you can win A 7gypsies handmade junk journal
ALong with some creativation 2018 swag!
If you were not able to attend the Creativation Show in Phoenix, Arizona this past January, well, we are bringing the show to you with a chance to win Exclusive Swag, custom designed Vintage Junk Journal from Candy Rosenberg along with the journal she used to create it. You can play in one and create another. How cool would that be? If you are not familiar with Creativations, it is the largest wholesale craft show in the USA. The aisles are lined with a wide range of suppliers who are the creative minds behind the products you love. It is not a show you can buy goods at each booth, it is a show where manufacturers, designers, and companies show off their newest creative items. It is generally held in January every year and it is a great way to kick off the new year.
Are you familiar with the term Junk Journal? Well, a True Junk Journal can be made from just about anything – no rules. This one is made from bits and pieces from the Canvas Corp Brands booth and the creative table that was hosted by the Crew for customers and designers to try out the newest Canvas Corp, Tattered Angels, and 7gypsies products. Junk Journals are so fun to work with just what you have on hand. This blank art journal is ready for you to make your mark on it!
Here is how she created this junk journal with bits of pieces that were “stolen” from the booth at the show. It is hard to list some of the items used because they were exclusive to the show, so this is your chance to not only win this journal but a few of the products that are not available for sale ANYWHERE!
CCB PRODUCTS USED:
Printed Cardboard-Postal | Architextures Findings-Old Paint Brush | Architextures Findings-Vintage Keys Collection | Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam- Organic Garden | Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-Candy Corn | Packaging of various products as backboard pieces
EXCLUSIVE SWAG: 5 x 7 Journal, Architextures Findings-7gypsies Truck (exclusive, not available for sale)
OTHER: Modeling Paste, Ink, Washi Tape, Stencils, Pen Work
Start with cutting the Printed Cardboard to size, one for the front and one for the back. Adhere it to the existing cardstock cover.
Once the printed cardboard adheres, add strips of washi tape across the two pieces to create the binding.
Add strips of long pieces of washi the length of the cardboard to cover the binding pieces and make it more uniform.
Using the leftover packaging that had a board image, I created the background pieces for the front. Stamped and stenciled words and title on vintage book pages. Used the Architextures keys to make it look like it was holding the sign. I adhered the paintbrush to the top and added modeling paste coming off the right to make it look like it was painting across the page.
Once the modeling paste dried, I swiped a bit of Organic Garden Glimmer Glam to give it a paint color.
Finally, the crowning piece. The exclusive swag piece from the Creativation show, the 7gypsies Truck! I love this piece and it really completes the look of the journal!
