My one-of-a-kind handmade botanical junk journals combine illustrations I’ve carefully chosen from vintage garden books and nature field guides with vintage blank paper. Each contains 80 pages (160 sides): 34 illustrated pages from vintage books, 6 original ecoprints on watercolour paper and 40 pages of blank vintage paper including lined, ledger and grid paper.
Each journal includes a handmade Kraft envelope with a string closure for you to collect notes, photos and ephemera.I’ve attached a library card pocket to the inside back cover to hold more of your treasures. The covers are sturdy chipboard: a stylized leaf die cut from an original ecoprint embellishes the front cover and the back cover is blank.
Junk journals are perfect for writing down your thoughts, ideas and dreams. They’re also wonderful to use as sketch books and art journals.
Ecoprinting is the process of making direct contact prints with the natural pigments in leaves and flowers using pressure and heat. Every print is unique.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
If you would like to order a customized book, please contact me.
To make the pages for my books, I fold one long sheet of paper in half so that it turns into 4 pages when you count both sides of the page. So a book with 176 pages of writing or drawing paper contains 44 sheets of paper folded in half. And a sketchbook with 88 pages of watercolour paper contains 22 sheets of paper folded in half.
I use Canada Post and will ship your order promptly – often on the same day I receive it – but I can't guarantee how quickly it will reach you, even if you have select ed expedited shipping. You are responsible for providing me with the correct name and address for shipping, and I cannot be held responsible for incorrect information.
