Although I’ve been silent on-line, I’m still journaling daily and adding in visual components too. I’m still trying to figure out what exactly a junk journal is, as there are varying definitions. However, I saw one made out of cereal boxes that looked like fun. I did my own thing out of a cereal box, cardstock and twine. It actually started with an ATC:
Then I gesso-ed and painted the “cardboard” side of a cut cereal box (I used the outside of the cereal box as the inside of the journal and covered it with scrapbook paper but didn’t take a picture), added ribbon, stamping, paint pen embellishment, the ATC and a flower:
I only painted and stamped the backside:
I added a brad and some twine to close it and used coffee-stained cardstock for the inside pages with some random stampings(the pictures of those did not come out well). By the way, I found some great, low-priced stamps @ Scrapbuck.com (I’m not an affiliate).
I’m still in the learning curve of making my own journals. If you are interested in learning more, there are tons of you tube videos & of course, the many talented bloggers out there:)
