Art Journal - Mixed Media Journal - Nature journal - Recycled Journal - Nature Sketchbook - Upcycled Journal - Blank Book - Blank Journal
As an artist and nature lover I am always looking for creative ways to repurpose materials to keep them out of the landfill. The covers of this journal are made from cardboard packaging from Ikea, and the pages are made from an abandoned roll of contractor's kraft paper. Hours of love went into making this journal, from monoprinting the covers with handmade stencils, to painting the binding to match, to stitching yarn to the edges of the pages, to sewing on vintage buttons, to hand stitching the book together with waxed linen thread. This one of a kind blank journal / sketchbook could be use with any dry media such as pencils, pastels and pens as well as with acrylic paint and paint pens. I made one for myself to use as a garden journal, but it also works well as a nature journal, mixed media journal or art journal.
