During my most recent foraging trip on Etsy, I came across peaseblossomstudio. While this California artist is a self taught block printer, she also makes greeting cards, prints, calligraphy, collage and does bookbinding. Plus she has a whole other profile on etsy, pbemporium, where she sells craft supplies, and more handmade specialties! Peaseblossomstudio demonstrates amazing range, and her creative output is quite an inspiration.
When I was scrolling through the featured items in her peaseblossomstudio etsy shop, I fell in love with this handmade yellow, flower-paper, journal she'd posted. The cream colored bookcloth combined with the handmade paper was so dreamy, that the effect left an impression on me. Take a peek at the mustard colored end papers she used; the bold hue really anchors the design nicely. She even purposely sewed the signatures looser so that the book can lay open flat - ideal for fellow crafters looking for a place to deposit their ideas.
