Painted leather Traveler’s Notebook covers, on the outside….

Or…why I don’t paint the inside of my covers with the same acrylics based leather dyes I use on the smooth outside.

I’ve gotten a few questions from people asking me if I could paint the inside of the leather Traveler’s Notebook covers. The answer to that would have to be yes, of course I can paint the inside of the covers, however I choose not to do it. For a reason, a very good reason in my mind. =)

I do dye the insides of the covers with alcohol or oil based leather dyes. So there’s plenty of color to be had …

for instance, the above Nebula Traveler’s Notebook, has a purple inside =)

To explain why I choose not to paint the inside, I would first have to explain something about the vegetable tanned leather I use.

Painted Traveler’s Notebooks…

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.

Very short Blogpost…

I’m going to try something new today….I’m going to write a short blogpost… That’s right, very short…
However, It is a rather long video =)

It’s a flip through of my Traveler’s Notebook (s), both my personal planner and the TN I took with me on holiday to Italy with the Travelogue and the doodling booklets.
I hope you enjoy

Have a lovely weekend,
xx Monique

A little trip and a travelogue to log it

Last week I went on a little trip to Italy with my family. We had lots of fun and mad loads of pictures. Over the years I noticed somehow those pictures are taken only to be never looked at again, or if you do look at them, you can’t remember what was going on, or even where it was.

So the past few years I’ve taken to making a travelogue from all my trips. Sometimes quite elaborate, but usually just a brief journaling page per day with what we did and a few pics to go with it. Sometimes I draw, sometimes I don’t. I just go with the flow.

This year I made a new template for my travelogue and made it available in my Facebook group, Lady Falcon Traveler’s Notebooks

It started out looking like this

and ended up looking like this =)

Not as chunky as some I did before, but lovely and messy, just the way I like it.
