You will find a mixed media delight in Somerset apprentice: spring 2011 issue as I tell you how to heat alter craft felt and how to make resin paper along with how you can create your own free standing try fold book.




Since July is a multi-layered book




that combines wire with old hand written papers along with resin covered book text, fabrics, ribbons and felts.




in a wabi-sabi style.




this is a quintessential Japanese aesthetic that is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional...




Its a story of textures combined with blurred text.



Since July...

There's a crack in everything
                            That's how the light gets in.
