The Playful Artist’s Book with Julie Chen – Day 6
I spent a chunk of time today covering my hexagonal tray.
To help me wrap the bookcloth around the bottom of the box, I propped it up on a brick. It was the perfect size and height.
Julie advised me on how to address gluing the corners, using nifty snips and triangles.
From her mouth to my brain – I messed it up, even after watching her demonstrate it. Even after taking pictures of her demo and looking at them a gazillion times. I hate when that happens. Luckily, you can’t see the error because it’s so teeny.
Now I just need to put in the divider and cover the bottom with bookcloth.
Next, I spent a couple of hours in front of the dry mount press working on my game cards. I had typed them all up on the computer and printed them out. Then I used my pressure printed paper for the backside of the cards and laminated them together. Lastly, I cut them down to size.
This is really starting to look like a game now!
Lastly, I carved two stamps – one a small trash can and one a small question mark. These will be used for marking off game spaces on my board.
“Measure twice, ask Julie, cut once.”
“Don’t creep on my space.”
