painting on books

Drawing on text paper and outlining in white.

This little book is adorable and very easy to make. 1. Cut chip board and paper sheets to the same size (I used 8.5x11 paper). 2. Fold chip board and paper in half. 3. Use an awl and poke holes along the fold (spine) an inch apart. 4. Use book binding thread and needle to sew string through the holes. Pull taut and finish with a knot. 5. press firmly along folded spine to close book. 6. Use xacto knife and straight edge to trim excess paper from side opposite spine. ta-da!

Found poetry and design made by drawing and coloring on an old book page.

Nice journal idea - might work over handwriting too?
