Junk Journal

 this time I have done something out of my comfort zone. We are all getting those paper bags from the supermarkets, book shops etc. So I grabbed one of the many & opened it up all the way, then folded it up from the bottom & folded that again sideways until it was a lot smaller. I ended up with eight pages so 16 sides to use. I sliced through all the folds to open up each page.

I grabbed a handful of Memory Maze stencils mostly the 4 x 4 ones & stenciled each page with Tim Holtz Distress Oxides in Vintage Photo & Lost Shadow & did layer upon layer to give depth.

 I also used some Seth Apter Ice on a couple of pages ( mainly to cover the brand on the bag)

Then I made all of my Ephemera from my stash, inked all the edges. There are serviettes, tassels, pins, washi tape, eyelets, brads, stamps, altered playing cards, doilies, lace & chipboard used throughout. One page at a time it came together until I finally finished it. I must say I am rather pleased with the way t worked out. Hope you like it & have a go using a shopping bag.

All stencils can be found here:

Old Timers

 Today I have used 3quarter designs 'Dystopian Dahlia' Collection 'Time Frame' page. Then added a docket from my stash along with a page from Vintage letters, Prima Flowers, 3 clock charms. I used E6000 glue for the heavier items. Then actually opened & used some Tim Holtz Photobooth faces under the Memory Maze Frame. All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Happiness is the Beach

 For this layout I used Happiness is the Beach chipboard sheet. I kept all the pieces in the frame until I painted them (much easier to handle) I tore a sheet of patterned paper, inked the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink & taped it onto a piece of heavy white cardstock which I also inked the edges but with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used a mixture of Life of Colour Water Colours & pens to paint all the bits. Then all the edges that were torn of I inked & mounted the photo onto to give a bit more depth. You can find these items here:

Horsey Cards


Here I have made 4 cards out of one sheet of cut aparts for your favorite horsey person.

I used my gelli plate to make some backgrounds & I also used my stamps pads smooshed onto my mat & added some water to tone them down. All the titles are from Memory Maze chipboard, flowers are from my stash of bits & pieces left over from other projects.

Journal page

Hi, I’m Jason. I have been crafting for over 15 years, and I love the texture and mixed medium design type. but not limited to only mixed media.

Today I be sharing a journal page with you with an amazing chipboard and stencil from Memory Maze Laser Cut. 

With the amazing stencil, I used textured paste through the stencil and when this dried, I went over it with Finnabair waxes.

This chipboard is versatile and stands up well to mixed media techniques.  Initially, I painted them with white paint, and when dried I used a selection of Finnabair to show another finish on the page.  I used Helmers glue to glue the chipboard down.

                                          I used the flowering products 

                                                                    Every adventure 


                    Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog post for Memory Maze.

Stash Busting Cards

 I had some great images left from Studio 73, so I made a few cards. The background was done with stencils K0016 & a heart stencil.
