HOW TO VIDEO – Junk Journal

Junk journals are so much fun to make and to use.
Aristi Moorjackie created this vintage junk journal we’re sharing with you today and here is what she said about her creation:

I created a junk journal using pages from the 12×12 paper pad from 7gypsies Wanderlust, burlap and canvas from a mix & match pad Studio from home basics.  I loved the papers so I wanted to keep the original size and have images complete specially the ballerina and the building so I folded it in have the 12×12 papers and make it look like a file folder.  For the cover I wanted a rustic look so I added canvas and laces with some metal elements.
 I used a card from the pad that said “I wish I’d done everything with you” because it meant something to me and I stamped on fabric the words “love” and “wish”.  I also use a part of a Greek poem from a novelist that talks about love and lost.  So for me this journal is about a loved one that travels and its far away.

Now let’s see her video!!

You can find a wide range of mixed media, craft, home decor, DIY and other exciting projects on our YouTube channels channels –  if you love more videos check out Canvas Corp Brands,  7gypsies and Tattered Angels and BE INSPIRED!!!


I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful pictures to scrap with), 2 boys and 2 girls. My first love is my family, they mean everything to me. My second love is crafting, especially scrapbooking, but I also love DIY, cards, mixed media, and to alter items. I guess if you had to label my style it would be layered, romantic, shabby chic, mixed media, and pop art. I have been called the Queen of Layers!! I love to teach in person and on-line to educate others in my love for this craft.
