My signatures are done and bound but I CANNOT THINK what to do for the cover. I'm going to start on the inside and then hope inspiration strikes from there.

I think I need to call it finished - managed to get 7 pieces of watercolor paper folded in half into the book - it's now spread quite a bit beyond the binding - think I'll quite while I'm ahead!!!


It sounds epic! I can't wait to play in it  Grin My signatures are put together but now I need to find book board and decide what to do with the cover. (I always struggle with covers >.<' )

call me a noob but what are you all referring to when you say signatures? hope i didn't miss something! lol!
is anyone else finding it hard to decorate a page without going overboard? i'm finding it difficult keeping it simple enough so that my partner can 'craft' on it later. it looks so bare!!

You can always finish pages ... not everyone needs to be an *open* page.

If you have 100's of pages ... you put together a few pages at a time together in sections and then binding those sections together.  The signatures are those sections of a book.

A signature is a group of folded papers- most books have multiple signatures which are then bound to the spine of the book.

I finally got the signatures sewn together.  I started a couple of pages, and I'm going to scout out JoAnn's tomorrow for some stuff I was thinking of using on the cover - this is the funnest swap ever!
