Junk journal swap Theme Old Victorian :0) When I think of Old Victorian many different items come to mind, lots of flowers, roses especially, lace, steampunk, ephemera, tea dyed pages, tea time, parasols, old black and white photos. I challenge you to search your stash of papers and goodies and put together a lovely Junk Journal for your partner.

Generally made out of old books covers, junk journals are sweet little books using "junk" or paper and scraps from your stash. Many people enjoy tea or coffee dye-ing their chosen paper before making the signatures. I personally love adding lined paper that has been tea stained/dyed.

This swap is themed Old Victorian please keep to the theme adding your own touch/twist. Read your partners likes and dislikes and try to incorporate their favorite color or something like that.

The cover should be at least 4inches by 6inches, feel free to make it larger. Can be made from foam sheet, old second hand book cover, or a file folder made sturdy to be a cover.

Two or more signatures, each signature should contain a minimum of five pages, making the signature ten pages in the book. A signature is a grouping of papers gathered together and folded in half to make one section in a book.

Please bind the signatures with string, for a tutorial please copy and paste the links i have added.

Embellish the pages while leaving lots of room for writing. Embellishment ideas can include but are not limited by envelops, pictures, lace, washi, stamping, tabs, doilies, ephemera,

The cover of the book should be decorated as well. I love creating a mixed media decorated cover but also enjoyed adding a simple tasteful picture to the outside or just some lace.

please make something you would appreciate receiving. Any questions or comments please write below and or Private message me.

Here are some you tube tutorials for junk journals. I can not wait to see what you make :0)
