GIU day 2

and if you were here yesterday you know how it works...so I'm just going to jump right in
this is a little junk journal that I made with some old junk mail, the cover is the only "new" paper I used...and I painted the background, then stamped my unity stamps and I only added a little color to my lil flower at the bottom with some fingernail polish (it I wanted a pastel color and somewhat of a transparency and there was nail polish in front of me so...why not?) I have wanted to make one of these kind of journals for a while now and I'm so glad I did, now I'm creating art and recycling at the same time!
have any of you made a junk journal? If so please leave a link I'd love to see...I'm new to junk journaling and love inspiration!

I have bought a journal ... and have yet to do anything with it! lol
I love that you call it a junk journal, so fun, really. I think I will call mine that, too, whenever I get to it. lol This is a really cute page and I find it interesting that you used nail polish to color ... has me thinking ...

Love the idea of recycling mail. Every day I walk an armful of catalogs directly to the trash after the mail delivery at work. Very pretty colors on your journal.
