A Collection of Tanka
Two posts in one day? Crazy! I made this book over the summer. I originally intended it to be something entirely different, but the covers didn't turn out as I was expecting them to. I have all sorts of collaged material under there, but the top layer of paint really covered it up more than I thought it would, so I made a different book instead. You can't really tell from the photos but I also splashed high gloss decoupage glue onto the covers so that most is mat, but it has shiny splatters on it. Each signature is wrapped in a sheet of gold vellum (my new favorite paper, it's so pretty). 8 signatures, coptic stitch, 128 pages, 4" x 6". I am planning on using it as a little journal for tanka.
