i have moved several times in the past few years, and most of my finished projects have ended up in small boxes for safe keeping. yesterday, i opened one of these boxes and found sweet inspiration inside...a prayer journal that i made several years ago! the covers are made of thin sheets of brass metal (to protect the precious prayers inside!), and the spine is a piece of brown leather. the signatures inside have been sewn using a long-stitch method, and iridescent seed beads were added on the outside of the spine. the title "Stop, Drop & Pray" is the result of taking my original hand lettering and etching it into the metal...a fun process, but you definitely need a special place to do it and a good pair of rubber gloves! you can click on the photo for a larger view...and see more photos of this book here.
