Steampunk Voyage by Ephemera’s Vintage Garden

Another printable journal kit by Ephemera’s Vintage Garden. This kit is much less flowery, very masculine and steampunk. Lots of maps, clocks, and machines. Again, I used the signature binding method, six signatures with a double page from the kit and computer paper, sewn into a piece of cardstock, which was then glued into a recycled file folder. I made some tabs from scrap, and inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I’m acquiring quite a little pile of scrap as I cut paper down to size for these journals, so I’ve been trying to include them as tags, inserts, and journaling spots within the kits. It’s been a good challenge to figure out how to use long narrow strips of plain white paper. The challenge continues…

This is the last kit from Ephemera’s Vintage Garden, next week we’ll take a look at the first journal kit from Tsunami Rose.
