AEDM Challenge day 1

For the challenge AEDM day 1 I finished making up these 2 journals both are from paintings from Julie and Chris's texture town assignment. The books measure 51/2 x 7 1/2
3 signatures. 30 plus pages
I added a few extra pages in case the special someone who takes these books wants to work in paint the day, they will need to glue a couple of sheets together. The paper is 50# drawing weight. Perfect for anything not wet.

I did them up in the Coptic stitch which allows a book to lay flatter than is one book open.

This is the edge of the book to show my binding for the both of them.
I did the fronts and the back of each book at the same time so they would resemble each other.
Did YOU art today???
Join in the Art Every Day Month Challenge.
Thanks for coming by...come back tomorrow to make sure I arted..:)

LOL. It's early, but I'm about to start arting! I like the covers, myself. Very rich looking.

Hi, Mary! I think it is great that you are going to do Art Every Day of the Month! Sounds like a great challenge! Very pretty journal. I like how the pages seem to lay flat. :-)
