Some new gocco printed Moleskine journals

It occurred to me that I haven’t put any pictures of my Etsy shop listings on the blog for ages, so here we go!

gocco printed Moleskine journals 

This medieval city journal has been selling well recently.  It is based on a Dover publication of some medieval woodcuts.  I printed it, embossed it with gold embossing powder and then painted it with watercolour paints to bring it to life.  They are all different.

Here is another variation:

Here is one that has just been printed with brown ink.  I have them in unlined or lined notebooks.

This is a new one too.  It has been printed twice.  First with the yellow spiral design, then with a new design of a street in France.


Here is another variation on the French street, again embossed and painted with watercolours.  It is a lot more abstract than the medieval city.  I do like the way that printing with the Gocco is so adaptable!

Here is another new design.  It shows a boat in the harbour in Bristol with houses behind.  It has been printed on a beige moleskine cahier and then I’ve added a blue watercolour wash over the top.

And lastly here is Honfleur Harbour in Normandy this time with a blue watercolour wash over it.

    THe journals are quite beautiful – I particularly like how you were able to make each one slightly different with either paint or ink….quite nice!

      Thanks, Linda! It also makes it more interesting, personalizing each one….
