My newest creative endeavor available for sale in my Etsy shop, CraftyOldLady59 is this sweet little Victorian style junk journal which I lovingly handcrafted using a large manila envelope!
The cover is made from creamy textured wallpaper which I aged by inking and embellished with cheese cloth, a vintage business card and a bow collage.
This delightful one of a kind journal has 72 pages some of which are scrapbook papers in tan and yellow tones while others are tea dyed copy papers and ledger papers.
Included are two coffee dyed doilies and two original German vintage music score pages (not copies!)
Many of the pages are also hand stenciled and stamped.
Special features include:
- a handmade mini envelope
- handmade policy envelope
- a handmade replica of an antique brown envelope
- a fabric flip, paper flip, and two corner flips.
- a corset pocket
- a library card pocket
- and various other pockets and tuck spots filled to the brim with 34 pieces of unique, vintage, handmade and truly one of a kind vintage ephemera such as old business cards and advertisements, a guest check, two order forms, and two index cards all tea dyed to give then that vintage look!
Some of the vintage ephemera contained within this journal are copies of my own family heirloom bills, receipts, and letters that were saved throughout the generations and passed down to me and are also available for sale in my Etsy Shop.!
For a flip through and more detailed look at every page and each piece of ephemera in this journal please watch the video below!
