Stars In My Eye: Mixed Media Junk Journal
Stars In My Eyes
We are finishing up that last of our renovations in the family room/Craft area this week. My hubby has been doing a amazing job painting, flooring and putting in baseboards. It looks fabulous compared to my furniture painting. Today I spent almost 3 hours painting a couple book cases and a filing cabinet so I could keep with the color scheme. Now that the paint is dry all I can see are the spots that I missed. I am hoping that no one will notice once all the shelves are filled with pretty things but it is obvious that I don’t have the knack when it comes to furniture painting.
The stars come into my eyes when I start dreaming of what my completed craft room will look like when I get all the storage I want. Of course it may not look like my Craft Storage Board on Pinterest but I am hoping to come up with some pretty and creative ways to make it resemble my style.
So,if you have any tips on creative storage or just want to share a pretty picture of your craft area I would LOVE to see it!
Making the Journal Layout
Here is the next layout in my Junk Journal. You can see my previous layout HERE.
As I said in the previous post, this journal was made using a magazine as the base. I painted the pages using Fresco Finish Paints. I used Infusions in the background and embossed in white and yellow.
As you can see, the paper bubbled quite a bit while heating the embossing powder. This is where I learned that I needed to add a paper base over the magazine pages. After adding a bunch of other scraps and a focal image, my layout is complete.
Thanks for Looking and Happy Tea Day. Check out the rest of the T ladies over at Elizabeth‘s.
