Bookmaking Binge

Since I made hard covered journal style books in a book making workshop 
just over a month ago, I have been wanting to make more of 
these type of books.

And I finally had some time to do that
Below are images of the three hard covered journals I recently finished.

These books are about 6.5 X 10 inches when closed  - pages about 12 X 9.5 inches when open

The inside pages are made with watercolour paper
and can be painted on, glued onto, or drawn onto with a variety of mediums.

The outside covers are decorated with paint and ink as well as paper I decorated, 
and copies of my drawings or photographs .

I am now finishing up some small books that I hope to share soon.
A definite bookmaking binge!


  1. How beautiful these are. They make me think I must find a workshop. It' something I've been wanting to do for a long time.

  2. There's nothing like holding a book you made yourself in your hands. These are scrumptious! ♥♥♥♥

  3. kim, these are *absolutely gorgeous*!! wow... very inspiring... thank you!


  4. Lovely. I really like the bird, so sweet.

  5. I like the movement in your art. Looks alive! So inspiring for the artist within :-)

  6. These are beautiful Kim, I love the way your backgrounds are so alive, as if it is the breeze itself. I am wishing you lovely holidays and cozy time at home as wintertime settles in.
