Rustic Leather Watercolor Journal
Welcome to book 13 of The 50 Book Project. This week I created a rustic leather watercolor journal from a piece of tangerine leather.
The binding is a modified pamphlet stitch. The four signatures each have their own sewing holes, but there are only 3 sewing stations or holes in the leather cover.
The 32 pages are torn from a large sheet of Arches hotpress 140lb watercolor paper and sewn with waxed linen thread.
The closure is a piece of vintage twine from a spool I picked up at a flea market last summer.
I recorded a video of the whole process, but bear with me while I figure out how to use Adobe Premiere Elements to edit it. It’s going to be a steep learning curve!
