I think that the last fortnight I make nothing but books. And as soon as I finish the last, someone calls and needs " urgently" another book. Journals, notebooks, sketchbooks,recipe books - name it and I am sure I have one in my portfolio! I don' t complain cause I love making books, but Christmas is almost around the corner and I haven't even started Shimmelle's journal , no art journaling, nothing!

So, what am I going to show you today? Books!

These are 6 x 8 inches and are ment for everyday use. Their covers are somehow "flat" (not many 3D decorations) in order to be thrown in a woman's handbag without special handling. The inside pages are stamped and heat embossed as usual.

In the first one I embossed a metal plate with a Tim Holtz die and used alcohol inks to color it.



For the next two I had a free reign, and you know what happens when you give a free reign to the bookmaker... The covers are a mixed media project by themselves. Sprays, inks, pastes, embossing, collage and a touch of Inka-gold. Laquer and fixative to stabilise the color and that's it - two books I really enjoyed!



That's it for now, I will come back with more books in my next post (you thought you will get away-Ha!)
