Mural 1 in progress

It has taken a while to get through the prep. work which included sanding, gesso, & under-drawing, but I have finally begun to make some progress with the Mural #1 (Lewisburg area, looking south). Here's a patched together photo. I can't stand far enough away from the panels to take one picture so I have to correct for some distortion, but this is at least something to look at. Each of the panels in the photo are 44 inches square with two 4 inch spaces separating them.

Blank Recipes Book v. 2.0 is here!

Yes, at long last, I have finally gotten all the pieces together including my fabulous new die-cut tabs. No more sticker sticking (except with the Address Books, that is)! Anyway, it is nice to see this project coming together at long last. The new version of this blank recipe organizer has the fancy tabbed dividers, two-color screen printed covers, and pre-cut everything so I don't have to slave with the box cutter anymore to trim the board. I've grown very tired of doing trim work I know a machine could do in seconds. Yay machines! This is still assembled and the covers printed by yours truly, plus insides printed locally with Portland print shops.
