, with all the uncertainty.  DH tells me I’m becoming a hermit.  ((Hugs)) to you.

Oh yes, and I woke up Sunday and was excited because I thought it was Tuesday and I knew I had an order from amazon coming that day. Bummer to find out it was only Sunday.

Kandie that’s funny looking at Dusty’s paws and being reminded about inking edges, always thinking about crafting.

Our new freezer had ice cube trays, they were round holes! Anyway steve said they wouldn’t be much use so now they are in my craft room to use for mixing paints!
