Het in elkaar zetten van het boek neemt zo veel tijd in beslag omdat ik steeds iets zoek om de pagina's met elkaar te laten corresponderen d.m.v. het herhalen van een vorm of een kleur.
I always call my journals MAM (Mary Ann Moss) journals, because she invented them, but the official name is Remains of the Day journal. Number 4 started with green and natural colours, but soon the flowers, red/pink and birds found their way in. It isn't finished yet, but I already sewed the signatures so that I could scan them more easily.
The preparing of the book takes so long because I'm always looking for matching pages through repeating patterns or colours.
