Junk journal

Inkspell junk journal

I picked up the book Inkspell from an op-shop because I liked the hard cover to make a junk journal.

The book had a jacket with coloured pictures so I used some of them to decorate the cover.

When I flicked through the book I discovered it was full of pictures and quotes mostly to do with writing. So I cut them all out and used them to decorate the pages of the junk journal.

I added pockets with Project Life cards to the inside of the covers:

I went for a green theme to go with the cover and a bit of fairytale theme with lots of different pages.

I really love doing themed junk journals and re-purposing books to decorate them.

Vintage junk journals

After a neighbour bought two of my junk journals she said that what she loved most about them was going through them and finding all the pockets, tags, envelopes, fold outs, flaps, cards, and ephemera.

So I decided to revamp three of my vintage junk journals. I decorated the covers, added pockets on the inside of the covers, and included all those fun things my neighbour mentioned throughout the journals.

I used Tim Holtz pocket cards and ephemera as well as Project Life cards. I love those cards and ephemera so much. Will definitely buy more. You can use them to write on or stick a picture to them.

Here’s a look at some of the pages with the added pockets, etc.

All three of these are available for sale. $50 plus postage. Contact me if you’d like to purchase: wordslikesilk@gmail.com.

I’m offering them here first before I go to market. Also, I now have a studio/gallery in the works where people can come and see/buy my creations. So exciting. Will post photos soon.
