Vintage-Inspired Journal Tutorial
The kids and I have been busying ourselves with a few summer crafts. I’m determined to encourage their creativity over the summer. We’ve been drawing, painting, creating little origami animals, and making journals to record our fun summer adventures in.
The girls decorated their journals using the supplies we’d gathered – markers, colorful paper, glittery stickers, and glitter glue. So much fun! Art supplies in hand, the girls bent over their craft projects, pouring all the love, glitter, and personal flair they could muster into transforming their boring composition books into fun, personal journals.
I had some fun of my own by creating a little journal for myself. I want to join the girls in recording our summer adventures.
DIY Vintage-Inspired Journal
Creating your own vintage-inspired journal is super easy and fun. You’ll need a few scraps of fabric, magazine clippings, and textured paper.
Bind textured sheets of paper to create pages for your journal, or make your own tea stained paper with the help of my easy-to-follow tutorial. Use scraps of fabric or magazine clippings to create a fun collage cover. Make the journal your own – choose textures and patterns that reflect your personal style.
I’ll be recording our summer adventures along with my girls in my new vintage-inspired summer journal. Between family outings, personal craft projects, and the Nurture Photography Challenge, we’ll have lots to fill our pages with this summer.
