Is it any wonder with a blog named ScrappyHorses I would enjoy making a Vintage CowGirl Junk Journal? I really loved creating this project I have made for my friend who is (and always has been) a cowgirl! I started in Pinterest saving old pictures of famous women of the west! I've become enamored with Prairie Rose, Mable Strickland, and several others! It was so fun reading about them and others who settled the West!
I was very excited to find a Lapbook Style Tutorial from Mike Deakin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPNI3oe8zoU&t=381s The minute I watched this video, I knew this was the overall style I wanted for this journal.
Lots of tearing, sewing, and gluing of odds and ends! The book base is made of cereal boxes and kraft paper. Papers and embellishments are many and most are probably no longer available as they've been in my stash awaiting just the right project! I know these are represented: Prima, Bo Bunny, FabScraps, Tim Holtz, CTMH, and Kaiser Crafts. I also incorporated some old jewelry, burlap, twine, buttons, inks, stamps, cheese cloth, paint, Cricut cuts, lace, copied photos from Pinterest, embossing folders, washi tapes, etc.
Please see the video below to view the inside pages of this journal.
There are several, so I thought it would be easier to make a video than to post them all!
