A play on the phrase "Memento Mori" which is Latin for “Remember death.” , Memento Vivi is a place for remembering life! This book is a journal with edges collaged in small beautiful compositions that inspire, or remember, special times.
You will start by creating your cover utilizing photo transfers on linen with ribbons and hand-stitching. The inside of the journal has collages on all the edges of the papers, using fodder from many sources. We will talk about the principles of composition while creating a set of pages for future journaling.
