Last year I made a journal using ordinary printer paper, a USPS priority mail envelope I received in the mail, and embellished my pages with random stamps and a bunch of forms from the post office.
I never shared my little journal for two reasons. First, I made the book for me to use on a daily basis to write my “to do” lists or notes to myself. I wasn’t planning on keeping it forever, just use it up and throw it out. Second, I didn’t think anyone would be interested in what I thought was a boring little book.
I decided to share it with the group of encouraging folks who do mail art, and now I see that I should have mentioned this project before. There is some interest in it.
So here are a few photos of what it looks like inside. After making many vintage-style junk journals the white paper in this one is really stark, even with the bits and pieces of added elements.
Here’s the video for more information and a flip-through.
