At work we throw away several small operator's manuals each day...they're included in every box of kits we open. I was looking at one the other day and decided it would be the perfect size for a small journal. So, I took one home, glued every other page together, gessoed the pages, added a light wash of paint to each spread and a cover and here it is...a handy little junk journal! For the cover I used a page out of a 1906 book called Health and Home. Reading it I realized that the "essential" things haven't changed much in the past 107 years!  Here's a copy of the image I used...feel free to use it in your own journal.
