Paul Klee woke up one day
And took a line for a walk
They went for miles, saw many sights
But didn’t stop to talk
A line, said Paul, is a very fine friend
It takes you here and there
In and out and over the fence
You never can tell where.
Paul Klee was the line's best friend.
He handled her with care.
You can tell that the line loved Paul
They were a handsome pair.
They sang a song as they went along
Of yellow, blue and green
Of red, purple, black and orange
And everything in between.
Paul Klee took a walk one day
With his old friend the line
She was Paul’s very dear friend
And I’d like to make her mine.

At the end of a marbling session with my niece, Anne, a couple years ago I took the pots of leftover acrylic paint and did a wash on one side of a piece of Arches text wove paper and then splatted paint on the other and let it drip. Then I made it into momigami by coating it with konnyaku and kneading it. THEN I cut it up and made it into pages which I bound using Cherri Moote's directions for Secret Belgian Binding.
