There are lots of things you can do with your journal sketches. The most obvious thing you can do with your journal sketches is turn them into paintings, based on those sketches. Whether you want to use your sketches or paintings made from those sketches, you can turn your artwork into unique jewelry.

About a year ago I started printing some of my sketches and paintings on shrink plastic (I was using an Epson R800 at the time and working with white Grafix Ink Jet Shrink Film). I would cut the printed images and punch holes, before heat shrinking them into small disks that I could use in necklaces or on pins.
