know life


i thought i'd share one of my most recent books with you today.  this blank journal is covered with linen book cloth and bound using a 6-needle coptic stitch.  the quote on the front is actually a clear sticker that i've had forever, and i burnished it onto one of the decorative papers that i used inside the book.  then, i inset it onto the front cover to help keep it protected.  i think that these papers have a little bit of a 60's vibe...you can see more photos here!

Hi Lori,

I stumbled upon your blog from Stacis...you seem familiar to me...I think we met in Florida at an art doll workshop? check my my blog to see if this is so...I am member of The Weavers Guild and visit my mom often in Merritt Island. Your books are wonderful.
