More Japanese Paper Journals and Sunshine

Spent time dying more Kozo and Tengucho
papers yesterday. Designed a new journal, added watercolors
 and the dyed papers to come up with these
journal covers.


Decided to photograph them before they were glazed.
That way you can see the vibrant colors better.
Glazed and bound.
By the way , the weather is now hot and sunny and plants are back outside.
I guess our little snowstorm was just a quirk.
You will find me in the garden either 
painting or weeding!!!!
