A jumble of journals

Jumble was the closest thing I could come up with to describe my stack of journals:


I love doing journals even though I'm not great at it. But it's soooo therapeutic & fun to try different things - and make lots of mistakes!

You can use just about anything as a base, like cardboard or blank craft books....




Paper bag journals (<---- bottom journal) are really fun. They have pockets formed by the open ends of the bags so you can make cards to stuff in them or you can put personal items in them.



   

You can also just use the cover of an old book or a regular school composition book. 



Or make your own covers. I made one out of burlap to keep my watercolor paper creations in. And I've also used thin chipboard sheets to make a little booklet. It's easy to add new pages as you go. 



No matter what you choose, have fun creating! I'm a novice who sometimes doesn't have a clue but I learn new things in the process that I can incorporate into other projects. And it's a great way to use your scraps!
