Junk Journal Travelers size
Junk Journal in a travel size
The travel size for these journals is 10×6. They are made from a manila folder and then covered with muslin fabric to make an excellent base to add any decoration you would like. They have a thick decorative paper glued to the insides to make them a very sturdy journal cover. On the backside, there is still a folder pocket in which you can put things you may collect.
When I made these journals, I had a picture in my mind of old suitcases that had stickers attached to them from all the places and events the travelers had gone. I thought these would be nice to attach the mementos of your travels too.
Junk Traveler Journal #1
In the above pictures, I am showing one of the flower elements in the journal. There was a piece of a vintage dresser scarf laying on the edge of the page and then a leaf trim stitched on top of it. A crochet flower with beads in the center was attached to the top of the trim.
There is an image of the tassel charm that is attached to the spine of the journal.
Junk Traveler Journal #2
This journal is my favorite one. It has a gypsy theme to it, and it has my preferred colors. The lacey edges with beads attached are just gorgeous.
The page image above shows a picture element that is in the book and a page that is coffee dyed with a doily imprint. The picture of the gypsy can be removed and replaced with one of your photos, or you can write on the back of that image and on the paper behind the image to make it a hidden message.
There is also a photo of the tassel charm attached to the spine of the journal.
Junk Traveler Journal #3
In the photos above, there is a tag spot collage with a large tag behind it. On the opposite page is a CD case envelope with a beautiful rose tag.
There is a photo of a pocket with a crochet pocket sewn on top of it with tags in both pockets.
Junk Traveler Journal #4
In the photos above you see the journal standing open showing off the lovely lacey edges to the pages.
There is a collage page with a lovely saying about Faith. There is another image showing a flower element. There was green silk material sewn gathered down the edge of the page and a crochet flower attached at the top.
There is also an image of the tassel charm that is attached to the spine.
