Book structures from a class I attended
during February and March, taught by
Debra Bachelder at the Marion Public
Library. We learned how to make
some very cool folded book structures!
The class was free (I think funded by the
Ohio Arts Council) and all supplies provided.
I did take some of my own pre-painted
papers for the insides and decoration of
the books, as you can see above.
The red book reads "color heals."
That's absolutely the way I feel
in the midst of winter. I need some
color to help counteract the
lack of sunshine!
Debra provided plenty of
gorgeous papers, and class members
also shared some of their resources.
I am not sure I can recreate this book
outside of class, but I really like the tabs
that swing out and reveal whatever art
or words have been added.
The 'House Book' was made from a
house-shaped template with a tab on one
side, and pages were adhered together.
I used photos of winter trees and snow
for the covers, a couple of my twisted tree
drawings, and quotes about winter.
Pleased with the way it turned out.
There were other structures which I don't
have a photo of, but they are currently at
the library for an Open House. I will try to
share them later.
Linking up for T Day, when I join
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog hop.
We visit each other, share a beverage,
and an assortment of art and photos,
maybe even some treats or a recipe.
Stop by for a chat...
I've been faithfully journaling in my
Hobonichi Techo every day, and enjoying
adding some drawings that are
Coffee, tea, and journaling...
Is it Spring yet?!
