This journal is called "TimeKeeper" and is part of my Travel in Time Series. It is meant as a time travel journal, but can be used for any occasion a special book is needed. It can be a Paris vacation, a trip to Africa, a road trip, or journey to your soul......
The covers have many layers of paint, pastes, mediums and elements, to achieve a "weathered" steampunk look. Although the surface looks rusted, rough and well-used, it is treated with wax and special mediums, and has a surprising soft and velvet touch. At the front cover, there is a big clock decorated with metal gears and a metal octopus.
The finish has been made with several layers of ecological varnishes, to protect the artwork and ensure the vitality of colors for many years to come.
It contains 122 pages (counting both sides)- some printed , and the rest hand stamped, painted , distressed and decorated by me. All pages are of high quality recycled paper of 240 gsm, in a very beautiful creamy tone, that makes it look old. It is also acid free, chlorine free and suitable for photos. All the distressing has been done with special inks and not coffee or tea, to ensure that the paper will keep its neutral PH, be photo safe and last for meny years!
It is bound using strong 3-ply Crawford's Irish linen thread in Black and has a matching page marker with a gear.
The spine is made using a very soft brown man made leather and is decorated with a cluster of charms on a metal chain. There is an also a hook left empty for you to further personalize the book.
Its size is 17,5 x 25cm ( 7 x 10 inches).
It comes with its own black non-woven bag, to be stored safely and/or be nicely presented as a gift.
