Painted Traveler's Notebooks...

May 23, 2015

Á while back I discovered you can paint Leather Travelers Notebooks with acrylic paint, my all time favorite medium. Regular Acrylic paint will work, however special acrylics for leather are better and give a much nicer result.

Since then I have made quite a few Traveler's notebooks that were painted, among which are my painted lady and some nebula's. I tend to show some of the TN's I make in my facebook group, Lady Falcon Traveler's Notebooks and on my instagram, @LadyFalconTN, but somehow seem to forget to post them here...

So without further ado, here's my latest Weir Tree TN. It's an A6 Traveler's Notebook and it has one, larger/older , brother, or sister, in the world =)

These are hand painted and since the leather doesn't take kindly to pencil, I can't sketch it out before hand.

As you can see in the next picture, it's a rough sketch with paint, after which the rest gets painted, slowly building layer after layer.

 I love working like this,

Feeling my way to the final stage.

Trying to capture the light and how it bounces off the tree.

The stars in the sky are an extra challenge =) and usually leave me all starry looking as well.

Here it is next to my own A6 Traveler's Notebook.

And the insert I made to go with it.

I always leave the inside with just the leather dye/stain, because this way I can brush the inside to make it nice and soft and suede like.

Positively pettable =)

The last few pics are from the previous Weir Tree, which is an XL Regular Size, a bit larger.
I would love to see both next to each other someday =)

I hope you enjoyed watching this and I wish you a wonderful weekend.
