Author(s): Virginia Johnson
The vibrant watercolour brushstrokes that have made Toronto-based painter Virginia Johnson's textiles so popular among women are now showcased across this three-title line: including a Notecard Set, Labels Stickers, and Notebook Collection. Featuring Virginia's watercolour studies of garden vignettes, each of these three centre-stitched notebooks features watercolour-painted and foil-stamped covers and lined interiors printed on uncoated stock -- all tied together with a bow of baker's twine.
