I took a new online class, by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, called Make Your Own Junque Journal and I enjoyed it immensely! Now I have 5 new journals :)
Here are photos of a few covers...
|SPARKLE front cover|
This art journal measures 8x10
|back cover detail|
A smaller one at 5 1/2 x 8, the right one is what was used for my front cover.
|front and back covers|
A monoprint on envelope paper is on this 8x10 journal. I really like the messiness and wrinkles and character this journal already has. Sets the imagination on fire for me.
|Red planet front cover|
The red planet back cover was done with molding paste through a stencil to give this great detailed dimension.

Here's the finished junque journal with a plain black spine. I just love being able to make my own books now!

5 journals of varying sizes, sigh :)
|5 bound journals|
Here you get a glimpse inside the journals...
|I spy a cute pup here|
|a line of tags there|
|and a mono printed page here|
Here's another finished one, with the image of the Empire State building on both covers. I once considered these images as "failures", don't think that anymore!
|love the polka dots!|
You may recognize this mono print from my 67 words challenge as "leave" #30 of 67. Again, not a perfectly flat, smooth surface but that just gives it character. This journal is the largest one at 9 1/2 by 12 1/4.

Leave's back cover look was done with tapes, easy and FUN.

Just had to celebrate the joy of journal making with YOU. Making stuff is awesome, don't you think?!
I'm off to do some art journaling, ta-ta for now ;)
