A Necessary Part...

Necessary_part_cover_1 Several weeks ago my friend, Ronnie taught me how to make a book using a coptic binding.  In order to remember the stitch, I made another book as soon as I got home.  This one will serve as my next visual journal. This is the cover.  I started with a canvas board, which I covered with tissue paper, painted and collaged.

Friendship is...

...laughing at the same things.

...one dessert and two forks.

...really being understood.

...never running out of things to talk about.

...borrowing each other's clothes.

...knowing someone by heart.

...being accepted unconditionally.

...having someone to cheer you on.

...picking up right where you left off.

...there when you need it.
