I've been making books!

 I used coptic stitch to bind my little books


 Much sticking of old book pages, splattering of inks, stamping and alphabet rub-ons (again) to decorate my pages which are actually small file folders

 The covers of this one is an old book cover cut up to fit

 This smaller book has corrugated card for the covers and I kept the decoration lighter and  brighter.......a challenge for me!

 Again old book pages, a quick spray of yellow ink, a couple of stamped umbels
 and alphabet rub-ons!


I'd forgotten how much I like to make books......I'll be making more:)

Don't you just love those rub- ons! Gorgeous, gorgeous little books Sue. I reckon that 'Much Inking' and 'Much Splattering' would make great names for villages tucked away in the English countryside, what do you reckon?!! Although 'Much Raining' is more apt for the moment here! X
