Junk Journal ......

Hi Girls...

Well, I've tried something new once again.  This time, I've made my very first Junk Journal.

So far, I've gotten just the basics put together and I will eventually add more "Junk" to it to bulk it up and make it look even better and I'll finish decorating the cover when it's completed.  I used two pieces of chipboard for the front and back covers, which I covered in scrapbook paper also. The Journal measures 6 x 9 which is a perfect size and allows me to make two pages from a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper.

I stuck with my usual theme of using papers that have sort of a vintage look to them and I used distress ink on all the edges to make them look a bit older than they really are.

So here's what I have so far...

I know that's a lot of pictures, but I hope you enjoyed seeing the bones of my Junk Journal and that maybe I've even given you an idea or two to create something similar.

Back to the craft room I go.  See you again soon!!

Hi Kim!
Very cool junk journal! The sweet blocks that you gave me on sitting on my craft table along with the tag! I haven't used any of the lace, yet! It looks cute on the tags that you made!
Wasn't this a great weekend! I'll take days like this until Dec 21st! Enjoy your day and keep creating!
