hey all,
this is my first attempt at crafty bookmaking.  it was for an assignment for my "ecofeminism" course.  we had to do a nature writing piece and i decided to gather some flowers/leaves from the spot i was writing about and make a nature journal instead. naturally i got an A+  Tongue anyway im also thinking of submitting it in the environmental art festival my faculty has in the spring. i hope you like it.


front cover. i used a ripped up cardbord box which i think looks strangly organic, and paper that i dyed with various teas to get slightly orange/green/red tones


leaves and text (yes that is the craftster website on my desktop.)


flowers

Looks good. Nice textures and I like the idea of recylcling cardboard.  Smiley
