I am doing a hand-bound books using the stitch over ribbon method for both my Weight Loss Surgery journey and for our Handfasting
So far I only really have stuff done for the WLS book, I need to start working on the Handfasting one soon.

I have either been prepping pages, studying/buying art journal books or actively working on pages every day this month
I have decided to do a weight loss surgery Journal using “stitch over ribbon” bookbinding with Bristol and watercolor paper and some bookboards from an old light weight journal and then binding it with cloth measuring tape ribbon like the one below (mine is 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 in)
I may also do one on our Handfasting, not sure.
(sorry my camera phone is not great, going to scan a bunch of work this month)
I am learning what I can and cant do with bristol paper which I have never used before, it looks like I will be investing some money in 140# watercolor paper and learning about gessoing bristol paper, It should be a learning experiment.
I have also been doing Zentangles and some work in the new journal..
