I'll be updating this topic soon because I'm currently working on a handmade book trade organized by Pam Crawford of Maine. This is my first time participating in a book trade and we were given three months to create.
My subject is called the Paisley Project and will contain approximately 20 pages. The booklet will be mailed out in October 2015, then I will share some of my work here.
The guidelines are not totally textile based, but my version will contain a fabric element to it, along with paper collage.
