Easter Junk Journal Flip Through

The Joys of Junk Journaling

Not sure what got me on the Junk Journaling path earlier this year, but here I am. Any other junk journal junkies out there?

My first junk journal was for Halloween and had a macabre "embalmer/funeral director" theme. Here's a flip through of the finished product (I gave it to an online acquaintance):

Yesterday, I finished stitching a Christmas Junk Journal (my 2nd full-length one). Flip through below:

Haven't shared much of my jewelry designs on here (I've been making jewelry for over two years now)--so I'm applying that to making ephemera for junk journals--for example, "journal jewelry", "bling" or dangles (as they're often called. Here's two sets below (might make some for Christmas), that are in our ChezBoyer Etsy Shop here:Dangle capture

Also, some beaded and fabric tassels (found here):

But I admit--my favorite media to work with these days are paper, ink and string. It grounds me--the complete opposite of writing. Elementally speaking if writing is Air (and some Fire, for motivation)--then Junk Journaling (and paper crafting) is Earth, with a good dose of Water.

And interesting flip, considering I was so Air/Fire for so long. 

I'm glad for the "balancing"--and grounding. It suits me now. 

For now.
