I'm working on books

ohhhh blogger. I wrote a nice long blog and I pushed the publish button and poof, it all disappeared

The book above is a "guest" book I found at the Goodwill yesterday. $2 It is filled with watercolor paper, I added a picture of the cover in the little inset

Hears what I have to show you. I found this old dictionary. Brown linen, but the letters were indented...I wanted to see what would happen, I painted then rolled gesso over the the letters to make the letters show up The black edges are raw since I cut the spine off, to cover it up, I took some canvas from my canvas pad, glued and painted it.



I'm adding 3 signitures, I don't have them stitched yet, I filled this book with 140lb watercolor paper to use at Pam Garrisons class in Aug.
