Handmade Journals & Foster Avenue House

I recently took a bookmaking class on Japanese stab binding. Here is a photo of two of the books I made.

The painting of the blue house was done locally in Sayville. It is 3 x 5.

WONDERFUL journals!! I took some of those bookmaking classes and had a ball! Only wish I had added watercolor paper to them!! LOVE the blue house too, Joan! It's in the 70s already .... maybe our weather will finally stabilize!
