Friday, Diana Trout released her on-line, longstitch bookbinding class! Most interesting. Like many things, I know just enough to be dangerous and bookbinding is no exception. So, I am looking forward to getting past the pamphlet stitch and on to something a little fancier.
So far, I have made the cloth/paper for the cover and cut a big piece of paper in to little pieces of paper and gathered them to make signatures. Now, I've got some holes to punch and some thread to use!
Earlier this week I came up with a journal page I like.......using gesso, watercolor, pen and pencil.
Journaling can be a great way to vent your frustration.....we took the dog to groomer on Monday and on Tuesday he went out and rolled in the smelliest, nastiest "stuff" he could find. Oh, yes, I was very happy! NOT. So, I wrote about it here.
I like the look of watercolor over gesso that was spayed with a bit of water and dabbed with a paper towel.
Then I started another page......a this point, I'm liking this background but I have no idea where it goes from here!
I hope things are improving for the folks on the east coast and that your week will see less frustration and more optimism........and an end to political advertising!
