One of a Kind Handmade Journal
by Elis Cooke.
“There is only one great adventure and that is inwards toward the self.”--Henry Miller
This journal is made with 2 sturdy canvas panels as the covers. It has a flexible spine of handmade book cloth so it opens flat for ease of writing or sketching. It has an elastic to keep it closed when not in use or for travelling.
It is decorated with collage and painted with acrylic paints. The inside covers are glazed with copper paint and distressed.
It arrives with 20lb bond paper and has a unique binding that makes it refillable with any type of paper you choose (water colour paper, sketch paper, scrap booking paper).
These refillable journals make great art journals because you can easily remove your page to work on it with wet media, then replace it once it dries.
Cut Refill Paper to: 8 1/2x14[legal] [ 8 1/2x7 folded]
Because this size uses Legal size paper it is also a great size for creating your own pages/ daytimer/ lists on the computer and using them in your journal.
This journal has 6 folio sections which could be used for separate topics. ie writing, sketching, photos, scrapbooking, painting, art journalling, to do lists, daytimer etc.
