Using Nick Neddo’s new book “The Organic Artist” I was able to craft a few journals from bark.

Below are pictures of harvesting the bark by cutting and slowly loosening it off the trunk of the tree. I won’t give a tutorial on the binding as I just learned the skill from his book. You could always tie a simple binding but the book explains how to bind in a way that allows the pages to spread open with artistry and finesse.  I recommend purchasing a copy of Nick’s book as it has lots of great nature art skills and simple and clear tutorials.
