back again with another storybook journal this one is called "the story of a girl", inspired from the premium double-sided card-stock paper collection by echo park called "sweet girl".
this 4 - 7/8" X 5 - 5/8" storybook journal was created from a 1925 children's book from the "honey bunch" series. there are 50+ hand stamped pages which include a combination of vellum, vintage lined writing,vintage linen, sketch, and vintage graph papers, on which you may journal, sketch, draw, paint, and glue.
i will be listing this in my etsy shop when i finish posting here.
