Throwback Thursday! Finding Atlantis Passport Journal

Welcome to a Throwback Thursday project! Today for Eileen Hull's Facebook Live show she shared how to create a Junk Journal using the Passport Book Die. Some of us on the Inspiration Team thought it would be fun to share some of our past projects using the die. This is a project I made last spring and one of my all time favorites. =) It's a long post so I cut out the tutorial. (See here for the original post.)

Also, we've started an Eileen Hull Fan Club Facebook Group! If you'd like to be inspired, share tips and tricks and your projects then it's the place for you! Just request to join and someone will add you right away. Everyone is welcome.

The cover is made from embossed brown Paper Leather (two layers glued together) with black Inksheet details (Instructions following. The spine is also Paper Leather covered with copper foil.

The inner pages are all cut from white Paper Leather, colored with Tea Dye Distress Ink using the Wrinkle Free Distress technique, and then stamped using various brown and black Ranger Archival Inks. I thought about taking a photo of the enormous pile of stamps I had out for all these inner pages but figured this post was long enough already lol.

The octopus image is made using a die and white Inksheet! The Inksheets act like a resist on your substrate and allow you to use thin dies like stamps! Instructions following…

I also discovered you can use stencils with the Inksheets. On these pages I used the Bare Branches stencil and a gold Inksheet to impress the branches onto the page (plus it acts as a resist!)

I've added bits of "ephemera" into the journal, like the author clipped in letters, sketches, maps and specimens.

Almost done!

The supplies I used for this project can be found at Sizzix or Simon Says Stamp. Follow the links below and a shopping you may go. ;-) Some links are affiliate links and there will be no additional cost to you but they help support my art endeavor. Thanks!


  1. I love this more than ever Lisa. You were Junk Journaling before they even called it that :-) Love all the cool touches, especially the metallics!

  2. What a great journal! I love the front with the texture and colors. The pages is absolutely fantastic :)
