This is a unique hand made junk journal on the theme of the Steampunk and Victoriana.
The designer papers and ephemera I have used in this journal are from Graphic 45 The Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Steampunk Debutante. There are also some pages included from other craft papers.
There are 50 pages in all, 100 pages front and back, not including half pages and all the pages have been inked with distress ink in Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs to give a slightly grungy look. The book measures roughly 8.5 inches by 6 inches and includes a wide variety of papers to journal and draw on, add photos and personal ephemera. There are handmade envelopes, paper bags, tuck spots, pockets, journaling cards and tags.
The book covers have been inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink and coated with Mod Podge Hard Coat to add durability. The front cover has been collaged and layered, with Glossy Accents used for emphasis and to add dimension. There are metal cogs on the cover with brass book corners on the front and back covers for protection. The book has been hand bound using my Bind it All.
This is a handmade item and any imperfections add to the uniqueness and character of the piece.
Although this journal was photographed in natural light, please make allowances for colour differences between monitors.
