"Medieval Rose Motif" Vintage Journal is filled with gorgeous and romantic rose covered images reflecting the Medieval era.

This journal is 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" and has a 2 1/2" spine.  She has 4 signatures which were handsewn into the cover using a 3-hole pamphlet stitch.  You'll find 128++ pages (counting fronts and backs each page as you would any book), not including the 2 small booklets included for more journal space.  I made the cover using medium weight chipboard which I covered with 110# printed cardstock inside and out and it is reinforced with Tyvek for added strength.  

The focal image on the front has been embossed with gold and the edges of the journal have been gilded with Inka Gold. The spine cover has been embossed with roses and the binding threads are covered.  After that, I applied lace down the center of the spine.  The book has Sari Silk ribbon ties, various types of laces scattered throughout, 3 charms on bulb pins, and decorative metal corners.

I used several types of papers in the making of this journal:  Coffee-dyed copy paper, Red River 26# photo matte for the printed journal pages, vellum for some of the envelopes and four pages within the journal, parchment paper, Red River 60# Canvas photo matte cardstock,110# cardstock, and 67# Neena Exact Bristol Vellum cardstock.

Price includes shipping via 1st Class postage in U.S.A ONLY, please. She will be shipped within 1 to 3 business days.

The gorgeous kits used in the making of this journal are from Medieval Mirage on Etsy.  They are Medieval Rose Motif Vol. 1, Vol. 2, and the Add-on Kit and some various Maidens from other kits.
