Vintage Junk Journal

I love vintage paper! The pieces I've been holding on to over the years work well with the colors tan, cream and brown, which is one of my favorite palettes of color because it's easy to work with. I discovered the digital journaling kit "Gentlemen & Scholars" and knew the kind of vintage journal I wanted to make with it.

Hope you like it!

great use of design elements
by: Pizzaduke

I appreciate this design and the final outcome. Very nice work. I know these are supposed to be "manly" but I like this look better than a lot of flowers but that is just me. I especially love your cover and the stitching. Nice work!

Great journal
by: Anonymous

Fabulous junk journal - I really like the cross stitch binding on the spine. Do you have a video which shows how you did that? Also, the paper you have copied the digital images on looks like it has a really nice sheen (or was that just the lighting?) Thank you so much for the inspiration, I'd love to make something like this one day.

Simply Stunning
by: Debbie-Anne

The ephemera in your collection is amazing. I'm so pleased that this kit was the backdrop for such beautiful pieces from the past. This is by far my favorite journal you've made as a DT member (I probably said that a few times about other ones lol, but you keep topping them).

This is an absolutely beautiful piece of art you've created there, Margarete.
