DIY: Timekeeper Steampunk Album



I loved every minute of making this steampunk album! It features cogs, steam and ofcourse clocks!

This album took me exactly one day to make. Every time you see me inking, I ink all the borders with the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. And every time you see me measuring without showing the ruler, it means I am measuring exactly half of the paper!

Check out my blog at http://your-juliet.net for all the info & pictures on this project 🙂
