(2 customer reviews)

 Original Hand-Painted Watercolor Blank Journal – SOLD

  • Size: 9 H x 4 (3 sided) W
  • includes 1 signature – (6) 8.25 in x 7 in double sided sheets folded in half

Embellished with:

  • french knots with cotton fiber thread for flowers
  • machine stitched tree trunks and branches
  • torn canvas fabric glued and machine stitched along edges
  • braided sari silk tie

It was a recreation of a class I took to learn how to add the lighting effect in this magical fairy-like forest.  After putting this together, I had decided to make it into a trifold and fell in love with this look and feel.  I showed it to a friend and she bought it like instantly!

It is painted on 300 gsm/140 LB Acid Free cold press 25% cotton watercolor paper.  After it was painted I sealed it with Fine Art Fixatif, then did all the stitching.  Once completely finished, I sealed it again with 2 coats of Krylon Crystal Clear sealer.  I then added a layer of canvas fabric on the back and stitched up the edges with my sewing machine.  I used the scrap pieces of canvas fibers and stitched those up on my sewing machine to make the strap.  I then stitched in the signatures which are replaceable if you choose.

I plan to make quick and easy video to show you how to swap out the signatures.

NOTE – Although its been sealed well, I would not consider this waterproof by any means. I consider it a piece of art, so be gentle but dont be afraid to use it!

Description

I was not able to photograph this journal in detail as I sold it before I could.  I did take a scan of the original painting before I embellished it, so this is what you get to see…its still quite yummy I will admit!!!

heart love
