I’ve been on a bookmaking binge using black Artagain paper and Sakura Gelly roll pens. At the first Illuminated Book Class I taught a lovely student gave me a blank small handmade book and I filled it up with gel pen drawings. I continued making books of my own, and started cutting and punching through some of the pages. It’s fun to see something evolve like this. You never know where a technique will take you so it’s good to stick with it and see what happens.
The next Illuminated Letter Class is September 9th at Artistic Artifacts. Come along for the journey where I’ll be sharing all these techniques and more.
