A Kiss Journal in soft pinks and blues with a delicate touch of primrose yellow, lilac and copper. All ready for you to record your hopes and dreams - or give to a very special person.

A Kiss Journal is a handmade journal - where the stitching forms Xs on the spine, which form the kisses.

I've totally made this by hand: cutting the papers, painting the cover, stitching it all together... I particularly like this format as it lends itself very well to dimensional pages: collage, textured paint effects, ephemera. Hand sew, machine stitch, glue - this journal will take it all!

I've used ultra heavyweight watercolour paper with my own take on a paste paper finish, using acrylics, gesso, gilt creams and Glimmer Mist sprays. I've added dimension by stamping into the wet surface with a swirl pattern.

The cover ties with hand-plaited silk Sari ribbons, and the inside cover and facing page are sprayed with toning colours and just a touch of copper for extra pizazz.

The journal is stitched with waxed Linen thread, and the pages are sewn in three sections (or signatures).

The paper is a lovely soft white, ultra smooth heavyweight all-media paper (160gsm) by SeaWhites of Brighton. This has extra wet strength, is acid-free and cholrine-free, and will take any amount of collage, paint ,journaling, gesso etc. This surface is fabulous to work on.

Each signature has 12 pages (24 sides) which gives a total of 36 pages (72 sides) for you to work on!

5.25 inches x 6.5 inches (13cm x 17cm)
Spine depth is 0.75in (1.8cm)

This journal is unique - every painted cover is totally different, so you'll have something totally exclusive to you!

You'll find this journal a total pleasure to use, and I hope it will bring you joy and inspiration.
