Monika here for this month's mini album feature and I thought I would show you how to take a handful of ephemera, scraps of paper, patterned cardstock and less than perfect photos and make them into a fun, interactive documentation of a moment in time.
When making a junk journal like this, as they are often called, I begin by choosing a handful of coordinating patterned papers that share common colors. Next, I choose a variety of patterns that include florals, stripes, bold patterns, subtle patterns that might also include contrasting colors.
Don't let anything go to waste...use your scraps to punch shapes. I just love using journaling cards as pages in my mini albums and almost always use the back sides to journal.
This mini book is full of imperfect photos and on this page, I used my "a good day"stamped sentiment to cover the spot where the lamp light was just a big white blob...now you barely notice it!
I love this page. Love the peekaboo element. Llove the shape of the heart. Love the striped paper and the way the arrow points down to the wood cutouts. Crush!
I hope you are all learning to love mini albums as much as I do as I just adore sharing here with you each month. Now go be crafty!
