Wordless Wednesday: Book Arts Class

I recently took a Book Arts class at the Owatonna Arts Center with a friend. We had the opportunity to design and make a bunch of paste papers for covers and then chose our favorite to make a book out of. I expanded upon what we did in class and embellished it further and changed it to a bound book rather than an accordion one when I was home. I decided to combine my new craft of book are with my other crafts of pottery and loom knitting. I'm crafty like that. :)








I gave the journal I made to a friend for her birthday along with some nice pens.
