What's a Junk Journal??! It's a handmade book filled with pages made from gorgeous 'found' papers like handmade tea stained paper, old sheet music, vintage book pages, envelopes, packaging, brown paper bags, maps, greeting cards, ledger paper, post cards, etc...all kinds of treasures! In this introductory workshop, you'll make a junk journal cover from a vintage hard-back book, complete with inside lining and pockets. Then you'll create 3 'signatures' for your book by choosing from my own personal collection of found and scavenged papers, many that I've already tea stained for you. I'll show you how to bind the pages into your book and give you a bunch of fun ideas for adding envelopes, pockets, flaps, tuck-spots, journaling cards, and tabs to your junk journal. Then we'll talk about ideas for using it! Graduates of this workshop are eligible to join our monthly Junk Journaling Club where you'll learn a new technique and then have free time in our studio to junk journal side-by-side with others.
