My first junk journal for the Design Team of The Graphics Fairy is kind of wild and free-form. The cover is made from plant-dyed paper using purple and yellow onion skins and it closes with a vintage, celluloid button and tea-dyed sari silk.

While there are so many great images available on The Graphics Fairy for free, I really went to town with some of the features on the Premium Membership Site where there are tons of pre-formed pockets, envelopes, cards, and the like. One of my favourite things is the printable washi tape. While you can print it on sticky paper directly, I really love the effect of printing it on tracing paper and using an adhesive to attach it to my pages, as I have done to make a border for the pocket, also made of tracing paper. As it is translucent, you can see some of the detail of the pocket inside made from a Vintage Journaling Card and Pocket. Inside of this is a French Journaling Card.

On another page I have used a “library card” pocket, again on tracing paper. Nearby I have tucked in a tiny accordion book for journaling with covers made from the Steampunk Balloon and Airship collage cards.

The rather mysterious face of the sun is one of many celestial images available and (yet again!) I printed it on tracing paper so that when it was glued over the peacock pattern from the Bird Watcher’s Bliss selection, all of the layers are revealed.
