Summer Journaling

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‘!
