Create your own unique and personal handmade 7 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ book/journal from cover to cover using your own painted abstracty acrylic creations for the cover and decorative end papers. Then you will assemble and bind the spine of the book with a French Link stitch over ribbons.
The first day we will create acrylic abstract art on paper to be used for the covers and decorative end papers on the signatures of your book, then, if time permits we can start to prepare our book board.
The second day we will concentrate on creating your book, ie covering the book board, preparing the signatures and then binding the book using a French Link stitch over ribbons on the spine.
