Finished making another longstitch book in the on-line class I am taking from Diana Trout......actually, the class is called Longstitch, 2 ways. The "two ways" refers to the two techniques used to finish the spine, exposed spine and hidden spine.
This one is the hidden spine.....I like it!
The fun, little stitches that give it it's name, Longstitch! This is called hidden spine because the pages of the book do not show, only the spine of the book.
For the pages on the inside, I used a combination of watercolor paper and brown kraft wrapping paper. Should make the book fun and interesting for sketching and/or journaling.
I used hand painted paper for the end pages of the book, or the inside cover pages.
So...when you open the book this is what you see.
This has been a fun class. I hope to get a few more journal/books together for Christmas gifts.
Hope you are enjoying your Veteran's Day and a long weekend.
