A lot of time was spent on the fabric cover details with hand stitching and decorating. I printed a couple of pages from the digital kit I used to create this journal onto muslin and then I glued that piece to another muslin piece. I slow-stitched and decorated the fabric and then I glued it onto the 120# cover that I had reinforced with Tyvek. 2 layers of lace go all around the cover and it is machine stitched to the fabric cover. Most all of the lace incorporated into the decoration on the fabric cover face is vintage.
A variety of papers, including vellum, tea-dyed copy paper, matte photo paper, and 2 different weights and types of cardstock, were used.
Lace was used inside to decorate 12 of the page edges, and the widths grow larger and cascade over the edges as you move toward the back of the book. Lace was also used to decorate the tags, pockets, and such. Some trims and applique were used as well.
You'll find 2 altered paper clips, stenciling, and stamping inside.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look at Aimee! :)
