HANDMADE BLANK ART SKETCHBOOK JOURNALS

HANDMADE BLANK ART JOURNALS
The cover papers of these handmade blank books are beautiful handmade papers. The 14 double-sided (28 pages to paint or draw on) interior pages are 90 lb. Stonehenge paper, which is a traditional fine art paper with a smooth, flawless surface that is slightly mottled to resemble actual vellum. Use it for watercolor, printmaking, pen-and-ink, pencil, or pastel.  These books are made using a Coptic stitch in a traditional book-binding method.  The books have a wonderful “hefty” feel to them, the page paper is thick.  The cover can inspire art for the interior of the book:  Blue fish could be a sketchbook of 28 sketches/paintings of fish, the Aqua marbled book could have sketches of ocean landscapes or planets, the colorful paper umbrella book could have sketches of your own hand-painted umbrellas or fans OR your blank books could hold your poetry and dreams.  It’s up to you!
