I took a class from Rosie Kelly and we had fun using our stash which I have plenty of- practice papers from previous classes, exercizes in making marks and backgrounds, etc!
The cover in the next photos was something done in Judy Melvin's class (from a long time ago!) and I think it was done with gesso which is the texture. Some of the gestural writing is from Georgia Deaver's class and the watercolor papers were added to on the back to finish the pages. I still have to add more and decide on the words I want to add. This class was awesome and everyone created some beautiful books!
We also made the slender book the first day of the two day class. It helped us try out the inks and get momentum for the larger book.
