The completed books. I absolutely love making books and I try to make them as perfect as possible. I used waxed Irish linen thread to stitch the pine and have a huge array of colors. On one of the books , I chose a thread which turned out to look wimpy and pathetic. That will be my new plant journal.
Front and back of journal. You can chose which.
This seems to be the most popular. The white paint had mica in it and the book just glows. I have another half sheet so I can make another one just like it.
This book was made with the "chrysanthemum" tool made by Marcella's brother.
That horrible looking stitching (DON"T LOOK!!) made it mine. I sell these sketchbooks for $45. and believe me when I tell you it's the best mixed media paper you can get. I do a lot of watercolors in these sketchbooks. If you are interested in one, use the contact form below.
I think the blue and mica is my favourite, the spots are very cheery too!ReplyDelete
