These sweet notebooks have gold covers and botanical screenprints--one with a raspberry flower and the second with a croton leaf--that I drew last winter when I was dreaming of spring. The leaf image I drew this image from a fallen leaf from my mother's garden. Crotons sometimes have really flashy colors, but what I like about them is that on their underside they have beautiful rippling veins. The notebooks are upcycled blank journals from a second hand art supply store. They were in perfect condition but had an ugly corporate logo on the cover that had to go. So I spraypainted their covers gold and then screenprinted my leaf drawing on top. There are thirty two pages inside and the pages have a grid of dots instead of lines, which is my favorite kind of notebooks to write in. On some notebooks you can see a bit of the spraypaint on the inside of their covers, but that's part of their charm. Each one is slightly different from the rest.
