Ta-da! Here's the #journal! Remember I told you I went on a scavenger hunt around the house looking for the right cover? Can you guess what it is? Wallpaper scraps + dori (thread) from some old, forgotten project. I'm buzzing with ideas for more #handbound journals. That may just be up for sale. Follow along for details as and when they become available! #bookbinding #handmadebyme #ifoundhappy #handmadejournal #journaling #instartist #instacreative
Before I started art journaling, I was an avid journaler. In fact, I still am. There’s something about writing, about paying attention to each day, that draws me back to the journal.
The journal is a sacred place for me, which is why I’ve always been drawn to beautiful notebooks. But there’s something really special about handmade journals, don’t you think?
This here notebook is sitting on my bedside table, and it’s filled with ideas for some really cool handmade journals. Most of these are ideas and designs I’ve never tried before, and I’m super excited to start working on them! And since I know I’m going to end up binding way more journals than I can possibly use, I’m going to be putting them up for sale!
I’ll be sharing photographs on Instagram, so follow me there if you don’t already. And if you want to be the first to know when my hand made journals are available for sale, sign up for my monthly newsletter, Gypsy Wanderings. Subscribers will get first dibs!
Thank you so much for joining me on this journey into my art journals. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little showcase of my art. And do let me know if you’d like to continue to look into the covers of my journals more regularly, because I’d love to share what I’m creating with you!
