New Celtic Journals

Here are two new Celtic art journals I made.

This one is a small and cute sewn-over-tapes journal with tan Rives BFK paper.

The covers are book board painted with copper artist acrylic paint. The textured Celtic motif is a green patina-like color that is lovely to touch.

The other, a medium-sized art journal with lovely 140 lb. hot-press Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.

It has a cool open Celtic conco that you tie around to close with a small rectangular Celtic charm on the end of the tan leather cord.

I created this stencil with an enlarged Celtic spiral within a hand shape. It is the first of my hand-painted pages with pockets. This one has 4 pages and 4 pockets scattered in the 60 pages, back and front.

Leaf painted pages and pockets, as the Celts love nature!

Triple spiral motif from a stamp I made of the famous Newgrange structure.

They are both now listed in my Etsy shop.
