This one pictured here is the latest book that I made & is my Art healing journal. I am filling the journal with art works & things that I love. Tea Pots, Tea cups & all things tea ☺These two little books where inspired by a matchbox zine challenge I read about & entered on the web. The little brown book at the front is the matchbox zine that I made for the challenge, & it is fill with tiny photos of all the embroideries & work I have done over the years. It also has some embroidery, both machine & hand inside it, & I have also added samples of experiments that I have documented. The book measures 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches
This book is a type of pamphlet binding & has been beaded for extra interest.
This book is also a pamphlet bound book. But I have needle weaved each of the booklets together to create a fuller book. The cover is made from pressed paper clay, that I pressed onto a Chantilly lace rubbing plate.
This book shows both Coptic & Celtic binding. Each of the signatures in this book are coloured & the book is used to keep a record of everything I have ever tried or used in both textiles & paper craft.
I hope to add more books in the future & will be adding them to my etsy shop, so keep watching this space.
