Junk journal

The first junk journal I’ve bought (from Paper Pixie)

Yay, I’m so excited to have bought my very first junk journal made by someone else.

I’m especially excited about this one because it started my paper bag journal series. It’s inspired me so much and been a big part of my journaling journey.

It’s just stunning with so much ephemera packed into it and so many creative ideas.

Like the page on the left is actually an envelope that opens and the page on the right looks so cool with a napkin stuck to it:

This page has one of the envelopes that inspired the napkin envelopes I made:

Almost ever page is filled with ephemera or has something interesting on it but there’s still lots of writing space.

This is m favourite page in the whole book because of the collaging with that mini paper bag. I love that you can see through it to the mason jar that you can pull out of it. I love the laces and trims and the collage on the bag. And I love the piece of folded paper behind it with extra journaling space:

There is just so much I love about this journal. I love all of the pages but here are some of my other favourites:

This last photo shows a mini journal in that lace pocket. How cool is that!

This is such a special journal for me and I’m so thankful I actually own it. I love Paper Pixie’s work and I have to pinch myself that I have one of her journals.

I look forward to building up my collection of journals from other people since I’ll only buy ones that really mean something to me.

I’m excited to start using this journal, personalising it, and making it my own. I’m not sure how I’m going to do that yet because I don’t usually use journals with so much already in them. But I’ll have fun working that out as I’m a big believer in journals being used and making them your own.

I’m also excited to get crafting away and use this journal as more inspiration in my own journals.

Here’s a flip-through of the amazing journal if you’d like to see this work of art. Forgive my awkwardness, still not used to filming myself and talking on camera.
