Allsorts Challenge this time is hosted by Mervi and the theme is Something New.
As you know I go on Facebook and there is a group on there for Journal Junkies.
I have never tried this before but it intrigued me so this is my first attempt.
This is the front and I used a gorgeous tag sent to me on my
first swap in another group on FB by a lady called Veonnifer.
The back with some handmade flowers also sent by Veonnifer
Spine decorated with beads and danglers.
I will use it like a memory book, cutting bits out of magazine, poems, sayings, receipts etc.
As I suffer periodically with depression I thought this would be good to record thoughts.
I put 3 signatures inside
( these are sets of pages)
This is the first one.
All scraps of papers and envelopes, doilies too.
The middle one I kept in more summery colours.
The idea is, I think, to add journalling, glue pics, receipts, memory joggers, anything at all.
Some make them from used envelopes, junk mail
(which is where the name comes from I think).
I used lots from my scrap drawer which is why there are some tiny pages in the middle of each signature.
And this is the final one for a Wintery feel.
The two images are from a 12 x 12 set I have had for ages, didn't want to throw it away as I knew it would come in useful sometime.
The same with some rectangle paper doilies too.
I have used one in each of the signatures,
as shown in the last photo.
The first part of this one I am keeping for recording my swaps.
And the final part to keep tags with my thoughts on.
I made a pocket for them and stamped with some very apt sayings from a John Lockwood stamp set.
