I made a junk journal for Wulf in the Junk Journal Swap.

I was lucky and found the perfect cover in the form of an old teacher instruction booklet from the 1930s.  I tore it in half (!) and extended the spine so that there would be plenty of room for the journal to expand and grow.




I made a couple of embellished paper clips



And an attached bookmark with beads


And to not overload - I made collages of the individual pages.  I mostly kept to a neutral color theme:










And a few close ups:

The moment you tore it in half was so scary. Cheesy  But it was worth it in the end!  Gorgeous creation.  I really love the beaded bookmark, too.
