More With Dyan Reavley

Our second class on Saturday was another book, completely different, but also full of sprays, inks, paints and stamps. And plenty of Dyan's techniques.

We decorated a variety of papers (including a sheet of sticky back canvas), not yet having a clue how they would become a book. Then followed Dyan's excellent directions, doing some folding and snipping and voila! We had a lovely little book with a canvas cover and several pages that fold out to reveal more inky goodness beneath.

The books were bound with some very simple stitching that even a total sewing-a-phobe can do.

Lovely Eileen... hard to tell what is canvas and how it folded, but it sure looks intriguing... and looks like you had a fun time with color... I think I would have enjoyed doing this, too!

I'd probably run from all the colors on a background page but I know you will make something wonderful out of each...I'm sure it was a fun time making these! Diann
