  1. It's a more fumbly-bumbly process than I anticipated! Oops, that didn't come out right. I don't mean YOU are awkward, but rather the process is awkward. I could almost do a book right along with you as I watch the video. Thanks for putting this video together -- I know how time-consuming it can be.

  2. Thanks for this video Laura! I am really appreciate of you doing these videos, you are a wealth of knowledge and I feel that I am getting to know you very well following your blog and getting to hear you in person on the videos. Question: If you were to make one with watercolor paper for a mixed media journal, would you change any of the binding ideas?
    Thanks in advance

    1. Sharon I would keep the binding as is but change the papers as of use a Arche's Text Wove and then you have to figure out the size of things and cut, longer process which I'm going to give it a good soon with a pad of mixed media paper and just make the covers a bit larger to fit the folding of the pad of paper so I don't have to cut. Confusing but I share when I get it going.


Thank you for stopping by and viewing my collage chatter, many creative blessings and peace to you and yours,
