My BFF and I made a junk journal!

Yep on Tuesday night my Friend and I created our first Junk Journals. We had a blast Creating and I'm still working on mine and will probably be forever. I'm really enjoying stepping out of my card comfort zone. I will show you only a few pages of this so far and continue to work on it.
 
I made mine from a old hard back book and used Book binding rings to secure my pages.
I used Fabric Adhesive paper from DCWV to Create the cover, added a little lace Ribbon down the front, I used Gelatos in Green to color my letters on the front after applying a coat of Gesso from Grunge chipboard. I couldn't resist the title of my journal lol! It is a progressive journey for me to work on this journey. Just a few pages at a time.
 
 I love going through my stuff and finding things that i'm not sure what i'll do with and just add it to this Journal. So you know that card that you just loved and couldn't part with? Add it to your journal and you can keep it forever.

Fabric Adhesive Paper
Lace Strip
Grunge letters for Sentiment with Gesso and Gelatos applied.

This is a old card front that I had made and loved but couldn't part with.

Scraps of white paper and a tag that I had, it is held on with a metal paperclip.

Scrap pieces of lace and ribbon work great for a project like this. Stickers that you want to use up.

 This is Embossed butterfly rejects that weren't good enough for my project but perfect for here.

Old Square Envelope paper Embellished on the flap and other side with DP.


Die-Cuts that I had won from a challenge a long while back and hadn't used yet, Perfect for this journal.
This Junk Journal is nowhere complete but I hope that it has inspired you to create your own.
