Chunky Arts Book ll

 These books are really fun to make.  As the snippets and the little pieces of art pile up it's fun to put it all together. One of these days, maybe for the next one I will attempt to sew one together.  The only bad thing is that the colors just don't come through on the video as bright or true as they really are---but it is what it is!!!

I love it too!
I love the eclectic mix you have in your work...the precise and perfect calligraphy mixed with the whimsy of your painting and mixed media!

Martha - I LOVE your book! You do so many different styles of lettering too - besides the formal calligraphy and the brush lettering - do you have any other classes planned for those? I love learning lettering styles!

You've done it again!! Such an inspiring video...I just want to go to my studio and make one too. I bought the bind-it-all and have everything ready for one of these FAB chunky books. Did you bind the background pages first and then put it all together? Or each page, then bind it together?? Inquiring minds need to know!!! What a show piece!! Love the fabric and ribbon ties along the binder!! Just too wonderful...AGAIN!!

Martha - what a wonderful book, and such a great way of keeping together all those loose bits of artwork...
I have taken the liberty of posting the video on the Journal Craft blog - I hope that is OK?

Lori said it best: Love Love Love! What a treasure to have these chunky books. I have a feeling that santa is going to buy me a professional book binder this year!

Hi Martha! I love your new book, soooo cool! And the art works created I think from many days of work have a beautiful yummy composition like this! I`ve noticed your watercolor skills are just beautiful, those flowers...! :) And Loved the door as well!
I will sing all of your classes for sure!

I`ve been practising my calligraphy everywere I write and I just recieved a package from the us with my new markers, they are amazing!
Have a fantastic day!
