I never thought I’d actually want to take apart or alter a book – that is, until I saw how amazing these altered book journals can be! This is really one of the coolest ideas I’ve ever seen. I’ve been keeping journals since I was about 8 or 9 years old but I’ve only recently gotten into junk journaling. If we’re being honest, I did use some junk journal techniques in the past but I didn’t actually know that is what I was doing. It was just happenstance.
However, I recently uncovered this entire culture around junk journaling and I am obsessed! One technique sometimes used in this type of journaling is altered books. Here, you take an old book and you turn it into a journal. It’s really awesome.
