Starting at the end of the 3 days here are some of the things I made. Those pictured are finished books but I also have some sample patterns for books.
I tried out various things and then settled on making this book. It started off being a black and white book but then gave up on the black!
I started by folding and accordian style spine and cutting out folded shapes.
There was a large printing press which was a bit like an overblown Cuttlebug or Big Shot. So I experimented with putting damped paper through it with a stencil laid on it. It's quite difficult to see the embossing but here it is:
The embossing shows up better on this because as you know I don't clean my stencils and the damp paper refreshed the spray ink that was left on the stencil. So the paper became slightly pink.
Then I cut out some of the shapes using a scalpel.
I stitched the folded pages into the concertina spine. There's lots of photos because I rather like the sculptural effect with the book and the shadows.
Thanks for stopping by.
