New Chunky Book





I haven't made a book in quite a while but I always have a drawer full of pieces that I can put in. This book is a bigger one, 11 x 12, and I had fun making the file folder pockets. I have a great desire to use a coptic stitch to sew these books but I chickened out on this one and decided to just use the Rubicoil. I love the Rubicoil because I can tie on all sorts of fibers. It was fun!

Martha, Martha, Martha--LOVE IT!! My favorite are the folders with all of the hidden treasures--and those paintings--ahhh--should be on a wall--the color just explodes!!

Love this!!! Thanks for sharing it.

Marvelous!! Very inspiring. I'm just learning about making backgrounds and have some bits and pieces piled up. Maybe I'll do something in a book, too. And I agree, sometimes just making them is all it's about... no particular use in mind.

LOve the book, and thanks for showing how you add your pages... I had tried this before and punched the art, and rendered it unusable. Will definitely use the tabs in the future. Also a great way to store your drawings and paintings until you decide what to do with it. Bravo!!!

What a beautiful book and such great ideas. I love your philosophy of doing it just because you enjoy it. I get fed up of being asked about my craft work "What's it for" Thanks so much for sharing.
