I hope you have all had a good weekend and have battened down the hatches ready for this pending storm. I have shut the Girls in so that they don't get blown away!
I want to share with you a little project I have been working on. Ever since I made THIS book with Neil Burley I have wanted to make another journal type book. So here it is....
I bought some leather from Ebay, cut it to size and rounded the corners. Then I adhered some paper to the inside. I cut out some watercolour paper, folded it, marked out the holes in both the paper and leather and then sewed the paper signatures to the cover using waxed linen thread.
The inside paper was bought for me by a non-crafting friend. Gorgeous isn't it? It has a lovely shimmer to it.
Here are the inside of each signature of paper.
At the end I threaded some leather cord to tie the book closed.
I have not used my book yet but I am sure I soon will. This is on I am DEFINITELY keeping!
Have a good week everyone and I truly hope the storm St Jude soon passes without too much upheaval for you all.
