Willowing talks about setting up here etsy shop and does an art journal page.
Willowing doing an art journal page. Very nice.
This is perhaps my favorite of all the NotaMax videos, all you can hear in it is the crisp sound of pages turning.
Another NotaMax creation for Inspiration Saturdays.
I found this via one of my subscribers (NotaMax) on YouTube. Love it love it love it. Scraps of everyday life gathered together and bound into a sweet little book. SHort but totally sweet.
I just listed a bunch of recycled sign vinyl journals to etsy, 7 total; 4 with snow white covers waiting to be decorated and 3 with harvest orange covers. I also listed 2 more sets of matchbook notebooks. You can see them here.
Take a look at this book. It measures 9×12 inches and has 192 pages. The paper is 60lb drawing paper and will handle just about any media. The cover is stiff smooth black cowhide. Features a flap and strap closure. The binding is a longstitch with linking and a keyhole cut into the spine. I have a lot more pics on my flickr page. This one is sold (custom order) but I’m working on another in golden yellow deer hide.
So this little beauty is a miniature moleskine. It’s stitched with hand waxed cotton thread. The spine was clamped and glued by hand with acid free flexible glue. The cover is a vinyl plastic coating just like a real moleskine. Inside are 32 pages of cream colored heavy paper. The bookmark is naturally colored hemp and in the back is a pocket. Holding the whole thing shut is an elastic.
Phew it’s been a busy week here at Comfortable Shoes Studio. I’ve been crazily busy with the DayJob as well as in the studio. Yup, fresh new books. I’ve got a stack of graph paper jotters, a group of cardstock hedgehogs, a couple of kraft paper hedgehogs and a 100% cotton hedgehog all headed for etsy.
I’ll post links to etsy when I get them loaded up. I’m pretty excited to get some leather books back up to etsy, it’s been awhile and the recycled notebooks seemed to be taking over my shop. While I was in the studio I cut several large notebook sized covers from this chunk of sleek black cowhide I’ve got, they will be fantastic with either white or red stitching…. Keep an eye out for those too. I’m going to work on designing the spines today.
Here are some pics to occupy you until then:
Yes, that is graph paper
