Making a spiral bound journal

This week I have been continuing my adventures with book making under the expert tuition of Janina Maher. We made ringbinder journals, using a machine to make the holes and put in the spirals. I have learned a lot about the importance of accurate cutting of the paper! The paper I used for the cover is handmade from Thailand, and the inside is kraft paper.

A Present from India

Woodblocks from India, a present from my husband's trip to Mombai.
They are hand carved and he bought them in a market. I can't wait to try
them! They will be put to good use.
