A few weeks ago I posted about my experience at Shakerag, and the book I made in Daniel Essig's workshop. I loved every single thing about the workshop. (Maybe I shouldn't share how much I loved that workshop, as I want to make sure I get a spot next year!)
But, I did love it. And I want to show you the inside of my book.
Unlike most of the books I make, this one has mica pages in addition to the blank pages.
But, not simply mica pages . . . (yeah, that bent end-page bugs me too)
Mica pages that have been constructed.
Elements have been added . . . like this locust wing that I found last summer.
I knew it would come in handy.
Like this page from the front of a German song book in which someone wrote their own music and this feather . . .
Like this bit of lace that I got from my friend Joanna.
The lace came from a book she got from her Nana.
It was the perfect thing to nestle between pages.
I found quite a few treasures to display between those mica pages.
Yep. Stuff. We all have it.
This workshop at Shakerag was awesome.
And Daniel Essig was an amazing teacher. I found this venue by following him.
