Book Arts Tuesday-Starting a New Spirit Book
Here are some of the miniature St. Bridget's crosses I've made for the pages of the book. It's a simplified version made with paper. Traditional ones are made from rushes. I think I have mentioned how faulty my math can be. I am planning for 6 sections in the book with 8 pages in each. My first round of math led me to say that I needed to make 48 crosses. For some strange reason, I decided that was wrong and redid the math to come up with the number 256 (24 x 8) for who knows what reason. Thankfully I realized my original calculation was correct before I continued on past 48.
Upcoming posts this week will feature progress on the book and directions for how to make your own simplified St. Bridget's cross out of paper.
