Starting a Junque journal!

I found a tutorial a while ago on youtube about a Junque journal. It was the first time I heard about it.
So basically it's a composition notebook* which you paint/colour/glitter/… anything you want, where you can stick items in you found/want to keep but don't know what to do with them, basically the junk you've been
hording collecting for a long time.

Here's a list of items:
Cards from Birthday, weddings, ...
cards received through swaps
drawings from your kids (or yourself)
entrance tickets to events, cinema, amusement parks, museums, …
Tickets from train, bus, plane, …
Tickets from restaurant, cafe, … which you really enjoyed
Teabags
Fortune cookie thingies
The list is endless

Items you can use to decorate your junque journal:
Old paint
Pencils
Sharpies
Paper
Chinese ink
Pastels
Ribbons
Stamps
...

Here's mine so far:


I'll give you guys an update from time to time. I'm hosting a craft-along on craftster about this here
This craft is excellent to do in the evening listing to your fav music, relaxing from a busy day.

*If you don't have such a notebook, like I did, just grab a notebook with a hard cover.
