Book Binding Fun....

About a week ago I put together some journals after watching Effy Wild's free bookbinding class on Wild Soul Arts at New Year's. I have been know to stray from directions from time to time but they pretty much follow the concept. 
The big one ended up a little bigger than husband I were cutting some really big watercolor paper down sitting on the floor and I wasn't paying attention to numbers as usual. 
We were laughing so hard--he is VERY exact and I am VERY not!I

These are so fun to make. 
I have made them in the past, but never with a canvas cover. Now just to make that Gesso come alive :)


  1. Oh Maria, these are so pretty just the way they are, what a nice job you did. xox

  2. I love how you tied these off! They look so dang good! Can't wait to see what you do with the covers!

  3. Tape binding. Another popular technique with publishers is tape binding. This technique can be achieved with a Fastback device and it produces high-quality books that are perfect for distribution online and in bookstores. You can use Fastback machine to customize your document's spine which will make it easier for people to locate your work on a shelf. These devices can help you produce documents up to 3.5 times more quickly than the other techniques already mentioned.
