Rebinding my Moleskin
After spending several days experimenting with the moleskin's thin paper, I decided I couldn't make that paper work. Then it was a matter of getting over my fear of taking apart the moleskin. Once I conquered that fear, I turned to my Husband and Sputnik and said, "I'm taking this moleskin apart, wish me luck!"
I then spent the rest of the day cutting watercolor 140lb paper and drawing paper down to size for my signature to replace the thin paper.
Then came the fun part of collaging the cover inside and out. I used pages from a Japanese paperback, colored washi, origami paper, and word definitions from an old dictionary. I might add a title and a line drawing to the outside cover.
The word on the front cover is "absolve" and on the back cover, "absorb." My project theme is "adhere to me". In my mind, it's all coming together.
