The Notebook Project | Hand illustrated + GIVEAWAY

Handmade : hand illustrated notebook

Lately, I've had this obsession,
with where it is I come from.
Where it is things come from.

The brushes in my hand,
the paint in these tubes,
the paper that lies beneath tips of pencils.
The notebooks I love oh so much!! 

So today, I've folded a small pile of paper in half.
Backed it all with a heavier card,
and stitched a line down the middle.

  3. These are really beautiful. What a lovely thing to do ❀ I don't think you know what will fill a notebook until you begin – drawing, writing… scribbling. πŸ™‚

  4. LOVE your notebooks! I’m a big sucker for stationary (just watch my face when I go into a stationary store). I’d fill your note book with jewelry design sketches πŸ™‚

  7. You have such an elegant and recognisable line. I’d love to win these.

  8. These really are lovely. You have a precious talent. I really enjoy your artwork. I would probably have to give them as a present to someone I love. Unless I filled them with pawprints.

  9. At first I think I would be scared to fill it with anything. I hate to fill it with stuff I find useless in the end. So I guess I can’t tell you how I would fill it, but when I do I will be sure to tell you and show you… πŸ˜‰
    They look really great (did I mention that?)!

    These are really elegant-looking and beautiful! I was thinking at first if I got them I’d do sketches, but it’d be a shame if I had to rip out a page or something. So maybe instead I’d press some flowers and leaves and pretty petals, and stick them into each book. Maybe even research the Latin names and do something Chris Drury style, like his mushroom artwork. Although I probably won’t get around to posting pictures, so I’d choose a different comment because they’ll be more interactive and arty than myself.
