CBH Challenge for Aug 19th


I've been really busy making journals and since I was in that mode, I made this weeks CBH Challenge as a journal too. I have the Modern Mark Making book by Lisa Engelbrecht and I noticed the way it was bound and said I had to try that. It's the best of both worlds being coil bound and hard cover bound so you don't see the coils. Love it and will make more, but it is labour intensive...

I also went to a friend's house yesterday for a play day. A couple other friends were there too and we did Suminigashi marbling. Lots of fun. It's more delicate coloring than the marbling I did last year, but for the right items will work really well. I digress, while we were playing my friend showed us an accordion journal she had made and the covers were done with a weaving technique that uses two pieces of decorative paper with the same design. I was intrigued, so tried that and it worked out really well and had a space in the design where I could add the Asian symbol for "Dream" which is this week's theme.
