The lines are here! I've made a journal with 400 lovely lined pages. It's got a Jane Austen quote from Pride & Prejudice on the front page, and the rest of its pages are bright white with bearly-there faint blue lines to aid in your writing. It's always much easier to write with lines! I'm going to be making more of these...so stay tuned.
I've just listed it on my etsy store...it's the last of that lovely terra cotta antique goatskin that I've been saving.
It looks pink in some of the photos but it's not - it's a gorgeous antiqued terra cotta shade. In fact, I was tempted to keep this one myself, seeing it's the last piece of this leather that I have! So it's very special. Here's a close up look, where the colour is more accurately depicted:
And I just finished this one this afternoon, which I'll be listing tomorrow. The cover is a gorgeous antique deep cherry red cowhide - one of my favorite leathers so far. The first page of the journal has a portrait of William Shakespeare captioned with an excerpt of one of his most loved sonnets - Sonnet #116:
"Love is not love which alters
when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests
and is never shaken"
