"Something Blue".  It is my tattered junk journal made from old book and music pages. The pages were first prepared with a layer of white paper paint.  About 100 pages. Colors are white, tans, brown, a little black and BLUE.  This tattered Junk Journal would make a great wedding book.  But it is a nice Victorian look too.  Filled with lovely punched lace edging, soft flower, ribbon, interesting butterflies, old tiny photos, lace, pockets and tags.  It measures 6" X 9" and it about 2" thick.

This is my mini Junk Journal. It is called "Little Apple Tree". It is about 3" X  4".  It is a single Signature with about 70 pages. One of my favorite so far. Tied with a heart ribbon.

"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.

More pictures for the " VINTAGE  SEWING" book

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.
