The ABCs of Creativity: Book-in-a-Day Wk11

Title: The ABCs of Creativity
Structure: Star Book
Dimensions: 2 916 x 2 916

Book 11 is done and done! Again, I started this book late in the day, but I had been thinking and freewriting about the topic all morning. I'm working on a webinar series that I'll be calling, The ABCs of Creativity and so this book was kind of a brainstorming session for the larger idea. 

I went with the star structure because I wanted the themes of creativity (as I see them) to be exposed a few at a time and with a little bit of a surprise element. 

Here's the video of my process: 

The one thing I'm not quite happy about (after the fact) was that I used the origami side of the papers. I should have flipped the pages and used the pochoir sides for the words and the origami for the back. Alas, these are the things that come up after the book is made and you have a chance to look at them.

I did like the weight of the origami papers. They folded nicely and accepted the stamps easily. I'd love to use some of those with my gelli plate just to see how they take the ink/paint. 

For some reason I don't have a lot to say about this book. It's not my favorite and I can't quite figure out why, but I like the topic/content and can't wait to share more with you about the ABCs of Creativity!!

As always, I'm looking forward to what next week brings. If you're watching the videos, I'm honored! If you're making the books, I'm intrigued, so please post them to the flickr group or on the Giving Hands Creative Community site.
