mini book

I had so much fun creating this little mini-book! I've got a whole stack for my upcoming workshop in Dallas and also as give-aways with purchase of the new 12x12 book.
I created the little book to fit on an 8.5 x 14 sheet of paper, then embellished with rubber stamps and markers and folded them into the book format.

The needed one more interesting element, so I printed out these quotes about creativity on different colors of paper.

Here's my favorite...

You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. — Maya Angelou

I zigzagged stitched down the spine to hold the whole thing together, adding the creative quote strip in the middle. It's kind of like a fortune cookie!

Every day I'm discovering new "truths" about being an artist. Today I've reconfirmed that when the mess in the studio gets out of control, loud music helps with the clean up.

I love that last is oh so true!

Are you my child. I must have loud music for cleaning my studio.

My favorite loud cleaning music is Welcome to the Jungle. Works every time.
