What is a Junk Journal?

A handmade book made up of store bought papers to recycled items such as magazines, brochures, painted paper, music sheets, envelopes, packaging, brown paper bags, maps, greeting cards, post cards, doilies, to name a few. The book covers can be made from old book covers or any heavier/stiff cardboard (cereal boxes, file folders, chip board, etc).

This class is about making a journal that is personalized to you. It might be simple and refined for the purposes of managing your daily tasks or sketching ideas for your next project. On the other hand your journal could be an exuberant expression of your life – favorite quotes, inspirational images, or secret goals!

Supplies Students to bring:
  • Apron (this is going to get messy!)
  • Extra rag or old towel for spills
  • Craft mat – for painting and gluing
  • Self-healing cutting surface

Lynn will bring the rest!!
