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.
