Daily Junque Journal

 
One of my favorite projects from this year was my London Calling mini book (check it out here) made from cardboard boxes.  I have been wanting to make something similar and last week I sat down with some cardboard and a pile of Pink Paislee Daily Junque papers and embellishments.  I tried to keep a little bit more of the cardboard look with this book by cutting down my paper a little smaller and peeling back the top layer of cardboard.  I really just made this for the fun of it - I love the vintage photos in the book but they aren't of anyone I know -I like this type of project because it allows you to use products you love and focus on new techniques and pushing yourself rather than creating something that has to have a certain purpose.  I love how it turned out and can't wait to make another one!
