Post your images here!  Please try to post a picture of the cover and at least 5 pictures of different pages.  IF you can do a collage(s) that would be great.

I have received from LimeRiot and it's awesome!  I love it.  It's full of cool "junk". LimeRiot thought maybe I could use the journal for my ATCs and that's a great idea. 

First the cover is made of brown paper bag (I think). And has an elastic band to hold stuff.  Like this bingo card that can be used for a bookmark

Look at how stuff it is!

I made collages of my pages.  The collage utility (from google) did not keep the pics in the right order but I suppose it doesn't really matter.  Hopefully you can see all the details.  If there is a pic you want to see more clearly, let me know and I will post it.

The first image on the middle row actually shows the inside cover.

This collage shows some little tags and a brown bag. I really like the painted areas.  (I think it's paint.  it's too smooth to be gesso.  Unless it was sanded?)

In this collage, there are several more envelopes and pockets.  I love pockets.  and I really like the use of the doily.

In this next collage, the first pic has a cool burlap pocket. And there are several places I can tuck or attach ATCs.

I got to see geekgirl's journal in person and it is fantastic. LimeRiot did an awesome job!!

An ATC junk journal is a brilliant idea! Mine are just sitting in a plastic baggie  Cheesy I love the neutral tones with pops of red! Very cool.

Glad that it arrived safely and that you like it, geekgirl!! Rather than clean up the mess I made while working on it, I think I'll just wallow in the mess for a while and make another journal Cheesy.

The cover is made from a grocery bag that I soaked, crinkled up, hung to dry and then ironed to flatten a bit. Then I glued it to some light cardboard for sturdiness.

Excited to see this gallery fill up!
