What do you dream?
One of a kind very elegant thick journal (approximately 8 3/4" tall x 5 1/4" wide) is made from a recycled hard bound book covered with a gorgeous floral fabric imported from Japan. The colors are so rich in purple, teal and green. I love that the fabric has a great texture to it.
The spine is a citron green hand dyed (by me) suede leather.
There are 4 signatures of 20 folded pages each folded totaling 320 pages (back and front) to write or do artwork on that are stitched into the spine with purple waxed linen thread.
Paper inside is a thick Country Cream Sundance felt text Felt 70 lb in weight and durable enough to hold up as an art journal as well as a memory book or writing journal. This book is chunky and should keep one busy filling it up with dreams for a long time.
Spine is embellished with white, green and teal glass beads and secured with black lip shell buttons.
This journal has the special added feature of a built in book mark made of hand dyed silk ribbon in citron, purple and blue braided and finished off with a ceramic Asian bead.
The endpapers (in this case fabric instead of paper) are a hand dyed purple cotton fabric with silver and citron shimmery acrylic paint spattered on it. Fabric edges are frayed to soften the edges and add texture.
The word DREAM is stamped on a small piece of hand dyed purple muslin sewn to a piece of rich teal velvet sewn on fabric with purple thread. Embellished with antique mother of pearl buttons.
This journal is a piece of art work in itself. I delight in hand dying fabric, fraying edges, getting ink and dye all over me and bringing all the elements of beads, leather, images together to make my books. I love what I do and hope you enjoy these books as well.
They make fabulous gifts especially for the art journalist. Bound in such a way that the book lays open flat. :-)
