I started a Junk Journal-along earlier this year after a junk journal swap.


Stop by and take a peek, post some pics if you have projects to share. I will continue it in 2017.

I swear I could fill 2 boxes with just what is on my work desk and my desk at home!

So happy you're all ready to destash. Can't wait.

Painted a bunch of paper today with coffee (it was the featured medium in the art room today) - vellum, a map, construction paper, envelopes, file folders and more. I will attempt a coffee-themed book for a friend. I have a stencil (Crafter's Workshop, I think) with cups and mugs so that will feature also in the design.

Will paint some scrapbook paper tonight also - not sure how that will look.

I was thinking to keep the junk journal making going - we could swap our junk for another person's junk. This is a great time of year to toss out stuff - cards and envelopes, calendar pages, unused planner accessories, scrapbooking ephemera and leftovers, swap supplies received but not needed, excess Gelli prints, dollar items that don't thrill you anymore (but it was a dollar so you had to buy it, right?), Instax photos or other scenic shots, postcards, flyers or brochures that you were saving for a special occasion, maps or atlases, and the list goes on and on.

We would swap small, medium or large flat rate boxes - I will have to think of how we can include our international friends.

Sign up the first week of December and send out after the new year when we all go back to work?

So it's easier for me to work in multiples so here is the second (and the 3rd and 4th are still in progress!)

You can see that I used many of the same elements in the books - that's why it's better to make in groups of two or four - when you rip something in half - you can make two pages! Also used calendar pages and
advertisement flyers. I'm wary of decorating too much - I want the receiver to be able to decide if they will write in it, glue or paint the pages.

Now I need to finish the other two!
