I finished the latest junk journal, which I’m called Enchanted Paths (mainly because that’s the title on the title page of the book I gutted for this project.) Its a vintage style with a travel skewed theme. I say skewed because it isn’t quite all travel themed, though it has many elements that are. Others just seemed to fit right, so I included them.
I really wanted to make sure that this book had plenty of space for journaling, so I tried not to get carried away with tucks and pockets and tags. There are lots of tea-dyed papers in here as well because I love the sound it makes. That crinkling sound of old paper when you turn the page, and the way the slightly wrinkled and creased paper feels under your fingertips. There’s just nothing like it.
If you’d like to see the flip through, here’s the video:
The book will be posted on my Etsy page later this evening (when I get home and take photos – I ran out of time last night). I hope you like it!
I’m in the process of creating lots of cards and other things, because I’ve signed up to do a craft show the first weekend in March. It may not be a good idea, but I wanted to give it a shot, since these are not something I’ve seen around my area. If you have any tips for selling journals and cards at a craft show, I’m all ears!
Question of the Day
I’ve got several ideas started for themed junk journals, and my question is whether or not people prefer journals that come with a “story?” Would you rather have a journal that comes with a fictional story about the owner? Or do you just want one with an overall theme, or no theme at all?
