It took me several months to finish, but my mail art junk journal, made from envelope art, is finally complete.
I get a lot of mail. A lot of it comes from the art exchanges that I host four times a year. Often, the art people send in comes in beautiful envelopes that I set aside. I decided to take these envelopes and use them as the basis for this latest junk journal.
I’ll be honest, this junk journal took me months to complete. It was a big undertaking!
I made a video of the first part of the process in constructing the junk journal. Here I show you how I measured the for the covers, how I cut things out, made the hinges with Tyvek, and then covered them with envelopes.
After I had it constructed, then the fun could begin! I went through my pages and decorated them.
Some I didn’t need to decorate because the envelope was already beautiful, like the one above on the left. I added these blocks of stamps on the envelope on the right side. I also added the rubber stamping, of course.
