Start to my Junque Journal

Hey all,

The junque journal is going well. I have about 85% of the pages either covered or inked. I want to do the others but I got distracted, of course. I decided to try art journaling also. It's also fun because of the freeing element to it. It doesn't matter what it looks like because it's just for me. I think I was really doing a form of it when I was younger but it wasn't called that or at least not as big. I think I have about 3 or 4 journals or sketchbooks going. I have two for art journaling, one as a Junque Journal, and two as inspiration books - 1 is for decorating and the other is crafting/ideas. Ah, so many ideas and things to do, so little time. I have a week left until I have to go back to school. We got my husband's room straightened out but I still have mine left to organize. It's a mess too. I'm not sure about where to put stuff and the file cabinet with a bunch of my supplies has been locked on me and I don't have the key. I'm gonna have to get someone to drill out the lock. Anyway, I'm off to bed or to go play - can't decide which.

Thanks for stopping by.

I just finished my LAST ASSIGNMENT for my LAST CLASS tomorrow!!!! I'm so excited. Have to calm down though so I can go to bed to get up early tomorrow ;)

I took pictures and a made a video of my progress so far with my journal. I'll try and get it up this weekend. Now I can work on it and my other UFPs

Junque Journal Part 1

Hello again!

Hooray! It's been driving me nuts all night and most of the day. I've wanted to make a junque journal. I've been meaning to start for a while now and had actually started a couple of junque/art journals/smash book but had then gotten swept up in life. Now I'm back at it. I pulled out the composition book that's been sitting in my craft area for months now and have adorned it with ribbon. I decided to tie the ribbon on both the top and the bottom. I've also gone through and crumpled some of the pages so that I can ink them later. Some of the pages tore but I'm not worried about since this is suppose to be a junque journal and can be as messy as I want. Crumpling the pages has already added a significant amount of depth to the book. It'll be interesting to see what happens when I start adding other things in. I'll take some pictures and add them on here later so that you all can join me in the journey. I'm also going to make a smash book and an art journal. I think I'll make them for presents also. I'm looking forward to using up my stash and creating again.

I received my inspiration from a bunch of creative people on YT. Check out tangiebaxter, littleglimpses, journalartista, and chrispea to name a few.

What a crazy summer

I know it's been a while but things have been crazy around here. It seems that the family has just spent the summer at the doctor's office. I've had to go a couple of times. My husband has had to go a few times and my Grandmom had to have rotator cuff surgery. She then had to be in a pillow sling for 6 weeks - this does not make for a happy Grandmom. She is out of it now and going to physical therapy to regain the use of her shoulder. School has been crazy also but there is a good side. I have one more class and then I am FINISHED!!! I'm so excited about almost being through. It seemed like it would take forever. Another good thing, I passed my Administrator's exam. So I can now be fully licensed as an Administrator. I am not looking to be an administrator right away, maybe somewhere down the road. We start school in a couple of weeks so we're going to try and finally squeeze in a trip to the beach. Then hopefully I can get back to my hobbies, YEAH! I'll have some updates later on.

Thanks for stopping by.
