Title: Write Now
Structure: Hardcover Blank Journal with Strap
Dimensions: 8 x 5 2/8
Video of my process.
Book 22 is absolutely one of my favs so far. It's the elastic strap that does it for me. I've been wanting to make my own books that have the elastic strap and so I'm really excited about this book. In fact, I was so excited, that I made two!!
For this book, I used book board for the covers and then covered those with a really thin and beautifully soft Japanese paper that I purchased from Flax Art and Design in San Francisco (one of my favorite places to shop for art supplies, and one of the most dangerous on my wallet).
This book is a blank journal for writing, but I could have used watercolor paper just as easily and made this an art journal. In fact, I probably will make a hard cover art journal using this structure. There's so much potential.
I'm looking forward to what next week brings. Stay tuned!
If you're watching the videos, I'm honored! If you're making the books, I'm intrigued, so please share here or on the Giving Hands Creative Community site.
