I have had a really busy week but in the spirit of Paint Party Friday I made some time this afternoon to sit and do some quick watercolours from some sketches that I have been wanting to get to for a while now. I have this idea of compiling all the watercolours I have been doing like this over the last few months into a handmade journal and then working back into them all one they are bound.
Of course then I look at the whole process of binding and putting together a journal and get completely freaked out. It seems like there are a huge number of opportunities for someone with my coordination to put that awl thingy through a finger or some other horrible situation. It would also involve sewing so that pretty much rules me out. I may have to do more research on the idea. I would love to hear how other people have done the hand bound journal or artists books if you have any tips for me. Just keep in mind that I am possibly the worlds most uncoordinated person!
