Hello Friends and welcome back to 49 and Market blog.
I am excited to share with you my first attempt at a Junk Journal, I have long been an admirer of these journals and have been wanting to create one. The New 49 and Market Curators Botanical collection was perfect for this project, and below are some images plus I have created a walk-through video.

To begin with, I started with a copy paper size ( 8.5 x 11) for my main paper, this was to be the cover. I trimmed the spine with the washi tape to give this journal some extra strength. You will notice throughout the journal I have done this to a few pages to give them added strength.

I cut papers from the collection to sizes I felt would work in the journal as well I incorporated the bookplates ephemera and much more in this journal. In total there are 8 pages, ( 16 using both sides)

All bound together with seam binding that I colored to match the gorgeous butterfly on the cover.

The above is the middle of the journal. This gives you an idea of how I have incorporated all the bits and pieces from the collection to embellish and add so much detail to this junk journal.

On the cover, I have used some stitched frames, tags and the Laser Cut Elements as some added layers, be sure to check out my walk-through video.
