Love this day, I call it French Fry Friday! Wonder why ? I get a surprise for dinner. Hubby brings ...whatever!
No cooking more time in the studio!
Speaking of studio, Have started the Living Book from Hocus Pocus. This is a past paper leather for books.
to start again. This way you can track the progress from a paper bag, Kraft paper and make your own living book, I have several people who are beginning this book with me, so ready...steady...go... First decide what size your book will be. I wanted an 8.5 x 11 as the inside of this book has sheets that size, I will give the URL later when we are ready for the pages.
This is a finished cover, I took paints and covered the entire Use any colors that take a fancy. I waited till it was almost dry and crinkled it .
This is the finished paper bag,
|To stabilize the paper I selected some Davy boards, any stiff card board will also due.|
Select an inside decorative paper to cover the outside paper,
|Decorative paper...looks just like the paper bag I just did..|
I will stop for now, as I wanted to collect some clay and work it to a pliable stage. As I will be making the embellishments for the cover, I still am thinking of the stitches, what to use, a heavy linen waxed thread or ????.
Have a happy Friday and a beautiful week end.
May you walk in the moonlight till the wind sets you free.
