Spring 2011 Swap: LadyArtisan

Portable, personalized, refillable. This notepad has leather covers stitched together with linen thread, hand-dyed and carved with Hilke’s initial in a font I designed. The paper is scrap paper, leftover tea-stained drawing paper from another project, and is attached to the back cover with brads so it’s easy to refill. The stones are some leopard jasper beads I had in my stash, just waiting for a project like this. And, yes, it really did fit in an envelope although it was a larger envelope (and padded since it was being shipped overseas). --Eva Buchala, Lady Artisan.

Love the contrast of the hard beads with the soft leather. Very cool!

I'm drooling over the rich green colour of the leather! Beautiful!

I love this little book. Love the green leather and the quality of the color, its depth and vibrance, and just about anything about the notepad. It has already been put to good use. Thank you Eva!
