Frilly and Funkie Put On Your Inking Cap Challenge: Choose Joy HeARTfelt Journal Video
Hello, Friends! I’m happy to be hosting the latest challenge over at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Our theme this go round is “Put on Your Inking Cap”. I’ve created a really fun Choose Joy HeARTfelt Journal to inspire you today, but before we get started, here are the guidelines for the challenge:
Challenge Theme: Put on your Inking Cap
Create a vintage or shabby chic mixed media project without using patterned paper of any kind. You may use Distress Inks, Sprays, Paints, Stencils, Stamps, Embossing powders or any medium you choose but NO patterned paper allowed!
Choose Joy HeARTfelt Journal with Eileen Hull and Tammy Tutterow
Eileen Hull generously donated two sets of the die cut journal components to each member of the Frilly and Funkie team. The pieces are cut from smooth mat board and are a dream to work with! If you are familiar with traditional Midori style travel journals, then you know the covers measure 8.75″ x 4.5″. Haven’t heard about Midori style journals? Then you are in for a treat! Search Midori style journals on Pinterest or Google. But prepare a snack and a beverage, as you will be engaged for a good long time!
My Choose Joy HeARTfelt journal is done in a Junk Journal style. I’ve mixed and matched all kinds of wonderful products in the three sections. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’ve prepared a YouTube video tour that will do all the talking for me. I hope you enjoy!

Wow!! This is amazing, Kath. All the details and work you put into this gorgeous journal is awesome. You are so talented!!
Absolutely LOVING this journal Kathy! The altered cover is a triumph with it’s layers of media and brickwork on the front and the embossing on the reverse. And that is one clever idea for using loose sheets of different types to record your positive thoughts and ideas. Really enjoyed the flip through video too xx
Gorgeous inside and out! Love the cover with so many shabby elements. Great use of the Tammy Tutterow stamps on the inside. And a video too – always a pleasure to visit your blog and view the videos! Thanks so much for this lovely project for Frilly and Funkie!

You did a fantastic job of creating a bright and happy journal. I love the details on the cover and all the fantastic texture. The quotes on the inside are so much fun to read and you have added so many little tuck spots where you can add more.
