Embellished Book




No challenge for the final lesson of the ESE course but a suggestion to make an 'item', so bull by the horns and I had a go at a book, the cover and pages went well but - how to put it together - I used eyelets to thread the cord thro on each page but I think perhaps the fabric is too soft to hold them so no rough treatment, it'll never grow up to be a library book!!! The pictures show the book open and the three other pages; the reverse side of the embellished page has an Eleanor Roosevelt qoute, ( for no other reason than I like them) - I suppose the theme of the book is 'Colour'. Forgot to add that the pictures on the pages are printed onto cotton inkjet fabric sheets that Connie sent to me.

Love your book! Thanks for stopping by my blog also. I enjoyed your humor about how the book will not grow up to be a library book.
