Book Making

I took a class this year, from my friend Pat McGraw, in book making. She makes several types of books and adds poems or sayings and copies of or originals of her artwork. They are clever and creatively made. I made my first attempt at bookmaking by making books for my nieces wedding shower. I took copies of photos and put those on the covers of the books. I had to cut many sheets of paper to make them in the size I wanted. I had 6 pages per book. I used copies of my own paintings then cut pieces of blank paper so people could write a note to Lisa and Nat, the bride and groom, and give them some marriage advice. I thought they turned out terrific and Lisa thought they were very clever! If my iphoto will cooperate I will include a picture also.
