Creative Team Project for Ephemera's Vintage Garden~Junk Journal

Happy Thursday, Everyone!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Today I have a Creative Team Project for Ephemera's Vintage Garden!  I am using Miss Lady Fay for the next couple of months and let me tell you, this kit is GORGEOUS; not to mention I absolutely love magnolias!

I used an old book that I picked up at a thrift store, and took all the pages out of it.  I was left with just the cover.  I stained it with several colors and then sealed it.  The image on the front is one of the pages included in the kit.  I sewed around the edges and left the threads hanging off to give it that shabby look.  I added a seam binding bow and a flower charm to the spine as well as a seam binding closure.  All of the seam binding I hand dyed.
It measures 6-1/4 x 9-1/2 inches and the spine is 1 inch.  It has 3 sewn-in signatures.  There are 78 pages, counting front and back, 23 pockets, 21 tuck spots, and 1 envelope on the inside back cover.

 All of the pages have been hand-dyed as well.  There is stitching throughout, with many decorative elements such as lace, and trim.

 This journal comes with 8 hand dyed tags; 4 of them are stamped, and the other 4 are left blank so that you many decorate them any way you wish.
Again, thank you so very much for visiting me today!  I really appreciate it!  Have a wonderful day!
