So without further ado here is the journal.
1. Most all of the paper is by Graphics 45 and is called "Steampunk Debutante". I did a color wash of metallic blue over the background paper because it was greener then I wanted. Then I rubbed Gold Leaf Rub-N-Buff on the edges.
2. The goggles are made from some leather scraps I had and Tim Holtz gear die cut. I cut some extra circles to make the rims above and below the gears to make them deeper. The lenses are the packaging plastic from Tim Holtz clock faces which happened to fit perfectly. I have some gears floating around in one side and a lens that flips back on the other.
3. The wings on the "flight" goggles are embossed from an embossing plus cutting folder called "Vintage Collage". I cut it from brown paper and then rubbed Gold Leaf Rub-N-Buff over the raised areas.
4. As you can see the title of the journal is an eclectic mix of various pieces and parts from whatever I could find. Here's the breakdown on what each letter is made of.
