Steampunk Passport Journal for Creative Embellishments

I have a new passion, Oh my!!  It's these journals that are bound with elastic cord similar to a Midori journal.  I made this one with Sizzix's passport die and it is just so darn cute.  I love the miniature size, it's 3.5" x 5" and it's about 1.125" thick.  Soooo, I dug deep into my stash and pulled out Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante and lots of Creative Embellishment steampunk chippies to make this journal.

On the cover I used the Steampunk Clock and Gear Cluster, it pretty much covers the face of the journal.  To give it a nice aged look, I heat embossed it with Stampendous Aged Copper embossing enamel.  The copper and patina in the enamel really match the papers well.  I love the mini dress form chippies and used them throughout the book.  There are 6 dressforms in a package which is so great!

I made gear clusters throughout the journal simply by stacking 1" and 3/4" gears together.  To color the gears, I gave them a quick misting with Lindy's Moonshadow Golden Doubloons mist. 

Another of the fun dressforms!  I really love how the dress forms are etched with the floral design.

More gears....

One the left you can see the closure for the mini. You can make a sturdy closure by cutting a piece of cardstock and then covering both sides with washi tape. I glued a velcro closure to the flap and to the back of the journal to hold it closed.
