This week I’ve received two of my favorite artsy/craftsy publications, Bound & Lettered and Artitudezine. As I’ve been out in the evenings this week with book groups I haven’t had a chance to really look at these but I finally found some time to glance through them.
Bound & Lettered has some good articles from an introduction to colored pencils to how to make a love note bookmark. I may have to try that project asap. There is also a very detailed article on two needle coptic binding. I barely remember how to do one needle coptic binding so I don’t see myself trying this one anytime soon. And, I saw a mention of the upcoming book arts conference in Oregon. You do not know how much I want to go to that!
Artitudezine’s Winter issue also has some informative articles but the one item that caught my attention first was that Suzanne Simanaitis, the creative muse behind the zine, has a book out! Kaleidoscope is a book designed to spark your creativity. Enough said, I’ve already ordered it.
Is it the weekend yet? I want to craft.
