Last month I was in Spain for almost 3 weeks and I brought a few gifts for my hostesses. Now that the gifts have been given, I am looking forward to sharing them here. Over the past 2 years I have been teaching variations on hand bound bookbinding classes, and so I decided to make each hostess her own journal.
This book was made using vintage wallpaper, vintage book pages and a bingo card. Along with the papers, I also had some fun playing with paints and my charcoal pencil to add depth to the cover. The spine was created with my favorite bookbinding tape which is super easy to use and very strong. The interior of the book was stocked with watercolor paper so is a perfect jumping off point for whatever the receiver wants to do with their book!
Today I am writing to you from Lyon, France where I am getting ready to teach at Version-Scrap, a French scrapbooking convention, this weekend. I am looking forward to connecting with a few friends and making some new ones as well. I hope that wherever you are, you have a wonderful, safe day.
