Well, life has been relatively crazy lately with work and all so I haven't had the time to post any of my new work. I'm really excited about a new scrappy, Remains-of-the-Day- type of journal that I just posted in my Etsy shop.
It's sort of a shabby chic design. The cover is made from recycled denim from old jeans, cotton batik, cotton twill, laces and trims.
The cover has a hook and eye closure and a handmade denim and lace flower decorates the flap on the cover.
There is a denim pocket on the inside of the front cover which would be great for keeping pens, pictures, ephemera or notes.
The signatures are hand-sewn.
The pages are made of a combination of Strathmore 80 lb. drawing paper and a few sheets of lightweight Rives paper.
For added character the pages are of differing widths and heights.
I decorated the pages with stitched-on laces, trims and watercolor and drawing papers which have been splatter painted with acrylic paints.
