It is SCORCHING hot here in Athens… and the only way to survive is with the aircon on!
Saturday was spent with friends, and the result was this beautiful book!
Yes, I made it! wow!! It is my first attempt at bookbinding, but totally satisfying when a pile of papers take shape into a book that can be used for art journalling, doodling and whatever else the moment calls for.
I bound the book using 190gms bristol paper, which might be too thin for serious art journalling, I am thinking I might have to use the pages two at a time (this is all I had on hand, so went ahead and used it). I also had some heavier textured stock on hand, in a cream but that was a little smaller than the 25X17.5cm format of my other pages. These pages, I bound in the centre of each signature, and thought this would add a little interest to the journalling later on. I used my papers for the covers, and am very very pleased with the result! This is definitely a project I will be repeating!
Let me know what you think!
Thanx for stopping by!
