Steampunk Journal

Hello Everyone and Happy Fall!!!  What a treat this cooler weather is :-)
Today I'd like to show you this Steampunk Journal I made.  I love, love, love Steampunk!  I started with a paper mache covered kraft journal and had fun using the Tim Holtz big Gear Die and Movers and Shapers mini Gear dies along with his Grungeboard  Hardware Findings , and  his Tattered Clock Die. I also used some Ranger Distress Inks, Ranger Distress Stains, Acrylic Paint and Ranger Glue and Seal.

I am submitting this project for the Simon Says Stamp Dies or Punches Challenge

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
