I’m kind of obsessed with junk journals lately, even though I do not make them myself (I’m not really a paper crafting girl and I don’t have the time to make junk journals). But I’ve been inspired by many artists who make incredibly beautiful junk journals, that I see in the galleries on Facebook and on Youtube. I also often design items for junk journals when I work on my weekly assignment for The Graphics Fairy. As you may know, I am one of the designers of the amazing Membership site team and each week I get to work with the wonderful vintage images that Karen and Emily select and offer to their subscribers.
If you want to know more about junk journals then The Graphics Fairy is a good place to start. Not only does The Graphics Fairy offer thousands of gorgeous vintage images for free, you can also follow along with Rebecca Parsons series ‘Make Your Own Junk Journal‘ – a series of 8 blog posts that will show you from start to finish how to Make a Junk Journal!
‘Merry And Bright’ is my very first ‘real’ junk journal kit and I had so much fun making it. Let me show you the result!
Creative team member Sheila made a journal with this kit – watch the Youtube video below.
Here are some pictures!
Have a great day,
