Junk Journal Challenge
How I made my Junk Journal
To make the book, I gutted an hardback Tolstoy book then reinforced the spine using cardboard. I then made a guide and used an awl tool to make holes in the spine. I then made 2 journal inserts which I sewn in to the spine as signatures. This is the first time I have done this, so I followed this video by Gayle Agostinelli on You Tube.
I used a variety of different papers and vintage ephemera from scrapbook paper, old books, vintage sheet music, vellum, journal cards and printables. I also used envelopes and paper bags to create pockets and pouches. For the cover, I added some lace and material which I glued on to the book itself. I love the finished look and it is so sturdy.
