Junk Journal

Sharing some of my Junk Journal with you today which Irene and I started whilst facetiming last week.

Stumbled across these Journals whilst mooching on Youtube.  Didn’t follow any particular video – just got some ideas.  So if you want to make your own just type in Junk Journal and have a mooch.  The book so far has three signature sections which were hand sewn into place and I am toying with putting in a fourth.  Just about anything goes with these books

Already there are lots of pages and I want to add more elements so the fastening to shut the book had to be flexible to be able to do this.

Decided on an old necklace clasp which was lurking in the depths of my bit drawers which worked really well.

Close up of the clasp shows how robust it is and also the showing of the inside pages.

Lots more pages to follow showing the vellum, tags, lace, parchment paper,  doilies and loads of other materials used.
