We create unique, handcrafted journals that make memory keeping and journaling a fun and creative experience. Most of the journals we create have a vintage flair to them using repurposed materials, various types of ephemera, hand dyed paper, textiles, and mixed media. Hence, the name "junk journal." Our focus is on botanicals, nature, gardening and travel. Other themes offered from time to time might include Christmas, music, French inspired, and shabby chic.
I've been crafting since I was very young. I was surrounded by it growing up with a family of creative artists, crafters and seamstresses. I started out learning all types of needlework – cross stitch, embroidery, crewel embroidery and needlepoint. From there, I expanded my interests to all types of crafts including candle making, scrapbooking, crafting mini albums, making home scented and bath and body products, cardmaking, home décor sewing, mixed media art and other types of paper crafts such as quilling. About 7 years ago, I knew I had found my passion in paper crafting and making junk journals.
"In Bloom" is a one signature journal with a floral theme. It's a great journal for those who love gardens, gardening, flowers, and nature. Included in the pages of this journal is a little mixed media, some fabric and lace, a bit of stamping and stenciling, die cuts, collage, and tea and avocado dyed papers. The journal is a nice size to carry with you anywhere. There are journal cards and tags throughout for extra writing space. As an added extra to the journal, there is a decorated, avocado dyed glassine bag with extra ephemera in it that can be used to add to the journal.
