A new book
A book I bought a few weeks ago, Page after Page by Frances Pickering, has really inspired me to have a go at making stitched, paper books,(I know I'm doing too many things at once and we still have to get my MIL resited in a new nursing home whilst doing battle with the Social Services, but that's a whole other story)anyway my idea is to start some pages and covers and next weekend when we are caravanning with Jan and her OH hopefully we can both make a book or two together. This picture is of a cover made from pelmet vilene, coloured with spray inks and a daisy drawn on it, I then painted the petals with bleach to remove the colour and added some more colour with crayon, I used a soldering iron to cut the rough shape. Hopefully next time it is on this blog the book will be finished and the cover stitched.
