WHY JUNK JOURNAL? - There are plenty of reasons to start junk journaling. Not only is it eco friendly and a good way to recycle things you'd normally not think twice about throwing away, but it's fun, creative, a good way to kill time, and highly personalizable! Journals usually have a very strict and straightforward format with a very specific purpose (i.e. planners or diaries), but I find the mixed media approach that junk journals use is more unique.
