I've had this notebook sitting around for a while but I didn't quite know what to do with it.

Duh, Alex. Write!

I know, but it just wasn't inspiring enough.

I love stationary. Sometimes I just walk into Indigo and stare at all of the cleverly designed pieces of art that are notebook covers. As someone who enjoys "wordsmithing" and can appreciate a well-used quotation, my writing process is heavily influenced by what I'm writing in or on. Each cover projects a theme and shapes what the content of the journal is about.

Alex, you're crazy.

I know, but we all are (just a little bit).

And so if you are too, and are willing to put a little (or a lottle, depending on what design you choose) effort into pimpin' yo' notebook, then, by all means, read on.

Tools

  • Watercolor paint + Metallic acryclic paint
  • Brushes
  • Notebook with a blank cover (I used a Moleskine notebook)

    Options:

    1. You can essentially pick any pattern after Googling or Pinteresting a few patterns (typing in Watercolour Patterns into the search bar should give you a few interesting options), and then use your paint to copy it.
    2. Feel free to copy the ones above! 

      - Enjoy!
