Book Arts: first project

On the first day of class we learned two things: how to make paste paper and how to make a flutter book (a book made from folding and cutting one piece of paper). Paste paper is making patterned paper with acrylic paint mixed with water and paste. Then you make patterns with combs and cards and whatever. It's a lot of fun but I have so much more to learn.

Our first assignment was to make a book combining at least two types: flutter, accordion, scroll, pamphlet. I used all but the accordion. The concept was color, which I quite enjoyed. The cover papers are all paste papers. I pamphlet stitched white pages in between, which you can't quite see.  The scroll holds a matching pen and the string tie can tuck into the center pocket.
