Pages for my Junk Journal

Hello! Yesterday I worked on a couple of pages for a new junk journal that I started (and no, I have not completed my nature journal yet!). I am really enjoying using some of my stash that has been accumulated over the past several years. After a long time spent deliberating over whether or not to work with vintage textiles (which I love) or with vintage ephemera (which I also love), I really found a home for both together in this thing known as "junk" journals.

This was from a large set of old Bingo cards
that I have had a while. 
The beautiful image is from 
Ireland Rose Studios on Etsy.
Also used from my vintage stash was
an old flower, rusty safety pin, 
and ledger paper...

The little "bless" word was from a digital 
printout from Iralamijashop, also on Etsy...

And this will be the facing page which
I embellished with random scraps of paper 
and fabrics,
and some machine sewing around the edge...

I'm getting ready to move on to the next set of pages.
I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July tomorrow!

    1. Thanks Dorthe. There is something so relaxing about coffee staining, and it certainly beats dumping leftover coffee down the drain! XO
