Sometimes...in my book
Mary is quite contrary
she drops modesty.
This is a "new" art journal.
A different journal to mail back and forth between
just one other artist.
I am still just using what I have
so this journal is made from the covers of an old journal
that I made from an old book in 2006.
So it is up-cycled and recycled.
I gutted the old pages and cut up old file folders
for the pages. They are nice for wet mediums.
I sewed it together with twine
and the coptic-stitch binding.
I still may have to change the cover a little bit...
it feels a little bit...
immature to me now.
The book used to be called
The Joys of Being a Woman
perfect, isn't it?
Anyway, it's fun to have a new project.
I really love swapping books back and forth.
It is just so inspiring to see other artists
work with my own hands
(if you know what I mean)
