This is a book/panel/canvas assemblage. The panel comes off the canvas, and the book comes off the panel. (Look in the next installment for a peek inside the book.)
This is one page from my Specimens book, below. It's made of paperbags and was from a class taught by Mary Warner. This is still one of my favorites, and every time I see it I think "I want to make more paper bag books!"
The book is held together with a twig and rubber bands! But it's sturdy, and oh so fun.
This is one of the pages from my Pockets book. I found these denim "coasters" on clearance at Hobby Lobby, and immediately thought: BOOK!
This one is full of "tinsel and doodads" as my husband calls my embellishments.
