Today I took delivery of some old doors to replace the horrible modern ones in our house.........
they came with these hinges and keyhole surrounds which I decided were not really usable for the doors but they are great mixed media pieces so they now live in my studio:)
I decided to have a bit of a play......not made a book in ages so used one of the hinges to make one!
Watercolour paper for the pages......lots of ink and paint to age them
a fun "rusted" octopus for the front!
And its guilty secret??
Well, it has a design fault! While it looks nice sitting on a shelf or held in your hand.........it doesn't close all the way and it doesn't open very far either!!!
