I received my junk journal from greybird and I absolutely love it!  She really did well stalking me and included lots of subtle references to my different nerdoms. Grin  From the color themes to the junk, she definitely nailed my tastes and preferences.

Thank you so much, greybird.  I really love it!  You have been a great partner, and this has been such a fantastic swap.  Thanks to geekgirl1000100 for hosting and proposing such a fun swap idea!

She drew a lot by hand and created with gel pens. The pages that look like zen doddle are HAND done!
here is a close up of the cover! The heart has chinese writing in it.

I'm  going to put pics in for "jkaywiz" for the Junk Journal I made her! It's not as good as all of you people. It's my first junk journal. So here goes!


I know lots of pics. But wanted to show most things. Hope you like it. There's a few more things in some of the pockets to put in the journal or for another one. Thanks again! Grin

Here's the inside of my fabulous journal!!  (I'm one of those computer morons and was unable to figure collage or a slideshow so forgive the overload of photos!)

Here are some favorites:

So many pockets and envelopes!  Cool images, purple feathers, doilies and skulls!!  More smaller images:

Plus Tarteaucitron sent me this unbelievable extra!  A ribcage pin!  It's so, so cool!  (plus a plastic spider and some extra glitter bats!)

Thank you so much, Tarteaucitron!!!  I love my amazing new journal!!!  And my wonderful pin!!!!  This has been so much fun!!!

I received an absolutely gorgeous journal from Onyxnox this week! It features a little bit of everything from my themes and it is all so well put together and has so many awesome little details. And there are so many pages! And lots of tags, and charms, and lace! I tried to narrow down my favorites, but that's like half the book. So here we go Cheesy

There's this one page that is actually a Basmati rice bag with the snap still intact acting like an envelope!

And there's an awesome quote at the end <3

Lots of the pages have this very dimensional layering and pages sewn together:

And look! Pressed flowers <3 <3 <3

I really love all the different takes everyone took on this swap, and the cool pieces of ephemera I am seeing.  I have a terrible habit, thanks to this forum, of now looking at everything and wanting to hoard it for crafting - from wrappers, to transfers, to junk on the ground.

I received from PerfectlyBohemian last week and have been waiting to get my camera back from a friend... she sent a beautiful journal, chock full of pages, and this is just a sampling of it.  I love that she went with my love of gardening/nature, and there were several Alice in Wonderland pages too - *LOVE*!

The cover.

The inner cover and first page - love the little envelope!

Alice and the forgetful little faun!!!!  Alice!!!

Adorable little forest creatures in pocket and tag form!

Cool painted streaks and a gorgeous bluebird page


A really cool coastal scene

Another cool pocket with vintage photo - love it!

One of several cool layered pages with another vintage photo - flamingos - love all the birds!

Another nature inspired page, with bird stamps.  Love the use of the notecard for journaling space.

Fantastic little ad on this page - love it especially because there used to be a bar DH and I used to go to called the 3 Monkey's.

This angel with the googly eyes made me laugh Smiley

The back cover with a great tag with the swap info - great idea!

The back cover.

Thanks PerfectlyBohemian for a gorgeous journal - this was a fun swap and thanks for being my partner!

Oxy that journal is AMAZING! \O/ And now here's MY lovely art journal! Sarasmile is a closet fantasy artist Wink I just know it! Her book is full of whismy and wonderful mixes of materials. I LOVE it. LOVE!

The Cover: For some reason photobucket didn't want to rotate stuff for me and is being a butthead so you might get a bit of a crick in yer neck looking but at least they're posted!  Cheesy

The first page and strangely, one of my favorties. It's a very pleasing design Cheesy

ADORABLE Hearts! <3

The cutest little birds in the world


A "wood" cut out faeire Wink

Probably my two favorite things on ONE page: Travel and MUSIC!  Grin

Gawd -_- Crappy blurry pic of a lovely silhouette and cut out/silhouette from a book page

Nene Thomas and shiny pretty pastel bubbles! <3

Hee hee, reminds me of my sister and I  Cheesy

Beautiful water color dragonflies. I freaking love watercolor!

And Sara was thoughtful enough to make it as a "binder" set up so I can add pages at my leisure, which I really like. She was silly to worry! We've bonded over the experience and I am VERY glad I can call her friend as well as have some of her artwork for my personal use. It was a LOVELY swap! Although my journal is someone less....artsy :< And I feel bad for that. But the one I sent is sure full of writing space, that's for sure  Roll Eyes

So first, I must apologize to IsikkahJai. I received my journal a while ago but I have just been so crazy busy with work, craft shows and life in general that uploading pics to Craftster was the last thing I wanted to think about.

