Picture heavy post!!
I made this vintage junk journal for a swap I was hosting. My partner asked for a journal using an old book. It isn't real "junky" but I loved how it came out. It was the first time I've made one using a book and found it a bit challenging.
I removed all the pages from the book and made my own signatures. Never done this before and I am new at sewing. I hand sewed the signatures into the spine to make the book. I cut a square out on the cover to place a vintage image in. Used old ticket stubs for tabs. Tried out tea dying for the first time! I tea dyed some of the papers and lace! I used lots of tissue tape and I used decorative border punches on the edges of several papers.
