Junk Journal Video: Flip through

Today I want to share a Junk Journal that I bound a while ago, but never started using at the time.

Flipping through its pages I think you’ll get a pretty good idea what you yourself could save and include in a mixed paper journal if you want to make one for yourself. So take a look, and gather your papers! I hope this flip-through video inspires you to make something similar.

Junk Journal by iHanna: What to include in your junk journal video

This Junk journal has the same fabric that the recent ring binder I altered has on its cover. I really like this fabric right now, so I was drawn to start using the journal instead of leaving it alone any longer.

The inside of the Junk Journal/Art Journal is so glorious with a mix of half-empty / half-full pages. So it’s not really empty with blank pages, if you know what I mean? I was decorating and sewing (on the sewing machine) on all the pages as I assembled them and made the journal. Instead of photographing all the pages I made a video flip-through, to show you what’s inside it.

Here’s the video below. If you can’t see the video feel free to click to see it on YouTube: Junk Journal: What to include in your junk journal pages, and while there give it a thumbs up if you enjoy it and find it inspirational.

My idea is to film as I fill this journal, but I can’t make any promises right now that all pages will be documented and shared since it’s a lot of work just to edit one video like this (for me)… But it would be a fun seriers to watch I think, how an entire Art Journal spread for spread is born. What do you think?

  1. Really enjoyed seeing the inside of your junk journal/art journal! I haven’t pulled out my journal-making supplies in a couple years now, but perhaps I should after the new year! I find journal making addictive. Once I start on one, I find I want to make a bunch. But I also find it very difficult to actually use/fill the journals I make. I enjoy the process of creating and binding them, but I haven’t found a love of filling them yet. Is that strange? Oh well. Thanks for sharing your video with us! Look forward to seeing some of your finished pages, when you get the opportunity!

  2. Hanna, I love your journal and thank you so much for sharing it with us! I’ve never made a journal as of yet but have bought a couple of them and love filling them. Would love to make one as well but will have to wait and see if I ever do or not, lol I totally LOVE the sewing you do in yours … I don’t have a sewing machine (I could never get past threading the needle on a machine, how sad is that? Ha!) Have a great day!


  3. I think your journals are lovely. Do you use them? or are they just to look at?