IsikkahJai made me an AMAZING journal that I just can't stop looking at!! It has so many pages and all of them are so perfect! I asked for a Pagan journal and she did a fantastic job! I only took pics of some of my most favorite pages because there are so many! I love the tiny envelopes, the Harry Potter pages and especially the ASL pages!! I work with people with disabilities and have an obsession with ASL so those pages really touched my heart! Oh, and did I mention that it's tied with the power of 3? I'm not sure that was intentional but I believe it was Smiley Thank you sooooo much!!

I am posting what I sent to DearBluebird -she received last week.

I am a part of Wanderlust - an on-line art class that lasts all year long. This method of re-purposing books was one of the lessons but I had seen tutorials on YouTube with some of the ideas.

This is a cloth hard covered book - I left it white so DearBluebird could paint or collage it herself. It was a Chinese novel and I did add some of the pages inside.

This is my first book made with the Cropadile Big Bite - I love it - easy to use and I love to punch holes in things. But more than that - I love adding grommets. This is much easier than the thing I bought from the hardware store last year.

I used seam binding to tie it - it was a bit bulky so next time I will use hemp or linen thread.

This is the inside - I covered the spine with a piece of muslin (see my post in the Junk Journal-along) and then covered that with fabric.

And for the inside pages I used book text, file folders, maps, Gelli prints, catalogs, vintage magazine pages, calendars, coloring book pages, envelopes and library pockets.

I stuffed it - there were a few tags and library/book borrower cards and other scrapbook-y things for DearBluebird to use.
I hope she enjoys it and gets some use out of it. It's fat but she can always remove pages or a whole signature.

I received the loveliest junk journal today from, lovelymiss!   Cheesy   She really accounted for my tastes in colors and birds and style of journal that I love.  Smiley   It's awesome and I love everything about it!   

First of all is the gorgeous cover featuring what I believe is a Carolina wren, a bird I adore and see frequently in my backyard.   Smiley   The journal is held shut with a lovely long cord with my favorite colors.  The cord comes off completely when I want to open the journal and I just wrap it around and tuck in the ends when I'm ready to shut it.   Smiley   She also sent a very pretty notecard.  Did you make it?   Smiley

Here is a shot of it standing up so you can see the spine, bits and bobs of ribbon and the charm hanging from the spine.  Smiley   The spine has molded raised cords on it.   She has sewn the signatures together too.   Smiley  Did you make the cover or is it upcycled from another book?  It's really lovely!

And now for the inside!   There are so many lovely pages, I can't pick just one favorite.  And pocketses and sewn pages and ribbons and washi and envies and tag inserts.  It's so rich with textures and variety!    Smiley   I see something new everytime I look through it.   Smiley   

On to the photos!  The first is a close up of the charm, and then the rest is approx every couple pages from inside the book. 

And, no, that is not a wand from Ollivander's.  Smiley  Alas!   That is a chop stick so I could hold the pages open flat while I was taking photos.    Cheesy

Thank you SO MUCH, LovelyMiss!!    Kiss    I absolutely adore my journal!!!!!    Cheesy   Cheesy   Cheesy   Cheesy

My turn! My turn!! I received an awesome junk journal from our organizer, geekgirl. I've been having so much fun flipping through all of the unique pages and brainstorming what I'll do with it.

Here's the cover! The binding is so cool and I love all of the cool junk spilling out of it.

I had to feature a picture of my favorite page. GOOGLEY EYES!!!!

Look at the teeny little envelope in the corner of this page. So dang cute.

All of the pages are awesome! There are lots of little envelopes and tuck spots hidden throughout. Here are some more of my favorites...

THANK YOU, geekgirl! I love my journal and appreciate you introducing all of us to the wonderful world of junk Smiley.

I received my delightfully spooky journal from Calixita today and wow she absolutely nailed my tastes. Thankyou so much!

Trying (and failing)to be helpful I made my list of likes super detailed and somehow rather than cursing my name and running away she managed to get a bit of everything in here.

Behold the beautiful (and sturdy) cover:

From the top - Index cards with my initials <3

some close ups because these pages are full of so many clever details

I don't know how you did this C. but i love the swirly, shiny marbled effect

mermaid, mushroom and music oh my!

fold out map and envelope full of goodies

love the composition of this page

the other end of the envelope also had goodies

aaand a collage of many other pages so that i don't overwhelm you with comments on the excellence of every single one

Thankyou again Calixita - i hope your journal arrives soon and that you like it!

I received a wonderfully junky junk journal from rscowtown.

The side of the journal:

The front with all kinds of misc junk:

The back with the Ketchup tab!  The cover is made from a McDonalds bag.

Lot's of cool and interesting painted pages.  Is it gelli prints?  Looks like maybe gelli printing on top of waxed paper and the wax paper was used to cover pages from the 3 little pigs Smiley

Lots of pockets and envelopes and tags!

The first pic on the 2nd row is a pocket made from a gum pack.  Cool idea!

Thanks so much rscowtown!
