Morning all... it is still morning, just:) as promised here's the cover of my journal.
The book cover started life green. This is how it ended up once I'd finished spritzing, splashing, rubbing, swooshing and of course spraying!!! please don't ask me what I used cos I can't remember:) .
The spine of my old book, which originated from University College London...engineering! was quite ripped and torn with the possibility of splitting apart so I covered it with some Graphics 45 12x12 paper from the Steampunk Debutante Collection. ...hence name of journal. (The other side of this paper is to die for...yummy!) I think it's self explanatory that I cut around the cogs and wrapped it around the back of the book thus thoroughly reinforcing the spine.
The label from the same collection has been crackled with TH distress crackle.
The" fastener" is from an old curtain hook, the old lace from my stash..no idea how I'm going to fasten the lace at the back .. I want to be able to undo it easily...
I might keep the contents secret :) or I might..share:))

ROFL... Just looked up Deutante in Collins dictionary!
A young uper-class woman formally presented at court... or
a young woman regarded as being upper-class, wealthy and frivolous!!...
mmm.... I qualify as frivolous but only when it comes to crafty stash!! :))
