Completion of My Metal Book


I wasn't sure it would be possible for me to finish this project, but alas, I have completed the book. While I'm happy with the results, this book does not have the finished, polished look of the book I made in class.

The coptic binding was easier that I was expecting, thanks to the detailed notes I had. After my class at Volcano Arts, my classmate Shari and I decided to write down detailed instructions on how to do that binding. Without those instructions, it would have been far more difficult.

Hi Vicki, This turned out wonderful. Good for you for sticking with it. I took a metal journal class at Artfest & thought I would shoot myself for doing that! To date, my journal is still not complete.

Thanks all! And Diane, I'm planning to submit photos of both books to a juried art show at the Anchorage Museum of History and Art. So I really HAD to finish it!

How very beautiful! Vicki, everything your hands touch is so pretty and there for the ages! You have really left your mark.
