High Springs Fall Festival

Saturday was the Fall Festival for High Springs.
  The High Springs Theater had an all day Flea Market.

 This is a tour of our quaint town.

At one time this was a tea house and then an antique shop.

Madhatters is a great little dinning establishment with
all types of artist endeavors and confections to enjoy.

There was even a car show.  Can you see me careening down the highway in this number?

The Brown Paper Bag gets a Makeover

Believe it or not.  This is made from a brown paper bag.  I used the instruction from Cloth Paper Scissors magazine.  Looks just like leather.

First wrinkle tha paper bag and paint it brown.  Then add flexible chipboard letters called grunge board, images etc.  These are made by Tim Holtz.  Use Temtex to make the book cover strong but flexible.

The most fun was learning how to do book binding.  There are several signatures with approximately 3 sheets per signature.

All the pages have been specially designed either using stencils, paint or stitching on fabric samples.

The book has been closed with an old macrame necklace and the feather came from Lucy the rooster.
