Junk Journal

For the challenge at Southern Girls I am putting up my first junk journal which I made for a swap.  The cover is made out of a recycled cereal box and covered with old book pages and tissue from an old sewing pattern, then inked and collaged.  The papers inside were all coffee stained and I used lots of old book pages for tags and embellishments. I also used lined paper from exercise books, tracing paper and pages from an adult colouring book that I picked up at a $2 shop.  I used images that I had in my stash and other bits and pieces I had lying around.  

I sewed the signatures into the cover and added beads to the spine.

The closure was made from a piece of trim and a binder ring.

Here are some of the inside pages.

I look forward to seeing your projects so please pop over to Southern Girls and use the link to add your project.
