Today I'm using the awesome Wrap Journal die to create a Halloween Junk Journal, and I'm loving how this turned out!! I've included lots of photos so you can see all the details, but be sure to scroll down to see the video link where you can get a complete walk through and the blog hop line up below! I've also included a list of the supplies below as well.
I had a lot of fun layering paints, stencils, powders and stamps to create a spooky background. The Seth Apter paints were wonderful to work with and mixed beautifully to create even more colours than the four I worked with in the Autumn Set.
The Hammered Metal embossing powder created such a cool effect inside the EC skull stamp!
I added lots of fun elements along the spine of the journal.
Here's a look at the book opened up. I plan to fill this junk journal with lots of spooky Halloween ephemera!
I created a little tag pocket on the left and decided to tuck the right flap under the cover, but you can also choose to layer it over the top. The Magical Mysteries Dragon's Egg powder added a beautiful purple - complimenting Seth Apter's paints!
I created four 'signatures' which are the little booklets that fit into the Wrap Journal. I cut a cover from Tim Holtz cardstock and then three more pieces of paper from a 7gypsies Halloween collection sized at 6 1/2 x 5", which I folded in the center.
The Canvas Corp Halloween Tags on Kraft cut apart sheet was perfect to cut elements from to add to the notebooks and inside the journal.
I punched small holes with my Crop-o-dile to match up with the diecut holes in the journal and threaded a piece of hemp twine through the center of each signature and then the journal spine.
Some Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink added a shadow around the edges of my pages and I rounded the corners with the We R Memory Keepers corner punch at 1/2".
I used some more Tim Holtz cardstock to cover the inside base of the Wrap Journal, tearing a bit off the edges and adding more of Seth Apter's paint.
A few Tim Holtz' paper dolls and chit chat stickers are tucked in various places throughout the journal.
The spooky little outhouse was fun to add to the back of the journal along with a sticker from my Halloween stash.
To close the Wrap Journal I glued on two metal embellishments and added some ribbon coloured with Seth's paints. I really love the Autumn colours in this set!
I hope you enjoyed having a look at this journal - I really loved creating it!
Be sure to check out the process video where I show you how I create the cover of this journal and then do a walk through of all the fun elements I included!
