Junk journal

Vintage journal with ephemera

I used a whole bunch of vintage papers I got in happy mail and some of the items I got from my first Etsy haul from A Tattered Dream.

The cover is a collage of papers and journaling cards.

The inside of the front cover has a library card and pocket with a journaling card tucked behind it:

I loved working with these vintage pages. There are book pages, children’s book pages, and newspapers as well as some vintage pages from my own collection.

I interspersed them with coffee-dyed paper yet again. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to white paper.

I included some cute little journaling cards with prompts on them.

This was the first time I used a glassine bag and I love how it looks with a Tim Holtz piece from an ephemera pack on the front, a vintage ephemera piece that can be used as a journaling card in the bag, and some paper to write on tucked behind the bag:

I love having multiple tucks and having that interactive feature in the journals. Makes it so interesting.

Then here I used a glassine envelope for the first time and added a Tim Holtz piece on the front, a journaling card in the envelope, and an ephemera piece that can be used as a journaling card behind it.

And here is the inside of the back cover which I love. I used a large glassine envelope with a large journaling card inside, a tuck spot on the front with a tag, and an ephemera piece behind the envelope.

I’ll have to keep experimenting with these glassine bags and envelopes. I had so much fun using them!
