What is a Junk Journal?

Junk Journal is a hand crafted book/album made up of recycled items such as patterned papers, envelopes, paper bags, cards and post cards etc. The cover of this junk journal can be made from old book covers or card boards or cereal boxes etc. It is a diary with different graphic images,memorabilia and keepsake items which records and documents the memories and thoughts, occasions or events which are closer to your heart.
Today’s project is completely different than lots of my previous posts.The paper pack I have used for this project is Autumn Harvest by CrafTangles. This paper line inspired me to make this junk journal.
For people who have heard junk journal for the first time, It is basically a handbook made up of recycled items such as papers from magazines, patterned papers, packaging paper, paper bags, maps or even old book covers etc. Junk Journals are super fun to make as you can make them out of almost anything.😊
I have used brustro bleedproof marker papers & pattern papers for this project.You can also use normal A4 size printing papers for tea dyed effect. The tea dyed papers gets heavy/bulkier after drying. As you can see, my journal quickly became so fat.I love the look and feel of every page, but here are a few of my favorites from this journal.

 Some random pages from the journal.
