This journal is an altered book. I sewed orange bric-a-brac to the edges and added
a few of my original artworks as pages to journal on.
I used all kinds of misc. papers to add
to the restructured books!
I am so excited to let everyone know that I finally got 8 junk journals made for my etsy shop! It only took me forever! I used to make these little books in my old etsy shop as well as sell them at craft shows as the Green Wardrobe. After not making them for so long I decided to dive in and make a few again and I totally forgot how much fun it is to make them. You can get so creative in the process and there are so many techniques! Some books are altered and added to and others are completely restructured.
most of the time they stink and the pages are too brittle!
I love using used, yes I said USED, McDonald's French fry bags for pockets throughout!
I have used pattern paper here and there and either used or new library check out cards in some!
On a couple of the journals I added an accordion file folder for you to collect some paper goodies in while out and about with your junk journal. I've included a few pages in the back or front I have painted on to help get you started for collaging, drawing or writing on!
Travel with this junk journal altered book and have plenty of room to write down your adventures and glue down your pictures!
