Being at home at my parents means that I am organising my parent’s stuff – however, it has also given me the opportunity to dig around my own room for some notebooks, diaries and albums from my childhood. Did the study today, here are some of my finds:
Wooden Cat Notebook bought in France in 1998. With a cat design on the front. Inside are sheets of squared paper and a pencil. I loved the style of this notebook but never found a true purpose for it – probably why the majority of pages remain unused today.
I made the cover of this one for my AS Level Art project. It was a Paul Gauguin themed book (inside I did various copies of his paintings). The cover itself is done using batik, using stock scenic imagery from his paintings. It is also very textured with different stitches, sequins, and beads, as well as being cushioned.
This is one of my favourite notebooks of all time – purely because Little Women is my favourite easy reading /feel good novel. The note book is full of little quotations, which make it an enjoyable read in its own right.
Of course anyone who reads regularly will know I’m a big fan of paper journals/diaries. Here is what has been found so far…
Now I got to decide what to do with these finds given that they are just stashed on shelves.
