I completely forgot about this week’s theme while I was making my books. So it’s just dumb luck that I created something that actually fits in with “Lost.” I think I’ll call it “Little Lost Pigeon.” I ended up making two books–a Turkish fold and a small snake book that fits inside it.
The Turkish fold was actually easier to make than I thought it would be. For the inside I used some cheap cardstock I have hanging around. I know now that I probably should have used something thinner to make the folding easier, but I like the sturdiness the cardstock provides.
The snake book was a little difficult because I made it so small. The finished, closed size is one square inch. This did make the measuring easy though. I used a magazine page to make the snake book’s inside pages and a magazine cover to make the covers. Obviously, those materials were already sitting around waiting for me. All I had to do was cut them up, glue them closer together, and draw on them. Specifically, I drew bird footprints wandering around lost on the pages.
What I’m most happy about is that my measuring skills are much better than what I was exhibiting in class. This seems small, but I was a little concerned, so I was happy to see improvement. On to the next project!
