Monster Book Number 5, Journal Notebook with 6 Ring Binder, over 200 Blank Pages
I made this handcrafted journal from scratch, this is the 5th monster book I made and everyone is different and more complex. For this one, I added 6 ring binder rings so pages can be easily removed or added. This binder-type notebook takes standard A-5, 6-hole pages. It comes with over 200 copper-edged blank pages but refill pages can be added such as weekly/monthly calendar, planner, graph paper, or a variety of standard A-5 refills (5.8" x 8.2") 6-hole binder pages and can be purchased at office supply stores or online.
This is a large book about 8.5 " wide (from the end of teeth to spine) x 9" long and 3" thick and weighs about 2.14 pounds.
This was made using fake fur and needle felting. For the eyes, I hand-painted glass and then sculpted the face around it with air-dry clay. When I was done with the eyes and face I painted and used copper wire to secure it to the cover. I soldered dragons onto the connecting clasps and added a small lock with keys for the safe keeping of one's thoughts, drawings, or diary entries.
To keep it from being unruly you must stroke the spine.
Thank you for supporting my art and have a wonderful day,
