Made From Scratch

My favourite kind of albums / books are the kind that are made absolutely from scratch - without any pre-made album covers or pages.  Major sense of satisfaction.  Of course, this doesn't happen very often (it's tiring to figure out measurements and my brain isn't wired for numbers) but here's one I made recently for class:

It's made of pieces of cardboard box wrapped with raw canvas.

Closed
 Open
 Inside - accordian books
 back

The canvas cover's covered with mists and ink and stamping - which makes for yummy messy fingers in the process.  Best part of class.

 The little metal clothes hanger is just too cute

A big inky-fingered hi-five to all the lovely ladies who joined this class - we had fun eh?  :) and a special hello to Jamie who spent part of her holiday with us!
