The Victorian Man Mini Journal ScraPerfect DT

Good morning ScraPerfect Fans, I am here today with my next DT project! I made a fun mini junk journal this time, featuring this very dapper Victorian Man on the Cover.
I used the Tim Holtz Found Relatives Cards for the front and back cover for the journal.

For the spine, I used some vintage embroidery from a table runner, I coffee dyed it and it worked out great!

I punched at hole in the journal to add a fun little tag with a handsome stamped image on top of it.

Once I had the base together, it was time to add my coffee dyed papers. I made 2 signatures, and with the help of the Best Glue Ever, I popped a few dots of the glue in my knots to tie the signatures and this will help to keep them from ever coming undone.

I also used BGE on several other elements throughout my journal, including adding some lace to the cover, and adding some of the Rhinestone Wheel of Embellies to the centre of my Penny Farthing Bicycle.

I also added some BGE to the spine of the signatures to help hold them in the book when I bound the book.

For some of the pockets, I created tags using masculine fabrics, that I got as samples from furniture companies in the mail. These are FREE and great to use on a project like this!

I also used BGE to glue in the pocket on the inside cover from more of my free sample material.

A doily, vintage fabric button and coffee dyed sari silk finished off my tags.

And once again, here he is, a wee little ode to all the father's out there, past and present, whom we all love.
Happy Father's Day!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here today.
