Not giving up my day job

I’m still under the weather from this blasted laryngitis, so I haven’t had a lot of creative time of late, and I’m missing it! So earlier this week, I set myself up at the coffee table with watercolour paper and thread, and decided to try my hand at a little bookbinding again. I should mention that my previous attempts have been beyond dismal, but practice makes perfect, right?

This is far from perfect, but it’s done, and that is so often better than perfect, don’t you think? The binding is still very loose, and I’m not sure if it will hold up to the level of abuse my journals usually receive, but I’m sure I’ll find a way to reinforce it. Its a little rough and ready, imperfect and flawed, but so am I – match made in heaven!

Happy arting!
