Hand Illustrated Kraft Art Journals

Blue Whale Notebook

I am a bit of a notebook addict. When I found these A5 Kraft Journals, I was inspired to illustrate a few by hand. I used stabilo ink pens, liquid acrylic inks and white ink, just using one tone of colour with the white for each notebook.

I think the hot pink is my personal favourite contrast with the brown.

Rainy Day Journal, With two shades of blue ink pen and white liquid ink.

I think the one-colour plus white on brown card effect worked well, the real knack seemed to be making sure it’s a vibrant colour to contrast the brown.

  1. I have the same pens! I saw them and couldn’t get them out of my head, so went ahead and bought them haha. This reminds me that I have to finish my book binding project so that I can start decorating the covers. I covered all the recycled card with brown wrapping paper, so they look quite similar to your Kraft journals. Good to know that the pens work so well on them!

    • Don’t forget to post the outcomes! I know, pens are another vice of mine, perhaps worse than notebooks. I also love the faber castell brush pens- they come in regular and jumbo sizes- grogeous to work with too.
