This Jane Austen Journal is blinged out and over the top! She is super chunky and girly to the max and I had so much fun creating her. :)

She is 8 1/2" x 6" with a 3" spine; she is a chunky girl!! ;) She has 5 signatures sewn into the cover with a 5-hole pamphlet stitch using wax linen thread. I made the cover using chipboard which I covered with Bazzill cardstock. The spine of the cover is reinforced with Tyvek for added strength. The signatures are placed 1/2" apart for extra space within the signature.
Types of papers used: Red River 26# photo matte, RR 60# canvas photo matte, coffee-dyed papers, parchment, various lined note pads, vellum, 110# cardstock, 65# Neena Exact Vellum Bristol (Ivory), and various designer paper pads in my stash.
You will find lots of lace, appliques, trims, and ribbon. I used lots of half-backed gems and pearls, and other bling. I used Wink of Stella Clear to add sparkle to many of the printed roses.
