I have a lot fun recycling junk mail into handmade paper and into tiny journals. Sometimes I will grind up the junk mail into pulp to make my own handmade paper, and other times I will recycle the paper as it is into something else.
The cover is made of leather and is hand stitched by me as well!
This 40 page yellow leather journal is approximately 2-3/8 in. W x 3 in. H and it is filled with handmade paper from recycled junk mail. It is finished with a faux leather tie and a silver tone dragonfly charm.
This paper has been painted with a coat of absorbent ground to accept watercolors.
