So, this is my last completed journal that I have newly listed in my Etsy shop. I've been busy listing a few other things as well and it feels good to get caught up finally.
Here it is without anymore ado...
This 5.5" X 8" StoryBook travel journal "Journey" has 55+ pages which include a combination of vintage Four Star onion skin, lined writing, vintage linen, sketch, and watercolor papers, on which you may journal, sketch, draw, paint, and glue.
Original Title Page
Each page of this journal is hand inked, stamped and bound between covers which were created from a 1941 Children's Reader called "If I Were Going".
Name and Date page.
I have designed 4 double-sided pocket dividers using premium double sided card stock papers from the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Travel Collection "Destinations", embellished with pockets, clips, double-sided tags printed with vintage images, leather and fabric, metal page turn tabs, vintage tea dyed seam binding ribbon, small vintage-like Par Avion envelope, tiny tags, paper lace, buttons, coin envelopes,a vintage 1930's lotto card, 12 removable double-sided tags.
Each divider is also a full page pocket with top opening with lots of room for storing those secret or special items that don't fit or that you don't want everyone to see on the pages.
Divider 1 Backside
This page has 3 side pockets; one is paper lace, with a vintage seafaring postcard tucked in.
Each facing page after the divider is a Four Star onion skin paper. Every page of this journal is hand inked, and stamped.
The Correspondence page. This page is divided in half with 2 top opening pockets, On the top half there is a side opening pocket and a and strip pocket. There is a map tag tucked in the side opening pocket and 3 smaller tags slipped in the strip pocket. The bottom half of the page has a side pocket with 2 tags slipped in and a little "Air Mail" strip pocket with a stamp tag.
These page pockets are just right for holding mailing lists, stamps, postcards, and envelopes.
