Thoughts on Book Arts

TJ Goerlitz at the Board ShearsThere is a difference between not having a plan and having a plan that you know needs to be loose enough to power through the initial frustrating stages of a project.

Create Mixed Media is running a series of three posts on the book arts where I’ve written about this and more.  Click here to read the first one about my experience at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts where I have spent the majority of my creative time over the last year and a half.

For those lucky enough to be in the area, check out the book center’s Adult Workshops schedule and let me know if you’ll be around.  Not only do I love the book arts, I love to connect with “online” friends in real life!

And that photo above?  Whoa Nellie!  That is one of the smaller pairs of board shears at the center.  I was so scared of those babies in the beginning but now I can cut with them like they’re normal scissors.
