Junque Journal Love

I love my junque journal! I can't wait to fill it up and start another one!

After getting interested in art journals, I came across this video about altering Composition Notebooks. I've done that before....back here in 2008, but this video, by Rita Hutcheson Cobbs, made me take another look.

Can you believe how happy she is? Such enthusiasm! It made me want to create I grabbed a few more composition notebooks and started in!

In the meantime, I found this next video, Junque Journal Introduction, and knew I wanted to make a book like this!

Tangiebaxter's tutorials:
Part Two
Part Three

I love these videos. I've watched them over and over and over, and learned how to break out of my box and and just play! Scrapbooking, Art Journals, Junque Jounrals. This mixed media stuff is fun!

My Sweet Magnum

I lost my beautiful boy on Monday. It was sudden. He wasn't feeling well, very sluggish, running a slight fever. It was cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma. An insidious, aggressive form of oral cancer. I hate cancer. It keeps taking my loved ones from me.

Journal Me This Swap

I joined the Journal Me This swap at YourPaperPantry. Jane was my partner and made a beautiful layered page with turned edges and romantic detail. I love this page.
