|As usual, I put the shadow inside the bowl, but forgot to "ground" it with a shadow beneath. Duh!!|
I did start a new journal yesterday. The signatures spent the night in the press and the covers are cut to size. When finished it will be a coptic stitched 5 x 5 journal with 140# watercolor paper. Here are the covers cut to size:
|I've been using my Olfa rotary cutter and the blades are getting dull rather quickly.|
I purchased a scalpel and blades to make slits in book board for when I am brave enough to try sewn over tapes and the tapes woven through the covers, but don't know for sure what you put under your work to protect your table top. I'm not sure a self-healing mat is meant for that. Does anyone have any suggestions???
I also want to give a big thank you to Stacey-Ann Cole at Creativesque for the link to Khadi papers. I am going to try to get some and make a journal with it to see how I like it. Stay tuned.
I have some pretty pix from the yard to share with you - boy is it good to be home!
I am going to the post office today to send a journal in a bubble envelope to see what my shipping options are and then have to do some grocery shopping. I also have to take the old computer that was my daughter's to Office Depot to be picked up by FedEx. I am hoping to order the new one soon so I can transfer the contents of this one to it and get this one cleaned up to give to the daughter. Miss 8 can't wait and hates being without internet access and a word processor.
I am hoping to spend some time with my friend, Nancy, tomorrow. It's been way too long since we spent a day together. Then in the late afternoon, Miss 8 is riding the bus to my house and is spending the night. We are both quite excited about that, especially now that the weather has taken a turn for the better.
Well, I think I'd better get a move on if I am to get much accomplished today. I hope you are having a wonderful day and that I will "see" you again tomorrow.
