Junk or treasure (to me it is full of treasure nd personality) journals are handmade books created from special moments and “junk” such as doodles, ticket stubs, a receipt from a romantic date, a piece of fabric from your wedding dress, small bits of artwork, or anything else you can think of! A Junk/treasure journal is a piece of artwork in itself and is a very inspiring creative process.
Also sometimes known as a “smash book,” it can be used as a sort of daily scrapbook. It also doesn’t have to be done daily if you don’t have a lot of time.
Junk journals can be all different sizes. You can make a big book or a mini book or somewhere in between.
There are tons of different ways to experience and enjoy junk journaling but hopefully this series of workshops will help you feel inspired with your own junk/treasure journal making.
Learning to create your own journal is fairly easy, and you can buy many inexpensive ones at dollar stores, fancier ones online, or even leather bound at specialty bookstores. However, it’s not hard to create a beautiful art piece with hand picked pages, handcrafted pockets, and personalized pages that tell your story. In this three part workshop, you can choose to take one, two, or all three workshops, depending on what you’d like to learn, or what you need for your personal skill set. All materials included.
Each workshop class is $100, all three for $260
1) How to start a junk journal- what is a junk/treasure journal, samples of papers used, how to create aged papers, assemble, and sew your signature.
2) Creating your pages – create 10 pages to add to your journal, with a few simple tricks you’ll learn to make a few different pockets to get you stated, and you’ll learn a few key things when putting pages into your signature.
3) Make a cover and bind your journal, then create two beautiful pages with vintage looking ephemera, and learn to apply your personality to each project.
