Poppy Watercolor Sketchbook handmade gift for an Artist or Gardener

Poppy watercolor sketchbook artist journal handmade by Ruth Bleakley

Art journaling is a fun alternative to traditional journaling with writing – if you’re an artist looking to keep your drawing or painting skills sharp, or simply experience the world more visually, keeping your memories in an artist journal by drawing or painting your daily experiences is a fun way to remember things. I made this sturdy little 72 page blank book from Canson watercolor paper that will hold up well to both drawing and painting. The covers are book board with antique illustrations of poppies, added using a special print transfer technique. The binding is sewn with super strong red waxed Irish linen thread. I also added an elastic strap to the book to keep it closed in your bag. Click on any of the photos to see it in my etsy shop, or click here: Poppy Watercolor Sketch Journal
