book arts, weaving

Moving on – book covers

Book covers in progress. Painted papers from Albie Smith’s workshop + trash pickings from Patti Grass’ workshop. I can never stay out of a trash can at a book/paper art workshop.

The last two covers are for a book that I was stuck on for a long time. Finally I decided to ditch the idea and cover it up with these weavings. I plan to wrap the edges with foil tape or other strips of paper.

Sometimes it is difficult to let an idea go – you don’t know whether you’re being a quitter or being lazy. Sometimes you have to do it to move on. Wisdom is knowing the difference. That applies to nearly everything in life. I hope one day to become an expert at it.
