Making and writing and painting and drawing and glueing in journals – some are altered books

Yes, I already spilled something on the “Sticks and Stones” journal, made with pizza box covers and my handmade paper.

Here’s the first handbound book, covers made from a Kandinsky poster book, paper made by Susanne Martin.

I used these sunflower petals in some handmade paper and saved the stalks to make paper with later. The sunflowers are from a Handance Farm CSA. The echinaecea is from the Back Forty.
