Tiny shape stories. Made a simple one page folding book for upcoming after school kid’s classes at the gallery. Painted paper shapes following the “shapes” show in the gallery for April. Model a one page folded x book resulting in 8 small pages. An exploded view… That’s why I find it always pays to have […]
Around here this week, Thursday found me at the gallery making flip books at our fiber arts meeting. Here is my finished flip. 6″x 6″ and flips every which way.
