"Journal Love" Note to Self Pocket Page Spread | Tiffany JuliaOct 06, 2020
Tiffany here with a pocket page spread in my Note to Self binder.
For this spread I used a mixture of the Gabby, Tori, and Katherine kits to document my art junk journal. I've been struggling this year with doing any sort of art journaling. But last month I had some creative motivation to dig into my journal and play. I wanted to document that moment and those pages in my 2020 scrapbook.
So for this spread, I basically used the backsides of pocket pages I had already filled the fronts of in my binder. I was basically trying to fill in the gaps in my memory keeping, so that left me with one page of eight 2x2 squares on one side and the other page with two 3x4 pockets and four 2x2 squares. Since I had twelve 2x2 pockets to fill in, I decided to alternate between filling them in with 2x2 photos of my journals and various pattern papers, which I cut down into 2x2 squares. I created sort of a patchwork but in the pockets. For the 3x4 pockets, I just used two cards from the Gabby kit.
For the 2x2 pockets that I filled in with pattern paper, I either left them as is or added a few embellishments. The pockets where I used floral patterns I left as is because the patterns were so bold, adding anything else would be too much. But for the simpler patterns I did embellish by either adding a chipboard piece or a chipboard piece layered with a die cut.
For one of the 2x2 pockets in particular, I used the Bailey stamp set to stamp out the "Love this so much" sentiment onto some white cardstock. I then fussy cut it out and added it to the card with a heart die cut piece.
I placed my title on one of the 3x4 cards and used the other card for my journaling. For the title I mixed the Gabby puffy alphas with the ones from Tori to say "art junk journal love." I used a floral die cut along with the journal chipboard piece and heart piece from Gabby to embellish that card. For the other card, I added some grid paper to it to create a place for my journaling.
This spread came out pretty quickly. Definitely check out the process video below to see how it all came together!
