This is so exciting, I just finished my first hand bound art journal. Yay Me!!!
Thought that I wasn't going to finish this weekend, since I've been sick, but I felt better in the afternoon and completed it.
I am taking a class with Effy Wild called Book of Days Boot Camp and Chapter One was to make a hand bound Art Journal. At first I questioned myself: Why would I want to do this, if I can go to the store and buy one?
Wow, I was so wrong. The experience is incredible. You feel this deep connection with your work, it reflects who I am at the specific moment that I made it. Lets face it, we are continuously changing, so no two books will be the same.
Here is my creation:
|Quote: The only journey is the journey within." - Rainer Maria Rilke|
For the cover I used Daler Rowney acrylic paints (Metallic Green, Permanent Rose, Cobalt Blue Hue, Silver Imit, White), Archival Ink ( Jet Black, Magenta Hue, Saffron), Versamark, Perfect Pearls (Sunflower Sparkle, Grape Fizz), Tim Holtz stamps and Inkadinkado .
I am so ready to begin working the inside of my Book of Days, this is such an amazing experience.
I would like to share this at:
