I’m really trying to get better at this binding stitch technique. I like that you can still see the title peeking through.
I’m still getting used to my japanese screw punch. I sometimes have trouble aligning the holes on the crease of the papers. So the holes peek out from some of the pages. It’s definitely something I’ll be working on.
I really like using old calendars, the paper is so sturdy and soft and the images are lovely.
I made this small book for friends of ours who are getting married this summer. I used lots of nautical papers because they live near the Atlantic Ocean. I also put in paper that had hearts or a love theme. They live in an old Quebec style house, made of wood with a lovely barn next to it. So I also put in lots of woodgrain and farm papers.
All this bookbinding for others made me kind of jealous! I’ve been meaning to make myself a writing journal for a while now. Just a place for long-winded written-out interior dialogues! I love unicorns, so this cover was just perfect for me.
Seeing some of these papers together just makes me very happy and excited to write.
