I Couldn't Stop at Just One


After I made my last 8 fold book, I saw an article in the Bow Valley Calligraphy Guild journal for a larger 8 fold book.  My first was made from an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper.  This one was made from an 11" x 17" piece.


The article provided some different decorating prompts:  watercolor, collage, and pencil crayon, in addition to letters.

These really are addictive.  What I love most about them is that you begin the process by decorating the full sheet of paper, before folding.  After you have folded your book, you have partially decorated pages on which to write additional quotes and apply finishing touches.
