Is it no wonder this piece looks 3D?!

Meeting – February 9

The Flexagon book on Pg 126 of Alisa Golden’s Making Handmade Books will be our next project.  It is a book with four pages.  Do you have a story you can tell in 4 pages?  Perhaps you could collect 4 quotes from a favorite book or poet.  Anyone else have any ideas?

Supply list is minimal:
A square sheet of paper.  12 by 12 inches will yield a book about 6 inches.
Glue stick
Drawing tools
Multi Arts has changed their hours.  They now open at 10:00 am and our meeting time will therefore move to 10:00 on February 9.

Books from January Meeting

Betty led us in December in making small (4″ square) Coptic stitch books. We brought those books back this month and did a sort of round robin sketching session. Many of us were outside of our comfort zones, but everyone really enjoyed the session. Thanks for pushing us Betty.

Each person selected a theme for her book, then passed it to the next person to complete a quick sketch in the book that related to the theme in some way. Themes included nature, flowers, birds, mountains and clouds, sun, critters, and favorite things. Everyone put a sketch in each book. I love having a sketch from each member in my book – thanks to everyone for playing along.
