The pages inside each of these pocket junk journals combine illustrations from vintage flower, gardening and nature books with vintage patterned and non-patterned papers (ledger pages, office stationery and more) and . I’ve also included original ecoprints on sheet music. Every journal is unique and the pages can be used for writing, sketching, doodling, collage and more. (If you've ever found it difficult to start creating on a blank page, try using one with words or patterns on it instead.)
At the back of each journal, I've bound a envelope made from an original ecoprint to hold photos and ephemera. I would be happy to emboss your name or monogram on the lower right-hand corner of the front cover free of charge.
Ecoprinting is the process of making direct contact prints with the natural pigments found in leaves and flowers using pressure and heat. The colours and patterns imprinted on the paper depend on the variety and combination of leaves and flowers as well as the time of year.

📮Shipping to Canadian addresses by Canada Post Regular Mail, which does not provide tracking.
1-2 business days
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.
