My 9-drawer box was accepted into the Fiber Arts Festival, which starts today at the Sequim Museum. The box, drawers and journal are covered with coordinated fabric. If you have a chance to stop by and see it, please do. The reception is tonight, which unfortunately, I cannot attend. But I did stop by this afternoon and took at look at the extraordinary exhibit. It is definitely worth the trip. The exhibit will be up until the end of November.
I’ve been playing with making boxes lately. Here are some that are now completed.
I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.
The newest children’s book that I illustrated is just about ready to head to print and should (fingers crossed) be ready for the Sequim Lavender Festival. Here is the cover of this book. It was a lot of fun to do the illustrations in this book.
I just finished painting a bunch of fabric to use to make into book covers. The next step is to get these cut out and start the process of making the journals. I’ll keep you posted.
I am so happy that Olympic Stationers in Port Angeles is now carrying some of my journals.
I have now taken Bookbinding 1 and 2 and they are great classes for learning the basics of classic bookmaking. Here are the 2 books we made during the last class. It is amazing the details involved in making these books.
I just finished my first set of travel journals. They are small 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 soft cover journals with a closing flap. They include a pen and have beads on the spine.
