Handmade, one of a kind, 64 page art journal. I love paper, I love thrifting and upcycling and dyeing, and I love color, and I love texture. All of these loves are combined in my magic art journals. This book utilizes a base of an upcycled spiral bound notebook, so the pages are BIG, which I love, and it lays flat for easy use. It feels indescribably good in the hands. Textured, kind of heavy ,crinkly, filled full of delicious textures. It even *sounds* good when you flip through it.
This book is covered in a variety of fabrics including upcycled naturally dyed cotton which I then embossed with plaster, upcycled sari silks, thrifted beaded fringe, and fabric from a vintage japanese obi.
The pages are a fantastical collection which may include any of the following, or even more things I have forgotten to list: indigo dyed paper, hand painted papers, botanically printed paper, rust dyed paper, crossword puzzles, pages from coloring books, old recipe book pages, vintage sheet music, college-rule notepaper, kraft packaging paper, construction paper, watercolor paper, pages from books, vintage encyclopedia paper, scrapbooking paper, ledger paper, vintage lace, fabrics…. anything that catches my fancy.
This book is meant to be used! Write on it, attach pictures, staple in your love letters, do what you will. I have embellished/stamped/folded/written on some pages, but left PLENTY of space for you to work your own magic. My goal with these books is to eliminate the fear of the blank page – simply open this book to any page and let the magic begin.
