Alice in Wonderland Junk Journal

Hi there! What a busy month this has been!!! I'm still in the middle of remodeling my bathroom and having back problems to boot…it bites getting old…which makes it hard to sit, move or do much of anything. 
I do want to share some photos of a junk journal I created along with a short video of the 132 pages that are inside. 
Also I am submitting my journal for Eileen Hull's Art with Heart "Anything Goes" Challenge that is going on this month. I had begun a ATB at the beginning of the month and it just wasn't coming together so I put it aside. I have learned hard lessons from trying to force creativity when it just isn't there and have came away with a ruined project. So maybe later something will click and I'll finish it.


I hope you enjoy the video. I had to learn how to use Adobe Element by myself…lots of trial and error on my part…but I think the video turned out ok considering. :-)


I added two signatures which was 16 papers in one and 17 papers in the other signature which is 132 pages front and back.



The pocket watch is a Tattered Angels chipboard piece that I painted with some Tim Holtz Distressed Crackle Paint, added a Marion Smith bunny image and finished off with lace, buttons, dew drop and flowers.


Pages and pages of fun crafty goodness!

I had received the green tea bag and the tea cup brad in swaps and I was glad I was able to use them on this page. The Mad Hatter image is from a collage sheet I got from Altered Pages.




Supplies Used:
Digital Images: Altered Pages, Dreamz EtCetera, Cemerony
File Folder, Cardstock, notebook paper, scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, baker's twine, ribbon, lace, buttons, dew drops, chipboard pieces, paper flowers 

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!
