Scrapbook Layouts with a Pastoral Narrative
Chronicle family stories against the backdrop of barnwood prints and fields of grain.
These pages can frame photos, hold ticket stubs from the county fair, or border handwritten memories of days spent in the sunshine.

The nostalgia factor will appeal to customers looking for a touch of country in their everyday lives.

They’re perfect for writing, sketching, or as unique logbooks for gardeners and nature lovers.

Frame these prints as they are, or customize them with personal touches like family names, significant dates, or favorite quotes.
They can become part of a gallery wall or stand alone as a focal point in a room that needs a touch of warmth.

Tips From Me To You: Crafting with ‘On the Farm’ Junk Journal Pages
Creating with our ‘On the Farm’ junk journal pages is like opening a gate to the countryside and letting your creativity roam free.
Here are some tips to help you harness the full potential of these charming printables:
Printing Perfection: For vivid colors and sharp details, print your pages using a high-quality inkjet printer. If you’re aiming for an antique look, you could choose a lower grade print setting for a more faded and less saturated print.
Paper Choices: The soul of a junk journal lies in the paper. Opt for thicker paper like cardstock for covers and dividers, and vary the texture with linen or cotton paper for interior pages to add a tactile experience to your journal.
Aging Techniques: If you’re going for an authentic aged feel, try tea or coffee staining your printed pages. Brew a pot, let it cool, then either dip your paper or brush the liquid over it. Let it dry completely for that time-worn appearance.
Cutting and Tearing: Sometimes, a clean cut is perfect, but for a junk journal, rough torn edges can add character. Use a ruler and a craft knife for precision or tear by hand to get that rustic edge. Remember, imperfections are part of the charm!
JPEG Joys: Working with JPEGs is straightforward. They’re universally compatible with most software, and you can easily resize them to fit your project. Just be careful not to over-enlarge, as this can lead to pixelation.
Layering Love: Layer different elements from your journal pages. Combine text with images, overlap colors, and play with transparencies. This will add depth and interest to your pages.
Sealing Secrets: If you’re using these pages for decoupage or as cover art, seal them with a clear acrylic spray or a decoupage medium to protect against wear and tear.
Printing on the Go: If you don’t have a printer at home, don’t worry. Save your files on a USB drive and head to your local print shop. They can print on a variety of paper types and sizes for you.
There’s also a number of companies online that will print your images and send them to you – be sure to do some test runs before printing a large quantity.
Ink Savvy: To save on ink, consider printing in ‘draft’ mode for less ink-saturated pages. This can also contribute to the vintage look if that’s what you’re aiming for.
Creative Combinations: Don’t be afraid to mix and match your digital pages with physical elements. Glue in fabric scraps, pressed flowers, or anything else that fits the ‘on the farm’ theme to make your pages pop.
Community Crafting: Join us in our Facebook Group. Share your projects, get inspired by others, ask questions, and find a supportive community of fellow crafters.
Remember, there’s no ‘wrong’ way to use these pages. They’re a starting point for your imagination.
Whether you’re crafting for pleasure or profit, let these tips guide you to creating something truly special that resonates with the heartwarming essence of farm life. Happy crafting!
