So, I am Still Making Books! Of course, it's what I do... but sometimes I do make scrap pages, cards or other crafty stuff....
My Crochet Basket contains a project with a variety of crochet squares. I hope I'll be able to show the finished project soon!
But of course, there are still books! Today I finished a Guest Book, with covers of a very lovely paper, which has been so popular with customers of my shops. It has a collage design, with a French Country feel, with a lovely bird, colourful butterflies and details of letters & envelopes, plus designs such as you'd see on Provencal tiles. I love it - so does everyone else, it seems, as I have sold loads of books with this paper on the covers.
Here's a preview, though these photos were taken in artificial light, so they are not particularly good. At least you can say you saw it here first!
Front cover of the guest book I finished this evening.
It has a fancy binding, in deep aqua-turquoise thread (I'm very keen on this binding style right now!)
Inside the back cover - the covers are lined with a soft aqua Canson art paper. The pages are a gorgeous cream laid text paper, called "Character". There are 32 pages, bound in eight sets of four. This is designed as a guest book, so there are not loads of pages - but it would be equally good as a special sketchbook or a journal. I just love the cover paper and I'm sure it will find a good home soon.
So I hope you enjoyed seeing what has been on my work table today. If you are curious about others' projects, hop over to Julia's blog and see what else is happening!
