Make a Junk Journal

Here’s a peek into my process of how to make a junk journal, specifically for #junkjournaljanuary this time around. It’s super easy to do!

This year, I decided to join in with the Instagram challenge #junkjournaljanuary and made this quick journal for this particular challenge. I’ve used a mix of papers from my stash, magazine pages from Flow Magazine and the cover is an old handmade pocket journal from the past.  Check out my process and thoughts in the video below.

If you don’t already know about junk journals, I highly suggest you try it out! It’s an easy and fun way to get creative, but without all the pressure of art journaling that often has drawing or painting associated with it. Technically, you can do anything in your junk journal, but at it’s simplest, you can just collage and mix and match papers and vintage items for a very cool look.

I’m just getting into junk journals lately because I’m short on time and find it super easy and satisfying to create in a junk journal. I’m excited to perhaps create more printables around this style… and if you are looking for the vintage style, check out my free vintage paper printable here and these vintage journaling cards here. They can help to give you a head start in your junk journal creations.

End of 2018 // Art Journalling Review

Art Journalling has been a blessing in disguise this past year. A place to express myself with marks, colors, images and journaling! I decided to take a look back on the many journals I have created. It’s a way to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome 2019 with open arms.

Do you like to art journal? How often do you actually look back at your old journals and flip through? It can be very satisfying to see what you have created, but also helps you to see your growth, your change, over time. I hope you enjoy and thank you for watching!
