Long time since I posted… this is a gift I made for a friend… the crude stitching is crude on purpose… kinda was going for a super rustic messy kind of look with this… I think I achieved it pretty well. Anyway, my friend loves it… and that was the point. Looking forward to more book making in the future.
This one… well, this was from a class I took recently… “Mental Health Art Journaling”
They wanted us to kinda keep it positive… which is fine… this opened the door for me to use up much of what I have accumulated over the years — old writings, drawings, clippings, etc. I have saved things with the intention of creating a zine… and lo, the things do sit. I will be excited to play around some more.’
I am not intent on these being positive for myself. I have a ton of old poetry that would be perfect paired with a mixed media project like this.
