They’re handmade books created from scraps. You can start from a cereal box or a real book and make your dream book come true.
What I especially love of this art is the feeling that paper conveys: it brings back memories of old times , childhood and merry moments. I always age my papers with coffee and ink or, better, I use vintage paper, old book pages or notebooks.
The style of the journals I make is eclectic vintage, sometimes romantic and a little shabby chic, sometimes I turn towards industrial and steampunk. The style follows the mood of the day, exactly like any art and craft.
I’ve started making books when I was looking for a cheaper way to create a sketchbook to work on my watercolors and then, a whole world opened up.
I’ve learned how to sew fabric on paper, how to create secret pockets to hide important messages, how to embellish the pages with beads and ornaments.
A new adventure has begun and I would like you to be the recipient of my creations.
