A wonderfull adventure and a new dimension to my Art


This winter while I was in Florida I took classes at the Owl and the Pussycat stamp boutique, Regina is a wonderful artist and makes the most beautiful Art projects.  Among those is "handmade artbooks".... I never thought I would become so passionate about this, at first it even scare me it seemed so complicated.  But, with Regina as a teacher and lots of patience I overcame my fears and am now mad about those.

The one you can see above " Sheer Delight" is my first, the it is done with the Coptic stitch, the cover and back is made of several layers of fabric and ornaments it has a Vintage look. It's a book of 8½ X 6 and has 64 writing/decorating pages.

I have an other one completed and will post it soon.

It does not mean I will stop my Cardmaking but I will combine these two form of art.
