Coptic Stitch

I finally finished my large sketchbook (10 x 11.5 inches). I have been afraid of doing the Coptic stitch and talked to my friend Stephen about it every time I saw him, I looked at videos and read directions over and over. I was so proud when I finished it I showed him and he gave me his stamp of approval.

The nice thing about the book is it is made from materials that were given to me by artist friends. Davey Board: Kathy Przekopp, Cover paper: Doris Bertch, Craft paper: Diane DeMers Chen, Watercolor paper: Jennise Ashley and Francesca Albini. Thank you friends. I also used gesso on some old watercolor paintings for paper.
