Book of Ships

Last Christmas I made a little book/journal for my boyfriend. I had never done anything like it before. I loved it!
I never thought of journaling before, because I don't find writing down my emotions satisfying enough. It doesn't work for me. I found that making little "books" though, works.
So I started a little project. I called it the "Book of Ships". It was made to deal with my overwhelming longing for things I do not have right now.
I like working with themes/ideas/concepts. I don't know why. Anybody else is like that?

Anyway, here it is:

In progress...I always work on my bed :)


So. I do not know how to bind thing together (yet), so I decided to make an envelope to hold the pages of my book...














So there. I hope you liked it!

  6. Thank you so much the sweet comment. I have missed the blogging world so much! I have just been reading all your lovely posts I missed over these past few weeks.

    This book is quite darling and the art is beautiful.

    Oh and on a side note . . .

    I must admit that I am quite obsessed with antique keys now and would like to thank you and your blog for such inspiration.

    Hope you are well!

  14. Wow! These pictures are gorgeous. I've always loved those kind of ship pictures, I used to want a tattoo of an ancient greek ship from Homer's stories. Actually, I sort of still do.
