Rachelle has spent over a decade perfecting her plant-stained art and mastering the process. This unique paper collection of her colorful and textured eco-printed designs is created through plant staining achieved by boiling. She has discovered the nuances that can influence the end result, such as the species of plant, the region it was harvested from, and during which season it was harvested.
These journals are for writing.
They're for writing your deepest thoughts, your secrets, your meditative responses to things.
They’re for writing your intuition.They’re for recording life events.
They’re for writing down blessings and gratitude and keeping notes of things that you want to always remember and for just replying to those questions that nag at you in your head from day to day, and it's for you to work out things.
It's just like any other journal, any other diary, except for the fact that it comes with its own inclusive inspiration.
It comes with its magical powers…the essence of nature, that inspire you to write, to release to earth; to do all those things.
Can I write in Plant-Stained Paper Journals?
Yes! You can write, draw, and paint on the pages that are plant-stained and the pages that are hand-dyed. Pencils, pens, watercolors, gouache, acrylics, inks, etc, all work well!
Do the plant stains fade?
The stains are created through a boiling method using a mordant to preserve the colors on acid-free archival ragcloth paper. They are heirloom quality, may age naturally, and will last indefinitely, However, if exposed to the sun for an extended period of time, the stains will fade.
Do you use plants from your own yard?
Sometimes, but mostly I use plant elements that have served their purpose beautifying a space and heading toward their demise. My resources include the nurseries and greenhouses at Walt Disney World, nurseries serving local city and commercial landscapes, local florists, and local churches.

For several years I have been enjoying Rachelle’s special art! Her reuse of flowers and plants in her work gives it a fresh natural aspect and is also eco-friendly. From the varied stains in the pages, to the imaginative front covers, to the colorful threads used to bind the spines, you can easily see she puts her heart into her work. Meeting Rachelle and obtaining some of her art has brought me much happiness and tranquility.

If you desire the freshness of nature, but require that beauty to have longer life span than that of a fresh flower - Rachelle Eason journals are the perfect blend. The most amazing flowers are magically transformed on to paper so that they can remain in your life or on your walls or desk. They transform paper into soothing piece of art that will pull you in.

The first time I saw a Rachelle Eason plant-stained journal I was moved in a way that I can't explain. Their beauty touched me like no other art has. Since my first encounter with them I have purchased at least a dozen, and plan on purchasing many more. Every time I can't decide what to give someone as a gift and I want to make it extra special, I give a Rachelle Eason plant-stained journal. It's the perfect, hand-made gift of art. One of my friends burst into tears at the beauty of her journal.
