Magic in Fall Junk Journal

Hello there. I'm getting in a last autumnal hurrah before I dive headfirst into Christmas crafting! I spent this fall searching out and taking photos of all the beautiful colors changing around me. Fall is my favorite season and this year it was wonderful! I created a journal to hold all my photographic memories using Eileen Hull's Journal Die and a whole bunch of fall themed stamps and other goodies. Let's take a look!

The cover is covered with plaid wool fabric in fall covers. A removable elastic strap helps hold it closed since it is bursting with photos and ephemera!

here is a video flip though:

… and a few still shots of the interior pages!

I used Ranger Distress Collage Medium to glue the fabric to the mat board before I cut out the cover. It was dry enough that it didn't soak through the fabric and adhered it firmly.

Fall always makes me think of pumpkin spice lattes! Yum!

I took photos of our porch Halloween decorations. We grew most of the pumpkins in our garden. =)

There was a farm produce stand down the road from us that had an impressive display of cool pumpkins!

The leaves in our neighborhood were so gorgeous!

I got some fabulous photos of the Boise River. This is one of my favorites!

We had a field trip to the Botanical Gardens and that was lovely. I can't wait to go back in the spring and see all the flowers.
