I've been enjoying myself with some basic notebook making.
I know it doesn't look like a notebook. In fact, it *is* an old cigarette pack that I sanded, gessoed, painted and varnished. I'm happy with how it turned out. 

Except...the case looked a little full...


See, there they go, all better now.

What I've been working on.

 This is the current art project, it's about 18 inches by 30 inches. I'm working on paper that I've treated heavily with gesso. The first layer of text is done with graphite (a no-wood pencil) then I hit it up with matte medium to give it a look similar to ivory and the white layer of text is gesso because I love the effect it has in the light.
 Here's a closeup, if you're curious. Oh the text is the Psalms, in Latin.
 I'm also working on a bead-embroidered bracelet. 

As always, click on the pictures for enlargements.
