I promised to show you some more of the books I made the last days.
The one that follows is a recipe book - hard to understand huh?- and is a commission. All the inside pages were decorated with kitchen-related stamps, painted with inktense pencils, but I did not shoot them. Instead I have sampled some flourishes because I like their vivid colors - I do not have kitchen related stamps for a 30 pages book, at least not yet. But do not despair -I always have a pending order for stamps!
Now this one is my favorite journal for 2011. Believe it or not , it was supposed to be the recipe book when I cut the chipboard covers. But I was a bit tired of the all these commissions with their bright papers and flowers and such, so I stepped a bit out of the path and I came up with this. It is a book that I really like - with blank pages ready to be filled, and a "strong" , meaningfull cover.
Don't mistake me - I love making merry books with fancy paper covers, with every other page stamped and colored. I love even more that they inspire people to write to them, journal etc, but I wouldn't know what to do with them myself. Never been really good in diary keeping. I prefer art journaling and this needs empty space.
