HOMEWORK in preparation of next class Sunday, July 29, 12 noon.
- Ink edges of book pages
- Ink edges of canvas binding strips
- Cut out cut-apart pieces that you would like to use
- Use stylist to soften edges and make cut-aparts stand up in center
- Ink edges of cut-aparts, recommended colors – antique linen or smoked hickory.
- Tear poetry into squares/rectangles, and decide where to possibly place, clip to journal page.
- Take one layer of paper off one side of the cardboard square I passed out, and color it as you like (paint, ink, stain) … mine was red and had the barn on top.
- Look at my pages and begin to decide your placement of additional pieces/embellishments (do not affix). Place intended design reminders on your pages with post-it-notes, for example pop-ups, where your magnets are placed, and your pocket page. Work on remaining pages with no design yet chosen — how would you like to design them; and work what on you would like to use an an interactive flap card above the magnets. Also, I have a brown glassine envelope, but I gave you each a clear glassine substitute envelope — what would you like to embellish the glassine envelope with? And, what piece of paper would you like to use as a pull out tag for inside the glassine envelope. I have a card board square that lifts up, and I have two flap cards that “Open” off the page from magnets from right to left. If this is confusing, we can do it in class.
- Also … FYI, here is the link to the YouTube video with wire and bead binding instructions …
Here are my pages as examples … your paper may or may not be the same. Use my pages as technique and design ideas.
spread THREE, uses one cut out bicycle as pop-up, verse on tag and envelope
spread four, uses glassine envelope, magnet, opens right to left.
spread FIVE, has pocket page, magnet, and open upward flap with barn on front of flap.
See you next week, great job!!
