Here it is my latest work: a custom A6 size diary, based on this one.
My client told me that her friend (the final recipient) was fond of nature, birds and bright colors.
COVER// We agreed to use the same style of colorful papers I already used for other diaries on my blog. By the way..I buy them here in Madrid, in the Tiger shop. (Someone asked me if it was possible to buy them online, but I don’t think so..). The front and the back cover have different patterns, as you can see. The spine is in fabric.
PAGES// Light cream plain pages (72g). Every signature contains 8 leaves. Alternatively, they’re wrapped in vegetal paper ( in that case, the leaves are 6)
ILLUSTRATIONS// I started to look for vintage educational charts images and pictures about birds. I found a lot of material to make my handwritten illustrations on vegetal paper: 6 in total. I used a 0.3mm ink pen.
POP-UP// Birds! What a beautiful subject for a pop-up. I used a 180º angle fold kind. The paper is always from the Tiger shop, just another pattern.
POCKET// I love to put pockets in diaries and agendas, it makes them more functional somewhat. There are 6 little 8x10cm colored papers (one side is white) in the pocket.
PHOTOALBUM// I recently started to insert photo/album-styled pages in the diaries I make. Maybe that’s because I spent last summer developing films in Italy?? Maybe, but I do it because I love to be given the chance of it! If you think about it, many times you don’t put a picture on a notebook unless you see the little white triangles..;). So there you go!
I hope you’ll enjoy it!
