Button Hole Book Binding part 2

Hi everyone,

I made another book yesterday with the book binding skills learned from the workshop I attended on Wednesday on button hole book binding..

For this one I used a 12 x12 chalk board effect paper stack that I bought from the range for Β£3 and some black and white washi tape I bought from Ikea a while back.

I am really enjoying making books just now, although I have a few projects in the pipeline that I am working on which I will share in the coming weeks..

Leather Travel Journal

Hi Everyone!..

I bought a 3 pack of nice notepads at my local supermarket (asda) this morning because I wanted to make a travel journal… I had bought a leather bundle off Amazon about a month ago with this project in mind and also for making a few other upcoming projects too πŸ™‚

I love how it turned out.. the leather was a scrap but was big enough to cover the 3 books which were held in place with elastic hair bands and have enough to have a flap to fold over the front, which i didn’t trim and left it in the shape it was..

I have to say I do love it, but want to make another, this time actually stitching it onto the leather cover rather than with the elastic as I think I would prefer it to be more secure..

I think I will make up my own signatures for the next book too.. that should be fun and I have just the right paper in mind for it too πŸ™‚

I was going to keep this blog post for tomorrow, but I was that excited about making it that I just had to share it with you tonight!

Thanks for popping in

Do what you love and love what you do.

Hi Everyone,

Tonight I made a start with book number two, I was late getting up to my shed, after 9pm but i managed to get the book finished πŸ™‚

I used Diamond Starlight paint on tonight’s book along with tissue tape, fibres, and a wooden heart, if you missed last night’s blog post you can catch up here as these wee books are for a workshop at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh.

mixed media book d

I love how shimmery these starlight paints are!

mixed media book b

I love the mixed fibres and think they look nice against the shimmery background of the book cover..

As always, thanks for popping round, and I will be back in the next couple of days with book number three

Sarah.
