"Valuable Papers"
Vintage Junk Journal

by Margarete Miller
(Los Gatos, CA)



I like to use collections of things to display in my junk journals. Once I used vintage lace, another time I used a collection of postage stamps, this time I'm using a collection of world currency. I found an old folio at a garage sale and used the envelopes inside to make my collages.

In this junk journal I used the digital kit "Gentlemen and Scholars", which worked very well with vintage documents and currencies.

Mahalo for the too clever journal!
by: Brenda F-O

Turning that envelope case into a vintage papers junque journal is too clever! Love the aged looks and colors of the currency and documents. The case really makes the journal come together uniquely. Mahalo for sharing.

How Inspiring!

Now I know what to do with my grandparents old papers. Things like the receipt for their first car and the bill for my mother's birth. Thanks for the idea!
