No-Stitch Distressed Mini Journal Using Lindy’s Sprays by Tracy V.

Hi Lindy’s Fans,

One of my absolute favorite things to make are mini-journals – and I adore everything vintage!  Lindy’s Sprays with distressing materials make the perfect background for this folded no-stitch mini. I also loved tinting crackle paste to really grunge-up the cover!

What you will need:

  • Your favorite Lindy’s Sprays, I used Ponderosa Pines Olive and Galactic Teal Starburst Sprays and Sandra Dee Serpa Flat Fabio Spray
  • A 12″ x 12″ piece of craft paper – I used word-printed paper
  • Distress Crayon and Distress Spray
  • Glue Stick or Double-Sided Tape
  • 2 Mini Canvases 3″x 3″ or thick cardboard
  • White and Black Gesso
  • Stencil of choice
  • Crackle Paste
  • Small chipboard pieces and/or other collage materials
  • Lindy’s Embossing Powder, I used Fiddlehead Fern Green

To make:

  • Lightly Gesso (white) your paper.
  • Mark paper with distress crayon and spray with distress spray.
  • Once dry, layer your favorite Lindy’s Sprays, dabbing with a dry towel create a more distressed look.
  • Dry completely, then cut and fold as instructed in video.
  • Glue or tape together un-painted sides of the mini journal.
  • Lightly Gesso (white) two small canvases or cardboard and color lightly with Lindy’s spray.
  • Tint crackle paste with Lindy’s Spray and spread through your favorite stencil.
  • Dry completely and touch-up crackle paste as needed.
  • Gesso (black) your chipboard pieces and emboss with Lindy’s Embossing Powder.
  • Use chipboard and other collage fodder to decorate cover(s), then affix to your journal.

These journals are perfect for mini photos and keepsakes. I hope you enjoy this project!
