When I looked I have about 7 books at various stages, and another 5 waiting in the wings. This is really useful as you can do several at the same time. Waiting for pages to dry is a pain if you're just sitting there, but if you can pick up another book and work on it, then it's much more fun and very productive.
This was a secret special page (or will be I hope) which now has opening doors/flaps all sewn on the machine for speed. Thank you Laura/DMTV - I hadn't thought of doing this before!
I decided to take that idea and make a wobbly edge to this frame. I love the illustrations in this book, and would like to keep one or two. I can't keep them all or there wouldn't be a book to alter!!
Tearing pages in a graduated way to map flaps.
Folding over a page to make a pocket.
All the pages in these photos have now been gesso'd. I like the strength it adds to torn pages, and I love just glimpses of text underneath.
When it's all dry, and I have another half an hour to spare, I'll crack on to the next stage. Hope you'll join me.
