I love making JUNK JOURNALS! If you’re not familiar with this art term, they are handmade books made up of recycled items such as papers from magazines, brochures, patterned paper, music sheets, envelopes, packaging, brown paper bags, maps, greeting cards, post cards, doilies, to name a few. The book covers can be made from cereal boxes, old book covers or any hard card boards, and much much more. I love making them and haven’t made any in a while.
You can definitely make or have a junkyard journal with images, papers, and recycling with no particular theme which I’ve made. But now I’m creating and selling journals with specific themes so my clients who want to buy them have more options depending on their taste. I can create specific themes and personalize them for people. I don’t sell them for too much either.
Here are a few images of junk journals including a few that I just started and am working on. Let me know if you want one or if you you’d like me to make one in a specific theme or a diary with a little bit of everything in them.
