Autumn Enchantment - Junk Journal

Hello Friends!

I'd like to share another junk journal with you today using
Shimmerz Paints to enhance some embellishments.
Below is a round metal rim office tag and Shimmerz Candlelight Paint was used to make the little leaf die-cut look like a metal or resin like piece.
I purchased the round metal rim office tags from
A Tattered Dream on Etsy.
I love how metal rim office tage turned out and will be using Shimmerz Candlelight more often.

I am enjoying making these junk journals.
They're perfect for preserving memories by journaling, adding photos, vintage doily's and laces, and ephemera. 
In this journal, I've incorporated some photos, and an ticket to a play I saw many, many years ago. These tickets make great little collages too. 

You can find a short slideshow of the entire journal on my newly created YouTube Channel.

And, you can visit Shimmerz Paints Blog to get all the product details too. 
I hope the junk journal inspires you to create one also.
Use your scrapbook tools, mixed media skills, add in some sewing, and you can have one too.
Thanks for looking.

    Happy Sunday!

    1. Left message on your blog. I assemble, embellish, and then i bind it all...this way i can make changes if i need, plus it's easier to photograph. Thank you for the question.
