this weekend, ian and i participated in the legendary secret santa exchange (it was our first) with the philly crew. i got rachael, and since i know she likes altering books, i thought i'd make her one. above are the outer covers. below are the inner covers.
i did the binding in coptic stitch, and i thought i did reasonably well, though i did rip some of the watercolor paper i put in the book. i put water color paper, two different types of sketch paper, black paper, and little inserts from a japanese workbook. i didn't want to bombard you with pictures, so i only did the two scans above. if you want to see more, you'll have to check with rachael.
as for my gift, i got a beautiful three-toed sloth bag from the beautiful eleanor. yay for eleanor!!
