When I first wanted to make a journal, I was a little afraid of how it would turn out, I didn't want to make so many mistakes, and ruin pages, etc. I had been watching videos and reading blogs about all these beautiful journals being created out there and I did not think I was ready to make one myself. So after a bit of thought, I decided I would make myself a fun journal where I could try things out first.
This is a journal where I can make mistakes and try again, until I feel happy with the page/embellishment to make more for other journals.
I ended up loving the process of trying something out and seeing how it turned out; in doing so, I was able to give myself the freedom to play and have fun with it... which is how making a junk journal is supposed to be. Now I can't stop, I am doing more and more each day.
My journals are not perfect, but I feel confident enough in what I am doing to keep having fun. I also found many newbies to junk journals (like myself) sometimes share the same hesitation to get started, so I am hoping my fun journal idea helps with that process.
