Junk Journaling is a fun creative form of journaling that has no rules other than your imagination. You can use scrapbook papers, or make your own papers, using inks, stencils, stamps, add lace, basically anything goes. By adding envelopes and tuck spots to your page, you are creating more spaces to journal and to keep memorabilia in.
To make your double fold spread. Fold your a4 sheet of scrapbook paper in half, (or any paper you wish to use) use a bone folder to score. Take a kraft envelope and glue down the flap only to the left side of the centre fold, as per photo.
Take a piece of scrapbook paper and cut it to 3 inches wide and the length of your paper, place glue at the top and bottom only, and place as per photo. For my journaling paper I used some paper that I had tea stained and baked in the oven. You can use paper from a notebook, photocopy paper, whatever you have. Trim a sheet to fit inside the width of the envelope, and place as shown in the photo. I did not apply any glue to this, as the band holds it. It also means it can be taken out to journal on, and you can tuck things underneath.
Glue the Card Blank to the back of the envelope. Cut down some more paper to form note sheets, and attach to the inside of the blank card as shown, using double sided tape. I used a stapler and added lace over the top.
I used an old doily for the front of the card and a quote, and tied some cord around, a charm can be hung from this, you could use a paper doily and distress it with inks, or a fabric piece.
I used some Rice Paper and trimmed it to fit the other side of my envelope, (as per photo) I applied tape to the left side edge only, so it flaps up, again allowing to journal underneath, and access into the envelope. You could use a tag, or journal card. I used Distress Ink to stain my lace, and used scraps to edge. This spread has plenty of room to add in photos, you want to create layers and hidden spaces to journal and place memorabilia in.
