Hello everyone! I took an unannounced blog break. I hope I have my “blah” days behind me now. I didn’t finish the ICAD project but I’m not going to beat myself up over it…I have three cards I’ll show in a future post but that’s it for the cards….I had fun but it’s time to move on.
I did make a new journal. I have decided, I prefer the sewn over tape book method for making journals. The spine on this one is covered with fabric from a worn out pair of blue jeans. The book covers are from an old Cokesbury Dinner and Banquet Book (rather obsolete these days, I think). I named it “Iconographic Journal” because I wanted something different from visual journal. My favorite icon in this book will be trees. I used some Stonehenge paper, old file folders, junk paper, and some thin watercolor paper. In my next book, I plan to use all Stonehenge paper. It’s very heavy weight paper and you can paint, glue, or watercolor on it without any buckling. I looked at several online art supply places and Daniel Smith has the best price at the moment. /I’m having problems with this post…I tried to post the link to Daniel Smith earlier and lost the entire post 😦 http://www.danielsmith.com/ If you haven’t tried Stonehenge, I highly recommend it…it comes in 22 x 30 inches sheets that can be torn or cut to any size.
