Just Finished

Just finished making my latest Watercolor/Sketchbook Journal...Now I'd better get painting & sketching :-) The first one I made is getting quite filled. It's a lot of fun making these, but I need to "limit" myself. I was quite excited to run into a (Bookbinding) classmate of mine (Betsy V.) at Hiller's Market. We couldn't stop chatting--we did make plans to take a trip to Hollander's in Ann Arbor together, so she can get the pieces she needs to start and finish her book. I realized when I started to work on this black & white print paper that is was fairly soft (?) and I wonder how it will "hold up." We'll see! The trouble is that I already have a paper in mind for my next book. Better get my brushes and finish up the first book. :-) I'm having too much fun! (isn't that what this is all about???)

Marj - this is absolutely beautiful! If you give it an acetate book jacket(like we did in class) it ought to hold up just fine. I think you can get a piece at a craft store, sold as a clear "sleeve" to protect paintings and prints. How fun to run into Betsy V!
