Hello Creatives! Kirsten here back with a bookmaking adventure using the January StencilClub stencils. Seth Apter and Mary Beth Shaw are the designers this month and the stencils are FABULOUS.
I like the mix of organic and geometric shapes. There is a lot of movement and variety in the designs which will help lead the eye around your compositions.
I was inspired to create a grungy collection of mixed media "pages" from mat board and heavy watercolor paper. I layered gesso, dictionary paper and acrylic paint into abstract compositions. I like them as they are but I can see possibilities for further artmaking.
Spiral binding is an easy way to bind thick pages. You can take your pages to a shop that provides binding services but for these I knew a perfectly imperfect binding by hand was the way to go.
Take a look at the video below to see my process. Happy Creating!
