“Seafarer” Brown Paper Bag Junk Journal

My newest Junk Journal is made from a brown paper bag and two envelopes. My goal was to make this journal look old and well-used. I’m calling it “Seafarer”, and am imagining a sea captain using it to keep his pictures and notes in.  The pictures are from a group of postcards from Catalina Island, dated in the early 1900s, that I recently purchased.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
