Reflecting Winter and Spring


This small Moleskine journal is the third of my designs that I have hand screenprinted onto notebooks in the studio:




This original design, drawn by me, was inspired by the ferns and icicles of a small frozen waterfall in the Welsh village of Llanarmon DC:





In the spring of 2009 I was asked to participate in an outside exhibition in the village and therefore screenprinted my Reflecting Winter and Spring design onto aluminium:




It seemed quite natural to play around with the scale of my design and first I printed it onto cards and then onto the Moleskine. The journal is quite handy, easy to carry and is perfect for note taking and making lists in - it can be found in my etsy shop here
