I am really on a book making bender at the moment. The excuse of making sketchbooks has long gone – I have to admit I’m just in the mood.
This one is based on the tutorial on Diane Aldred’s blog – very clear and very thorough.
I found some more of the black Asian paper for the cover – but unfortunately that really is the last of it. And I can’t get to the Knitting and Stitching show this year to stock up again – wonder if there will be any at Festival of Quilts?
I love this ribbon binding – it would be wonderful for a book about corsets. I used some of my Pollocked paper inside.
Today’s texture photo is another shot of the late lilac tree - definitely manipulated fabric of some kind – perhaps clusters of gathered sheers? Held down by French knots, of course.
