"Sometimes I feel broken, sometimes I feel mended, today I feel tidy whilst sitting in a mess. "
This quote came to me one day several years ago. I've made it into paintings and put it on journals which sell every time! It seems to strke a chord.
This journal has been made with my hands (not a machine). It's the first one on the left as shown in the photo with the others.
Each journal I create is unique. This one's been made to draw or write in. I've used a selection of papers I had in the studio. Some have been dyed in coffee, some in dye (using my secret technique). They're different weights and in some cases, different sizes.
The details: The journal measures : 110 x 150 mm & the spine is 40mm
It has approximately 140 pages in (if you write on both sides). I've bound the journals with linen thread, using a version of straight stitch (or long stitch) binding. They're as snug as a rug!!
I create several at once, so if this isn't quite your style, please do have a peek at what else is in the shop. Start the new year by capturing your dreams in your new journal or writing down what lessons 2020 brought to your doorstep. I'm sure we could all fill a few journals doing that, right?!
