Dream Keeper by luthien27 Dream Keeper by luthien27
This journal is a custom commission.

Dream Keeper is inspired by the client’s love for skulls, hearts, the old, the rusted and the darker side of dreams.

This is a mixed media handbound journal. The artwork on the front cover combines paint, ink, stamps, clay, brass augmented by fire, rusty objects and a brass skull embedded in glass. The page marker is made up of a brass chain and ends with an old rusty key and a piece of old mother-of-pearl. The artwork is then aged and distressed. The covers are finished with several coats of varnish to protect the artwork.

Upon the client’s request, the pages in this journal are Artist Quality 160gsm white paper, capable of taking ink, pencil and paint. This piece was commissioned for Art Journaling.

This is extremely cool! I like how there are a bunch of shots, not just one, so that you can see a lot of different pieces of the journal. The heart in the center is certainly dark and rusted looking, and I like how it has the subtle lace edging along the outside rim, as though it has long turned dark and is slowly spreading the darkness to other things. It's nice and thick, and looks extremely well-made. Excellent work and congratulations on the Daily Deviation.
