The Sunday Paper #286
November 17, 2019
I am in love with kraft tex, which is similar to leather but it’s paper! It comes in a variety of fun natural and bright colors and is easy to cut and sew. This is the July project in The Paper Year. Are you following Elissa Campbell of Blue Roof Designs? She’s making all of the projects this month, and she’s about half way through. That’s her journal on the right with The Paper Year. Here’s part of what she had to say about this project: “July’s project is the “Paper Leather Book Cover”. The cover is reusable in that you can take out the pages when the book is full and then sew in new blank pages. The cover is super tough. Take this journal on your summer vacation – it can handle the abuse”. Oh, and that penguin paperclip is made of paper – too cute!
You’ll get a sheet of kraft tex (in a natural color) and one of those cute paper clips in the custom paper pack that’s available with The Paper Year.
I had such fun with the teachers who took my workshops at the Louisiana Art Education Association conference last weekend. Their hand shadow puppets were so varied, and we had fun with the shadows.
