Since I made the giant tome I’ve wanted to create a journal made of real leather; but because that’s quite expensive I figured I’d upcycle a couple of leather boots and turn them into a traveler’s adventure notebook! By using secondhand materials and clothing you can get this really cool worn and patched-together type of look, and that was what I was going for. The torn sketchbook / drawing paper really brings it together. Such a fun DIY project!
