Make your own, Part Deux



If something appeals to me, I will try it. So, yesterday, I took a deep breath and tried to cut a stencil. Then I painted it on a piece of cardboard. To my utter surprise, I liked my first try, even though I need a much smaller blade so that I can properly cut out the facial features.


Journal No. 3 is nearly finished. I have to attach the pages to the spine; because it's time-consuming, I'll wait until I can sit down without interruption for a while.
