Mondays are devoted to on line classes and tutorials. The next altered book class is about embellishing edges. I had wondered about waxed thread but apparently it isn't stiff enough for edges so I bought some fine (I hope) wire that includes colour options!
The bigger leaves aren't quite closed so the wire slips off. I can do some pinching or find some coarser wire. But first I need to reinforce an edge and then paint it with some black gesso.
While I wait for the glue and paint to dry on the book I got caught up on the calendar pages. These are evolving as I practice and fine tune the layouts. Let's face it. Two pages for 7 days is over-kill! My life isn't that exciting. I'm not sure I want to change the whole concept now so I shall just make some small changes.
I like the tag idea and pockets are such fun and can hold all the bits of things I collect in my pocket through the week. This was a great week. I got 3 big things crossed off the list.
note to self: go back and put big red ticks by the the three dates of accomplishments!
I need to get at least one photo of the week. I'm learning how to print these and experimenting with size. Even though the printer needs coloured ink I will stick with the black and white images.
I am also getting the sense that less is more so I'll be making my pages simpler. Yay for pockets!
I won't start the colour class as I need to get those story bags stitched up and the grass cut.
The days are flowing by and it is up to the individual to add a bit of embellishment to the day!
