HEART BOOK – This is a small main heart book with two smaller heart books inside.  The smaller books contain rice paper pages with Japanese brush paintings of butterflies.  The paper used on the front of the Heart Book and the for the cover of the small inside books is embellished with Paste Paper. Making Paste Paper reminds me of finger painting as a child as it is essentially putting paint on sturdy paper and then moving it around with serrated-toothed tools to create patterns.  This heart book was entered into an informal competition and took Best of Show.
