In with the New

 The substrata for this journal is an old ledger
 (an eBay find, several years ago).
I plan to go with a combination 
theme of steampunk and vintage mail ephemera.

Busy gathering supplies, embellishments,
 decorative paper and various bits and bobs 
that will work with the theme.

I was thinking I might end up working in a smaller book this time
 but as usual it's almost just as big, not as thick but  taller than the last one.

Can't wait to get started!!


  1. Great idea to combine Steampunk & mail ~ so many different ways to go!
    Have fun!

  2. And are you keeping the old ledger papers in the book? I am a fool for old ledger paper and I love the size and shape. You look well prepared. xo

  3. Marylinn - Of course I'm keeping them in the book - I love the numbers and old script showing through the writing and ephemera I'll put on it. I'm crazy about old ledger pages also, which I'd been taught how to do script that way - it's so gorgeous and evocative.
