A Taste Of Portugal – Junk Journal

A Taste Of Portugal - Junk Journal

Hi there!

This is my first, literally, junk journal. It was made with supermarket publicity and another publicity booklet that I used as the surface… I had to remove the staples and sewed the pages  Can you tell that I am desperate?!

Well, let me tell you something, in the end, it turned out much better than any expectation I could possibly have. That is because I had none.  When you have nothing to lose you can do anything. That took away any fears of things going wrong and waste materials because all was just a bunch of rubbish!

And because Portugal for tourists is all about good weather, food, and drink… It turned out even better!

I hesitated between taking a bunch of pictures or making a flip-through video… But in the end, I felt lazy and went for the video. Leave a comment and tell me what is your preference. Do you prefer a bunch of pictures or a video?

Thank you for watching, liking, commenting and subscribing.

In Love & Gratitude,



Junk Journal Hunters Club February’s Challenge


I was invited to take part in the Facebook JJHC February’s Challenge. You can join the group here.

So, the challenge for me is actually huge because I have very little to use and it gets really tricky!

Once again, I had the mini digital kit provided by Penny, some book pages, cardstock and paper that I’ve dyed with… juiced grass diluted with water!

For this journal I used one of the papers cut in half to put in the front and back cover, used one of the circles from the embellishments page with 2 pieces of cardboard on the back to make height and use it as a button for the closure with a piece of golden thin ribbon and 3 signatures.

Winter Bag Handmade Journal


Hi, here I am again!

Today I am sharing a handmade journal that I’ve made using the ‘Vintage Winter Journal Set‘ from The Art & Craft Therapy Room. This kit is now on sale!

And again, for this journal I have used only the digital kit, book pages, lined and computer paper dyed with food coloring. And yes, for the cover I’ve used the top part of a cat litter bag painted with shoe polish.


Dying the paper with the food coloring and the paper dried in the electric heating! Shhhh this thing stains.



Using empty tea bags for mini envelopes. Silly me didn’t take a picture of the decorated one because it’s in the flip through video and after recording that one I packed the journal to mail it…


Getting the signatures ready.



Covers drying.

Hey guys,

It’s been a while but here I am to share with you the latest news.

My life had a huge turn, my craft room is close for now. All my materials are packed and in a storage facility while I am travelling around Europe.

That doesn’t mean that I am not working with art because I am. I am the founder or The Art & Craft Therapy Room.

At the Art & Craft Therapy Room we have a blog, and if you would like to contribute please click here.

We also have a store that sells art materials. Yes, it has lots of room for improvement and we are working really hard on it. I am also working on two more projects alongside The Art & Craft Room so bear with me… We are also working on a way to create a charity to help people heal with art with part of the profits, but more on that project later on.

So, if you want to subscribe to our work, please click here. Oh! And don’t forget to like our Facebook page and share the love.

Thank you for your support.

Secret Pieces ~ Handmade Journal

Hi everyone,

This was a journal that I’ve made for a swap.

I’ve made a video… Please be kind… The quality of the video doesn’t seem much better than the pictures… That’s the best I can do with the current conditions.

My pronunciation needs a big deal of improvement and I had to stop watching the thing so I could stop slapping myself in words such as ‘difference’ and ‘hugs’… Oh well, I could not record the all thing again to correct myself. Hopefully next time I’ll do better.
