Page du jour - coffee bag

As my book arts course moves into Phase 2 - concentration on the final project - my task is to focus on the "lines" themselves (I'll worry about the structure of the eventual "book" later). So instead of making books, I'm making pages, trying out materials and how to make lines (visual "text") with them.
