She is 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" and has a 2" spine. She has 3 signatures sewn into the cover with a 3-hole pamphlet stitch. You'll find 98+ pages, not including 2 small booklets with parchment paper inside and 1 double envelope with parchment sewn between them for added journaling space. The ties are sari silk ribbons and which you will find on the large tags as well, along with a charm and/or bead.
I've done my best to fill this journal with the sea, its colors, and sparkle! The mermaids are fun, beautiful, whimsical, and every little (AND big) girl's fantasy and dream. I loved watching mermaid films with my mom with I was a little girl and I still enjoy watching them today! :) How about you??
I sprayed copy paper with shades of blue, green, and gold Lindy's Starburst sprays and Glimmer Mist Diamond. I added parchment pages and pages from the digital kit I used and inked around them with either a soft teal or Ranger's Vintage Photo, whichever I thought was appropriate for what I was inking. There are printed vellum pages, too.
The focal image and several of the other images are printed on quality canvas photo matte cardstock. The focal image has been embossed with gold and there is a soft sparkly teal tulle surrounding it. At the bottom of the image, you see 2 types of lace that I sprayed with the same Lindy's spray as used on some of the pages. I wanted it to look like the ocean and mermaid scales as well.
