Heidi Swapp Book Structure

 I took this #bookbinding course from @heidiswapp to learn a new #bookarts structure. Her book was a #memorybook made with #decorativepaper of different lengths. I made mine with my #vwbus #sticker old #watercolor #paintings and #pastepaper my book pages are all the same length and blank so that I can use it for a #sketchbook @ San Diego, California
