This journal is constructed from a 9x12 envelope and contains Canson 136 lb acid free "canva-paper.” This paper is fabulous for mixed media, watercolors, or any other type of wet medium. There are two hand-sewn signatures with 12 pages each. That gives you a total of 24 surfaces. Each page measures 5 1/2” x 8.”
This journal is closed with small white eyelash trim and pink lace. The front and back covers contain a pocket. The cover is collaged with vintage book text, Tim Holtz tissue, and various scrapbook papers. I also embellished the cover with a bit of stamping. All stamping was done with archival ink. It has been sealed with ModPodge, and then very lightly waxed with Daddy Van’s all natural unscented beeswax to prevent any stickiness.
I added a natural-colored tassel, made of twine, and several handmade paper beads to the strings on the spine. You can easily position it above the journal, out of your way, to ensure the journal lays flat when working inside.
