I I’m having a blast making junk journals using the new hotel keys set— making the journals and components has proven more fun than creating the keys themselves ;)
This journal is inspired by Jaws and is decorated with elements that will be familiar to anyone who loves the movie: note: We are Amazon Affiliates and may receive a small commission at no cost to you if you make a purchase. I only share items I own, like and use :)
Reader’s Junk Journal
Here’s a closer look at the components:
The keys are from the gothic and horror key fobs, found here. I printed them out and then laminated them for use in this project.
For the book, I tore up pieces of pastel paper I somehow acquired, then inked the edges. This is the one I used, but any textured paper will work. I needed wide paper, and this is 9x 12”.
I cut 10 sheets down to 6x12, a little smaller than the cover. i tore the edges of each to make a messy, uneven edge, then used a distressEd stamp pad in walnut to age the edges. I used the smaller leftover strips in the mini journal with the atlas cover, shown stacked on the main piece. I used the same technique for the shining journal, shown here.
The beach closed photo is from unsplash, I wrote on it then laminated it. They’re-elect Mayor Vaughn is a photo from the Jaws ride at Universal Studios, trimmed and laminated. The little raft photos are product photos, vintage and Creative Commons licensed, they seemed to go well.
Here are a few of the components used inside:
The pieces together:
the water safety book is made to look vintage, and holds a mini journal and some shark plastic canvas pieces I found st the thrift shop. There are a few shark photo etc inside that are not showing, I’ll add a photo with them, and they are included in the free download.
I hope you like it, I had fun revisiting one of my favorite movies! I’m sharing the files for this in the next newsletter, the keys are linked below.
