[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Come and play as you create a beautiful, unique mixed media junk journal with a custom canvas cover and fill it with an explosion of colorful, handmade paper notebooks! We’ll learn a variety of techniques and explore different media to create beautiful junk journal covers using canvas and embellish with colorful ribbon, felt, buttons and other unique ephemera! We’ll create the notebooks using an assortment of paper for the covers and vintage & recycled paper for the inside pages. These are perfect for bullet journaling, list making, planning and art journaling! We’ll also get a chance to play in our junk journals and create beautiful, layered collage and mixed media backgrounds. The notebooks are interchangeable and can be used in planners or traveller’s notebooks or even used separately as travel art journals! Come learn all the possibilities as we build your own colorful, custom junk journal!
