Junk Journal Finished And For Sale

Love every journal I make and this is one is no exception but every time I make a journal I want to keep it.  So I have made the decision that it is time to start selling them starting with this gorgeous make.

There are three signatures in the journal with lots of lace added to the pages and images printed onto fabric.

Some hidden paperclip bookmarks have been added to a few of the pages.  Also in the journal is some stamping onto fabric and a few of the pages have stencilling on them.

If you would like to purchase this album please email: shirley@shirlsartwork.com


Showing Some Stages On My Fabric Journal Cover

Creating things gives me so much pleasure and I hope my videos are inspiring for you and that you get the same happy feeling when watching as I do making.

In this video I am showing some processes of creating a front cover for one of my journals and how to add the front tie.


Second Hidden Paperclip Tutorial

Showing the next stages in making the hidden paperclips.  They are all gorgeous and I am using my punches again.


Hidden Paperclip Tutorial

Andrew has recently taken early retirement and I am loving him being home.  It gives him more time now to help me with my Youtube videos.

This tutorial is the first one I have made in ages plus I have started using my die cuts and punches more, hope you like it.

My poor neglected blog … but no more! I am going to make more time for her starting with showing off some pics of my junk journals.

Alice In Wonderland First Giveaway Journal

My first giveaway on my YouTube channel, if you would like to know how to win this very pretty journal please pop over and see.

The cover is made with Stamperia papers and lots of gesso with paints.


This Journal Was Nearly Two Years In The Making

Today’s journal is one which I started nearly two years ago it was April 2019.  Below is a video I made showing at least 10 journals which I started but haven’t finished.  Guess what this is the year they will be finished and at least one of them will be a giveaway for some lucky person. Which one it will be I am not sure but keep looking as it might even be the Alice in Wonderland journal coming next.

I am so excited to be finishing these journals at last and if anyone is interested I will be selling them here on the blog.

Finished Journal For Christine

This was made with so much love for Christine.
