The second half of Sunday was spent making Journal Two of the Full Tilt Boogie class.
In fact I made two journals on Sunday and another one last night.
(spell book no. 1)
Journal Two has a hidden binding, but I decided not to use the bead string again. I used embroidery floss this time.
I still haven't gone out to get some waxed linen nor ordered any. Should probably get on that seeing as how this book binding will be a regular activity for me.
In the first spell book I attached a ratty, velvet strip to the inside of the spine to create a bookmark.
(spell book no. 2)
My second spell book had a dark green cover, so I painted it black. I think I'll put something around the spine or on the front cover, as well as add a closure ribbon.
I think I may leave the inside as it is, for a special something later on, but the first one I am super excited to fill "Practical Magic" like.
(a guide to italian architecture ~ journal no. 3)
This journal was meant to happen. Quite a few years ago, I bought this book to make an altered book/kind of scrapbook that would house all the architecture photos we took while in Italy. Obviously I never got around to it. Creating my own book block for it has totally spurred me forward with this project though.
I haven't decided yet if I'm going to leave the cover as is or gussie it up a bit.
Hmmm, what do you think I should do with it?
