A couple on months ago I was inspired to explore junk journaling and the perfect opportunity arose – to make one for a dear friend’s special birthday!
Below are a few of the pages from the journal. The front cover was created with textured material and die cuts which were then painted with gesso prior to painting. And charms were added to the spine – a dreamcatcher charm from Majorca and a dancing diva charm from Altrincham market – which was a originally a key ring made from a dessert spoon!
Many of the pages were painted and stencilled before adding photographs and embellishments.
A thoroughly enjoyable exercise which I would definitely recommend and I am already considering the topic for my next journal!
