Parchment, Paper and Basket Weaving

Today's artist is Leisha over at CornerstoneLAE on Etsy. When I first discovered her shop, it was through the Etsy Voter where she had a beautiful card on display with a pop-out butterfly. It's delicacy really caught my eye and when I clicked through I found myself even more intrigued.

This shop is filled with earthy, fun and
fanciful delights that I find outrageously tempting. Cards, journals, bowls and more.

I was especially taken with the hand-bound journal pictured in this post.

It has wooden covers that have been burned with cogs on the front and finished with several coats of satin polyurethane to protect the original design image. 128 pages of high quality parchment. Coptic bound with waxed cord so that the book will lie flat when open. Yes yes, I'm in love, can't you tell? I'm a journal lover at heart and I just can't help it. I think it comes from my love of books but who can say?

I'm also really impressed with her basket weave bowls, she even has a few with feather trim for some serious fun! Leisha also loves to do custom work, so be sure to check her out!

I just love the natural look of this.

The pop-up nursery card is so clever, especially with the customizable frame! That kind of card would really stand out among the piles that people get for new babies, it would be really cute kept in a shadowbox and displayed in the actual nursery.

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear.

You may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
