Good Morning

INSPIRATION......
Do you have your new issue of Cloth Paper Scissors?
It is full of great articles. You'll want to check it out.
Here is the deal I have with myself. When I purchase a magazine, I fully expect to be inspired.
And I go with the inspiration where ever it takes me.
This article by Jean Littlejohn did just that.

Here is the project for my holiday. It is top on my to do art list. I actually started this "at the desk".....shhhh
I hope to make a sketchbook as shown above in the CPS article. I may even try my hand at the beautiful roses. For sure my book already has a floral theme.
I'm using the guts or part of the guts of an old book. It was there waiting. So the first thing I did was glue 5 or 6 pages together. I did not remove any pages. I ended up with 14 spreads. I think that is a good size.

The book was not in real good shape. As you can see I have reinforced the spine.


I have a plan for the cover but I want go into much now as I plan on coming back with progress through out this weekend. Maybe even later today. I'm in a blogging mood.


What are you doing? I hope it is a long weekend for you too.
More later,
Sharon

  1. Hi Sharon, that was the project that attracted me too! You are off to a good start - I LOVE the way the cheesecloth on the binding looks - that gives me an idea for something ... oh, I just love the way we inspire each other! (off to the studio to play)
