Bookmaking

after reading Cover To Cover by Shereen LaPlantz i got inspired to try out the tape binding technique:

when that worked fairly nicely i tried it out with watercolor paper, left coverless to show off binding:

and lastly with my beloved strathmore mixed media paper:

created a cover with some cardboard covered in tissue paper. I love the size and the fact that the pages lay flat. and cannot stop making them!
