I am excited to have my article: Flip, Flaps and Fold-outs, Adding Dimension to your Art Journals, included in the special edition of Cloth Paper Scissors PAGES. This is created especially for art journalers and book artists looking for new techniques and inspiring ideas. This 148-page first issue features projects and galleries in general bookmaking, book covers, book binding, inside page decoration, and art journaling.
PAGES is avalable at our local Barnes & Noble book store. It can also be ordered online as a digital file or hard copy at the Interweave online store.
Here is an excerpt from my article in PAGES:
Artists are very tactile. Inserting dimensional objects such as flaps, dividers, pockets, ribbons, or tags in our art can add an element of mystery and engage the viewer. Index-card dividers open up to reveal photos or journaling, adding intrigue and a desire to explore beyond the flat dimension of the page. I often include favorite lines of poetry, photos of my family, and little treasures of love inside library pockets. Shipping and marking tags become the holders of meaningful words and little on-the-go sketches.
