Oriental Moleskine Cahier

Newer Older

This was done on a large Moleskine Cahier blank journal as a product demo for AMP. The Cahier is bound in black paper this time and has a pocket in the back. As soon as I saw the black cover I felt the only way to really show it off would be accents and Oriental seemed the most appropriate. :)

I created this collage using handmade papers and collage elements fromAutumn Moon Paper. I've made notes as to which paper is which.

The postage stamp is a real stamp (from Japan and my most favorite) from a collection my father gifted me when I was 11 years old. I had three of them in the album and thought at least one should be seen. :)

Thank you daddy, I remember.
