Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

Halloween FeatureDear DA friends,Halloween Feature1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I wanted to take this opportunity to tell fellow artists about my new website! Since publishing it about 2 weeks ago Ive already had a little over 600 hits! (which is a big deal to me!) The lady who set up the site for me has done a fantastic job and never in a million years did I imagine it to take off so well!
Anyway- Im saying all this because I am hoping my site will benefit my friends and fellow artists here as well. The last page of my site offers free stock that is either mine or other beneficial (free domain) stock that I have gathered elsewhere and collected as a "home" place. (Please understand the rightful owners to any stock included that is not mine will be formally credited and a link for download provided.No infringement intended. Also-there is no stock from DA on my page because obviously it is very easy to find stock here) The woman that "set up" my site used a free program called "Wix", and it can be tricky when trying to save an image to your c

Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha

Well, there was no big celebration of my master degree, we just had some evening with great deserts - but I want to celebrate it with the rest of the family too, because we are very close so after graduation ceremony, I think we would celebrate it in some restaurant or at least at home, but with a cake.
Oh food! Guess what, I got a looooot of weight back because of thesis stress
Unfortunately, I am that kind of person who really needs to eat when it is stressed. So I ate like an animal!!!!!!
