Junk Journals

These journals are called “junk” journals because they contain a variety of different types of papers, such as book pages, graph paper, lined paper, etc.  They are often filled with ephemera and many of the pages are embellished with fabric, tassels, charms and tabs.

All of my journals are created in a pet friendly, smoke free environment.  These journals are lovingly made by hand, not by machine and this means they may not be “perfect”.  Their slight imperfections only lend to their charm and uniqueness.

Every effort is made to represent the colors as accurately as possible, but please note that colors can vary by the type of device and display they are viewed on.
