My journals are amazing, and for good reason.
I make them with love, enthusiasm and attention to detail.
My background as an artist, quilt artist, and having worked in interior design, web design and page layout, helps me enormously.
Colour, pattern, texture, feel — all speak to me loud and clear.
Such fun stuff to enjoy every day!
About Junk Journals
What are they, and what are they used for?
What are junk journals?
Sometimes called trashy junk journals, the pages are made using materials that mostly would not be considered 'good' paper, such as advertising materials (junk mail, flyers, catalogues), vintage stationery, envelopes, greeting cards, and used folders.
Pages can be different sizes, colour, pattern, thickness...
All these elements are assembled into signatures and stitched inside a cover, or added to the pages of an altered vintage book.
How are they used?
You can write in them, paint in them, glue pictures in them, make lists in them. You can use them as guestbooks in your B&B, at a wedding, for a baby shower.
I'm sure you can think of exactly why you need one (or two) junk journals!
