Last Saturday I went to Sarahs.....THE ART OF MOODLING......metal book workshop at PADDYS STAMPING PLACE. I had a fab day of just playing around with metal working tools and inks and paints.
This is the front of my book.........we had small Beatrix Potter books to cover.........I had Jeremy Fisher but ended up with an owl on the front!
This is the back, I made a mistake with the lettering and ended up with a gap between the first T and the W, oh well!!
I really liked the cogs and wheels effect.........this was done by placing Tims cogs and sprockets under the metal and rubbing over to get the impression.
This is inside the front cover of my book, I coloured it with a little black paint, again a happy accident as some paint oozed over from the front so I just spread it around! I then added stamped cogs......by HOME IMPRESSIONS....to carry on the theme from the covers.
I have decided that I am going to go with the Jeremy Fishery-ness of the book and enhance the pages! So here I've added some trailing leaves, a little damp house and some buttercups!
