Hi everyone! I wanted to share a few photos and a video of a junk journal that I created for myself…which is a rare thing…most of the time I create things for swaps or design team projects.
I used a lot of scraps of cardstock from previous projects, embellishments I had received in swaps and used a few digital images I had found on the internet.
The cover is out of a file folder and there are 12 papers per signature with a total of 5 signatures and in all there are 240 pages front and back in this journal.
I received the butterfly image from Debbie-Anne who has Ephemera’s Vintage Garden on etsy. I love the zipper and dress pins I added to it to give it that quirkiness.
I am submitting this journal for the following challenges:
Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge
Paper Wings Productions Monthly Challenge
Hope you enjoy the video!
