Creating a Junk Journal

Hello creative friends.  Hope your week is going well, mine is going good.  This past weekend I completed a journal page and was hoping to have it ready to post for the Creative Arts Collaboration group and event this past weekend for #LoveSpringArt, but was not able to get it completed and edited in time.  I also was not able to get it ready to post today, however I was able to get another video ready to share on a junk journal that I created the weekend before last.  I saw a video that Shannon Green posted on YouTube showing a junk journal that she created and it inspired me to create one myself using junk mail, advertising, cards, envelopes, packaging and scrap paper that I have been collecting.  I figured this would be a good way to repurpose and recycle all of this stuff I have been saving and put it to good use.  I can use it to play around with paints, markers and other products and supplies; And experiment with new techniques and ideas.  This video shows a flip through the journal I created, but does not show how I put it together.  Shannon's video is the best I have seen on YouTube showing how to create and bind a junk mail journal and can be found here if interested in seeing how she put hers together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxjsW0-4b7M

Here is the video I created showing the flip through the journal I created:

I will be getting the video of the journal page I created this past weekend edited and post by next Tuesday.  Hope you try putting together your own junk journal.  Thank you for stopping by.  Until next time, happy creating.
