Whew! The title says it all! I made this book to go with my copper enameling project. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=256729.0) The theme was the environment. And what a better way to go with the theme than recycled materials? I made the pages from an old national geographic magazine. I bound them with a variation of Japanese stab binding that you can find anywhere on the net. I altered the pages with gel pen. I will only show a few of my favorite pages since there are so many.

The cover

And some of the pages

I think it looks really nice, love the colors - especially how the green & blue on the cover ties everything together.

Thank you! I couldn't decide what color to go for the thread and a friend suggested blue. I was a little skeptical but it turned out great  Smiley
