Long Stitch Book

Long Stitch Book

I have enjoyed making books ever since I made my first one many years ago, and about a year ago I discovered a great book arts group right here in the town where I live.  It is a great group of artists who are up for just about anything.  I taught this book structure at our last meeting.  Thanks to Kelley Walker for teaching this structure at My Heart's Fancy a few months back.  The covers are some of my gelli plate printed papers and the spine is sticky back canvas painted with acrylic paint.

That's beautiful, Cheryl. I love the colors you've chosen.

I love it! I have recently discovered the long stitch and am about to embark on some experiments of my own using it. And I just found out about sticky back canvas. Now that I see how you have used it, I may need to get some and try it out. You are lucky to have discovered that group. Hope to see more of this on your blog.
