What is a Junk Journal?
A Junk Journal is made from ‘found’ materials. Unlike an Art Journal or diary where most of the inside pages are blank, a Junk Journal is created with papers, ephemera from your daily life (lists, receipts, scribbles, ecoprinted paper, photos, etc) and recycled to make a beautiful journal! Many people embellish their journals with purchased items such as die cuts, stickers, washi tapes and so on, but the bulk of your journal is from items you can find around the house.
What will you learn in this class?
In this introductory class you will make a journal from found and common objects (cookie or cereal boxes) and personalize it with your own decorated cover. You will learn how to choose papers, combine them into signatures and then bind them into a book/journal.
There will be a wide variety of examples of junk journals and decorated pages to give you ideas of which direction you’d like your journal to take. Perhaps a daily diary, or a photo album, an account of special events, quotes you love, your favorite recipes, images from that vacation or hike…? Whatever you make will be a treasured item for family to peruse for years to come! This workshop is designed to take the mystery out of this creative art form!
Your instructor for this class is Jan Hicks!
Jan is a retired teacher and craft enthusiast! Originally from Canada, she has taught her workshops in a variety of settings and created and sold Junk Journals for years! Her expertise and journal examples will open the door to a world of expressive journaling that anyone can do!
