I just didn't feel like working in my journal today,
but I did feel like making something.
I love being able to take a few sheets of paper, some string and a needle,
and not long later having a book to hold in my hands.
In terms of art, it's practically instant gratification!
The covers are made from paste papers I did a when I was teaching a mixed media class. For those of you that don't know what paste papers are, it's basically finger painting for adults - a whole lot of fun! I collaged in paper torn from an old book and some joss papers. A couple of sites with recipes and instructions can be found here and here.
