Falcon Travelers

Dutch Design Leather, Est 2013

Well maybe not so winding, but long it is, the road I painted on a custom requested Traveler’s Notebook.

Before I went on holiday I got a request for a custom traveler’s Notebook with a picture of a gorgeous view of the milky-way in the sky and a road leading toward a soft sunset in the far distance. The view of the milky way was so beautiful, I wished we could see the stars here like this, but I’m afraid there’s a bit too much light pollution going on in our crowded little country.

The Traveler’s Notebook is well underway to its new home so here are a few pictures of it.


It started out looking like this.


and I had every intention of making photo’s while I was painting it…but failed horribly.

That’s the trouble with getting all caught up into the painting…


I also made several other TN’s, but I’ll keep those for later. In the mean time there is a little treat for those that like to make their own inserts.

I made a cute dot-grid insert with some doodled arrows I had in my media stash. 


I have no clue where they came from, but they were in my free to use folder.


Therefore it’s available from my free templates folder, which you can find via this page.


And since I needed a new journaling booklet, I printed one for myself and made a booklet.


I love how I can now print my own decorated papers and make my booklet covers with them. With the A3 printer, I even had paper left over to make a cover for my next personal size diary and make one of my bookmarks with leather tabs, to match the cover. Next I will use it to make folders…the sky is the limit as they say, so here are a few more images of the lovely milky way TN.


I really like how he turned out.


I’m off now to go and work on my special project with angels (ssst don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret) and I hope I will be able to show you that next time….

I hope you enjoyed this and I wish you a lovely weekend.
