Ever since I was young, I loved to keep diaries. I would write in it everyday, every little detail of my life. Sometimes, I write about my secret crush other times, I get inspired to write poetry or do a little drawing or insert a special keepsake. I used lined notebooks and sometimes those diaries with cute little locks. Nowadays, I still do enjoy writing...its so easy to write a thought or two online (in my blog) but other times I still love the traditional way of pen and paper.
This week's feature Friday is about journals. I found a wonderful Etsy artist that creates the prettiest journals. So, come and take a look at our guest artist this Friday :
The wonderful journals of Kreativlink are created by Renate Ikinger. She was born, raised and is currently living in Austria. She initially started working as a self employed web designer/programmer but dropped most of the virtual work to become a full time crafter!
Renate talks about her creative process in her etsy profile...
Renate takes special care making each of her journals by hand, ripping the papers herself and sewing them together too. Her journals are made of fabric and leather, carefully sewn together using her sewing machine (called Diva). She has different hand painted designs like the fairy tree above. But her prints have a wide range from cutesy...
and beautiful fabric prints...
