I just finished a matching leather journals for some friends. On these I tried out pyrography on the leather… and I really like the results! This opens up a whole different way of personalizing the journals!
I also tried using some different paper made from sugarcane. It’s about as thick as regular copy paper, but has more of a silky feel to it. Each journal has 384 pages, front and back and is 3.5″ x 5″.
