The shapes on the cover are grundboard which was easy to cut with my paper dedicated rotary cutter. I added beads-size 8- to the stitching as I bound the book.
The lining is a printed tissue that a friend gave me. She bought it at an Estate Sale of a Portland artist. The page is construction paper with acrylic paint on it. The paint is thick enough to draw a comb-one from the hardware store for texturing walls-through it to create a pattern.
