"THE SEA" is a simpler junk journal that could be a travel journal  than Sea Magic which I posted below this one but maybe some prefer that. It measures 5 1/2" X  * 1/2" X 1".  It has about 100 pages and mostly blues, some greens and sandy colors. Less pockets and tags but a few.  It has a gold sailing ship on the front with gold metal letter that spell "The Sea". It has some nice images with plenty of writing space and places for Photos and other things.

"SEA MAGIC". That was the book I used to rebind my Ocean Junk Journal. This was really fun to make because I had some really pretty images to use as pages. It measures 5 1/2" X 8" X  1" with about 100 pages.  Interesting pockets and tags. This would be a great travel journal for someone who is going to the ocean. Mostly blues, light greens, and Sandy colors.

SEWING" book

This hand made junk journal was SOOO much work and it took many hours to complete.  I searched hard for the beautiful images and pockets and tags and other goodies in this sewing book.  THIS IS PACKED with good stuff.  It measures 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" X 2" with maybe about 200 pages. Yummy yummy SEWING book! It was hand bound and the cover is my original. The side is tied with lovely pink vintage buttons and a little pair of scissors. Red cover with grey high lights. An old garter for the clasp. This is one of my very favorite Junk Journals. Love it and Loved making it. Every page is filled with wonderful sewing vintage sewing things.

If you love flowers, you will love this book. It is so bright and pretty and all 24 pages have a beautiful, hand painted large tag and flower tab. This is one happy book!  I call it the "PURPLE FLOWER" book.  Hand made cover, a few designer pages and lots and lots of pockets and lovely tags on each side of the larger pocket pages. It is so pretty to set on your shelf when you are not writing in it or adding photos. It is so pretty just as it is but I would definitely add journaling. It measures 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" X 2". I used an old garter strap for the clasp. The cover is hand painted with gold and covered with a nice Gel Medium.

The old school book covers are my most favorite to rebind. This is from the 1950s I believe. I will name it what it says on the title ..... "WHEELS AND WINGS". The images in this book are wonderful and I tried to use as many as possible.  It measures 5" X & 1/2" X 1 1/2"  I have absolutely loaded this great book with MANY wonderful pockets, tags and neat tabs that all match.  It is a really fun fun book. It would make a wonderful journal to record childhood memories and old photos for yourself or one of your children. It could be used for a girl or a boy.  I really like this one.

This Junk Journal is call "MAGIC FLUTE". I used an old children's book from the 1930s. There were only a few but very lovely images so I utilized them all and a few other elements from the original book. Hand rebound. Almost every page is a pocket with tags and tabs. I really love the colors of this old book and I stayed in keeping with the beautiful muted colors on the cover.  This is a really sweet rebound book. I almost wanted to keep this one for myself. It would make a great book to put memories and photos from your childhood.  It measures 4 1/2" X 7" X 1"
