A beautiful summer journal.
What a wonderful project to engage in over the course of the season. It is so simple, calming and in tune with nature. Collecting from nature is a great learning tool for children, of course. Though, couldn't we all benefit from a little meditative practice such as this? To explore our world and document it, becomes beauty in itself.
Here, Finnish artist and creator, Maija Ukko, from Ukkonooa, has made a journal for her daughter in such a do-able, yet beautiful way. I am so glad to be able to share her inspiration. I love how she bound the book, using a simple stitch through paper. And the subtle use of paint over printed paper, creates such a great back drop for the nature collection. It's just so pretty! Thank you Maija, for sharing this beautiful 'Book of Summer'!
