New little handmade sketch journals




I really enjoyed making these little handmade journals to add to my sketch journal travel pack. I had so much fun making them. I love to sew books and this is a type of a 4 needle coptic stitch that I did. I would show you the simple stitch but I think where I learned it from is copyright protected. But there are many ways to sew a book in a coptic stitch where you journal will lay flat.

I used paper that I had in my stash that I sprayed with my many stencils and Adirondack spray inks. I even did some lettering on them. It was fun!

Happy New Year!!

Howdy Martha,

Your little journals on 12/26/14 and DLP book are inspiring!

You've inspired me to practice my calligraphy more consistently. I even took over a closet in my house and turned it into my 'Scriptorium'!!!

Happy New Year!

Peace,
Mary Lou
