Stenciling gesso onto bookboard makes both a nice raised design and a resist.

My work area in Albie’s class. The bookboards above have been trimmed down and painted, and will be bound with a coptic or French stitch using the papers drying in the rear of the photos. A very wee book – I like small.

This is probably my favorite of the paste papers I made, even though I don’t usually work with these colors. I found that I was most satisfied with the papers that I didn’t think so much about. Even the “worst” papers I did will be useful as backgrounds or in pieces for collage or strips for paper weaving so I kept everything I did, and some of my classmate’s “trash” as well!
