Trashy Junk Journals! The Fun Share!

This is a new thing among scrapbooker's and junk journalists, Sharing your stash of papers and clippings you've saved!


We all have access to different stores, magazines, Mail and vintage papers so why not share what you have in abundance  with someone who has an entirely different supply?  That's what I thought too, yay!!!  

Did ya hear that??  YAY!  

I was browsing around YouTube and saw a video and went and joined the Facebook group Trashy Junk Journals and signed on to do a journal swap of papers and other stuff we have in our stashes.  I had a blast making the journal cover and filling it.  Rules are...no real rules  but you are supposed to not buy a thing.  You just pick from whatever you already have saved.  

As you know usually half of what you save never gets used so what could be better?  I'm looking forward to my journal arriving.  My swap partner LOVED the one I sent.  Here it is:

Play and Dabble in the Arts!

I have found it's much more fun to make one large background for a number of ATC cards than trying to do each one individually.  Each card is still different from all others and had painted.

Artist Trading Cards are fun to make and trade too.  They are perfect to include in a Christmas card as well.  Everyone enjoys receiving a gift!


I couldn't add the much shorter "part two" to the original so had to make two videos.  Hope you enjoy!!










This summer we visited some magnificent cemeteries looking for family. 
I was astounded at some of the beautiful markers.

Flip through (so Far) in my Finished Vintage Junk Journal





This one is a little structured as far as "junky" goes.  I truly love my really junky ones!  I will be doing videos on the seven journals I'm currently playing with.

Making a Pumpkin Patch Junk Journal Page!



Watch the process of doing this journal page!

This is the double page spread so far.  I haven't embellished the Houdini page much yet but did get it painted and "napkined"  Haha!



The 1 ply napkin I added over the other pumpkins is like a ghost pumpkin!
I love how that turned out!! 


This is a sneak peek at my newest junk journal!

I have decided, and most journals do this as you work on them, that it is going to be my 
holiday and vacation journal. 

I love the randomness of the other journals that I'm pasting everything under the sun into, but this one is going to have a bit of structure.  It will be my go-to place as holidays approach.  I already know I'll have a blast working in it!
