Junk Journaling

I am around fabric all day every day and love every minute of it.  But sometimes as you may know I need to revert back to my original love - paper.  Art journaling is a therapeutic joy.   Book binding is a fascinating art.   Junk journaling throws it all together in a fun way!

I baked some brownies for my son one evening a couple of weeks ago (Betty Crocker, as I am no scratch baker!)  The empty box in my hand felt like a perfect size for a journal (am I sick or what?!)  I  decided to make it a true junk journal - only using leftover supplies - so I covered in with some old book pages and used bits and scraps that came from others in swaps or were left over from other projects.

Extra bits and pieces of Gelli plate printed papers and washi tape added some color here and there.
Five signatures were bound in with waxed linen.  All I have to do is add something to dangle.
Have to admit that I really love how it turned out!  The brownies were sweet and so is my journal!
