Bookbinding + Painting + Printmaking = Happy Me

Day 41/365OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sometimes I indulge myself and combine mediums.  Such is the case with this series of blue painted and relief-printed Longstitch journals.  I’ve done this before with other painted journals, but recently came across these photos and felt the urge to share.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Details are everything, matching beaded closures is a thing of beauty (to me anyways).

As many bookbinders and other makers of handmade items know, creating in multiples is key.  These books are no exception.  But make no mistake; each is unique in placement of the cover patterns and images.  Designing these books, the covers and crafting these pieces is the sort of project that keeps me happy!
