Discover the best sites for free junk journal printables, art journal printables and creative journal printables.
If you love to make creative journals and junk journals as much as I do, then you’re no doubt always looking for fresh and interesting clipart, ephemera and printables to include in them.
Although commercial resources are readily available, they can be quite expensive to purchase. This is especially true if you’re on a budget.
Luckily there are lots of websites that offer free junk journal printables, clipart, and ephemera. Most of these sites include vintage-style images that are just perfect to use as printables for your junk journals and other handmade journals.
Free digital images can be printed out on your home printer or they can be used as design elements if you love to create your own printables in Photoshop or other types of photo editing software. These are some of my favorite websites for sourcing free images and design resources, particularly free junk journal printables.
