Junk journaling: It can only get better page by iHanna

I finally finished editing another episode of “Junk journaling with iHanna”, so here’s another video of me working in my summer meadow fabric covered Junk Journal.

Here’s the video, featuring yours truly, and my process of “junk journaling”, which is short for working in a “Junk Journal” (notebook with an eclectic mix of papers that might have ended in the trash as junk if they weren’t recycled into a new book) in my usual art journal way. :-) So a little cut and paste, a little lettering, a bit journaling and such… I hope you like it.


If you can’t see the video, or would like to add it to “watch later” or a playlist on YouTube click here to watch it on YouTube, where you can also give it a “thumbs up” or leave a comment (something I always appreciate SO much).

And in case you got really curious about the song I lettered some words from, it’s by Laleh, and it sound like this:

I love all of Laleh’s songs. I have seen her live once, which still, this many years later, makes me happy to think about.

The movie I was journaling about is the classic Charlott’s Web in the version from 1973. I’ve only seen it in Swedish, but so so many times. I loved re-watching it as it’s been many years since I saw it. We used to have it as VHS when I was a kid, but as far as I know it’s not available as a DVD in Swedish? Anyways, if you have Amazon Prime you can rent it online in case you haven’t seen it or want to relive some childhood memories of your own…

By the way, the Swedish song lyric words could be translated to something like; “It can never be as it used to be, it can only be better, be better” feels very adequate for the time right now, don’t you think? I wasn’t thinking of the pandemic, but it sure fits in a way.

Det kommer aldrig bli som fŲrr, nej, det kan
bara bli bšttre, bli bšttre…

To me it carries hope for the future, and that is what I (we all) need. I’m not sure I always believe it, but I sure wish I could.
