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.

‘Floral Elegance’ 8*8 mini album by Tanaya

Good morning everyone,

The last time when I used some of these papers were in ‘I want to travel the world’+’Floral Elegance’ Album by Tanaya and since then I wanted to make the complete album using the ‘Flora Elegance’ by CrafTangles.
This theme suits the best for this love season. The paper has vibrant colors and shabby flowers theme.I loved working with this paper line and would recommend everyone to try them out.

Here is how the front cover of the album looks like-





 The envelope has acetate attached it to keep the photo inserts or the photos.The envelope is of 5.5*6.5 inches where you can keep 6*4 photos.


 The page closure is 4*8 inches and helps to close two flaps of 4 inches each.

‘Tender Feeling’ Mini Album

Hello everyone,

Good morning!! I have used ‘Tender Feeling’ paper pack by CrafTangles for today’s album having ring binding to make it easy to add pages/photos anytime you want.

I used black ribbon as a symbol of remembrance and stencils for the front page.The paper pack is absolutely stunning yet elegant.There are 8 pages in this mini album.It’s little tricky to use a 6*6 paper pack to make a 6*8 album :-p .









Page-1:

A lot of space for keepsake and photos.

Page-2:

There are 3 pages of 6*8 size and 3 pages of 6*6 size.

The 6*6 page opens up and gives a lot of opportunity to stick the photos.






Page 3 :

The flaps have a lot of space for regular size photos.

‘Vintage Maps’ Mini Album

Hey Guys,

Today I have come up with a vintage theme album,the paper line contains all the vintage maps with different color backgrounds.If you have not checked the paper pack,have a look-‘Vintage Maps’ byCraftTangles.

I have used 12*12 paper pack.The front cover needed something vintagey so added this ‘Clock’ cardboard cutout,To give the circle cut I have used a circle cutting dies and my lovely Big shot machine.When you only want one page to open keep the ‘Clock’ to one side and when you want both the pages to be closed keep it in the center.




The album cover measures 8*9 inches and the pages measures 7*8.5 inches.There are 5 pages to the album.

As you can see the beautiful look of the maps,3 pages out 5 have the same swing maps attached to it.If you wish to paste your photos on the maps you can and once the map is swung to one side you can see the actual page.

To get a clear idea check out the Tutorial on youtube-

My first ever DT project..!!

Hi Guys,

I am so excited to finally share this album with you.This is my First ever guest DT project for craftadda.com.If you have not checked this paper line,I highly recommend you do!

Looking at the papers the first thing came to my mind was to keep the front page very simple yet classic as the paper itself has a rich vintage look and I loved how the project has turned out.You can use minimal embellishments yet the project can look elegant.

I have used wooden sticks for the ancient scroll.Mod podge+distress inks+tea water is used to give this look to the paper.One side of the stick is glued down to let the scroll  open firmly.Golden knob and elastic are used for the closure. There are 5 pages with different layouts.

The cover measures-8.5″ * 8.5″ and the pages are 7.5″ * 8″
