Day 15: Bookmaking 101

Well we are half way through, and I haven't given up! I'd say that's a good sign, although I still have to think up 16 more projects :) Tonight I thought I'd try my hand at simple bookmaking. Finding some leftover watercolor paper from a past project and some craft paper I measured and cut about six pages along with a front and back cover, scored them with a bone folder, pierced them with my needle tool and used binding thread to tie the signature. And Viola! A mini watercolor book that I can fit in my pocket and take on excursions. My assignment to you, use scrap paper and make a recycled book, they are great for spontaneous sketching or for gluing photos in.
