My Moon Book with Tamiko

I love to create books and I don't always have a reason or content to put in them (shrugs).  Sometimes I just create to CREATE. Today I created a moon book.  While on a search for moon related quotes, I said, "I may just use this book to record some of my favorite moon inspired quotes." Here is my today's project.


I created my paper first from, using the Arnold Grummer (AG) Papermill Kit. The papers I recycled were old Christmas wrapping paper in red and white. For this batch I almost doubled my normal loose handful of torn paper bits.  To see how to create your own papers with this kit, you can check out Mr. Grummer's how to process, by clicking here. Because this book's paper was rather thick, and not your average sheet of handmade paper, the page itself required actual scissors or a blade to shape.  I decided not to support the book with any type of book board. I was able to score my page, to include a spine with a weak paper cutter blade.

I embellished the book with a small stamp from Rubber Moon by Claudia Rose. I used a quote I saw once on pinterest (smiles), and adhered it and the image with my trusted Helmar's Crafts and Hobby PVA Glue.  Cute, clean and simple.
