copper water color heart book

I have wanted to teach a water color class where we do wee on the spot watercolors in a handmade  created   journal to go with the water colors . Bisbee  is the perfect place to do a walking water color class. The town  is so filled with inspirational  vignettes everywhere you go.
   Today I made the prototype for the journal.  Bisbee was a copper mining  town so  I made the book cover by covering 2 wooden hand carved hearts with  hammered copper. I then made  wee  heart shaped  page signatures  for the inside. It was fun . Now to do the water colors for  the inside and it will be ready to put on the Blisbee class schedule.
