Field Journals @ Greencraft

Two of my all time favourite Character Constructions stamps, even before I eventually got my hands on them, Twig Chairs, they are such exquisite stamps, the details as you would expect from any Character Constructions stamps is exceptional.
Knowing I was using Green products, I decided to submit to Greencraft magazine, where they were subsequently published in the Summer 2018 issue.
I had this idea, to use birch tree bark as notebook covers and stamp directly onto the birch tree bark, something I’ve done often. I got the tree bark from a reliable and trusted source, I did not damage any tree so I could have some birch tree bark to play with!Other “Green” elements were a re-cycled coconut husk button and twine used to bind the books.
This is the rear of the second notebook…all stamps are Character Constructions.To present the notebooks, a re-cycled box.  It was dog-eared but instead of trying to fight the appearance by painting it, I distressed it further.  Re-cycled twine (from R&As packaging), re-cycled button and more stamping onto tree bark, was all that was needed to embellish the box.
Thank you so much for your visit today.

    Dear Lynn e, they are exquisite – and must be like holding nature in your hands,- lovely, lovely with the roisin papers inside the bark covers, and your nature twine and button. I simply love what you did to the box, to alter it more, and make it suitable for your note book- all together such beauty !!
    Dorthe, xxx

      Dorthe, thank you so much 🙂 I never thought of it but yes, I suppose I was trying to create that feeling of holding nature in your hands. xx
