book of days... bookbinding!

I am about to start Book Of Days with Effy Wild.  Very excited about it, and was stoked to be able to learn how to do bookbinding in Boot Camp on Wild Soul Arts.  I have been wanting to learn this art for a LONG time but was intimidated.  Watching Effy do it step by step made it less ascary...

Gathered my supplies, watched the videos and ... voila.  My own art journal, ready to start the class....

I realized too late that the ribbon closure would cover my 'book of days' writing, but oh well, I'll have to live with it.  And yes, the eyes are a photocopy of my Serenity drawing... 

and ...  I didn't even bleed on it.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! I think 2013 will hold some wonderful gentle surprises for you. Namaste.

  2. Love it! It's a very satisfying thing to make your own journal and you did a beautiful job!

  3. A further method that might prove particularly suitable when you're publishing a book for children, or a cookbook, is that of wire binding. First of all a line of holes are punched along one side of the pages and the front and back covers, then a twin wire loop is inserted through these.
