I really love these boxed bundles of journal jumpstart stuff inspiration.
It starts with a handbound journal. It measures 6″ x 6″ (16cm x 16cm), with 30 tea-dyed pages (for 60 sides). The cover is an eco-print made from Autumn leaves foraged in a Welsh forest. The wraparound cover ties with fawn sari silk and the binding is covered with tea-dyed gauze and a foxed paper from a 19th century frontispiece (see photo 6). It is truly one-of-a-kind.

Then there are the journal-keeping accessories:
- UHU glue stick
- 60 ml handmade walnut ink
- Two bamboo dip pens in various sizes
- Spritzer/mister bottle (to be filled with ink and water or acrylic paint and water to embellish pages)
- Paper bundle pack (vintage French print, handmade marbled paper, mulberry paper, Nepalese lokta, vintage blueprints on acetate, a variety of tissue papers, two oversize tags). Papers are all different but approximately 6″ x 6″ (16cm x 16cm) and can be used in your blank book or in other mixed-media work.
This bundle makes a unique starter kit for the new diary keeper or a charming addition to the longtime journal addict’s stash.
