and it's called the children of God.
I'm not a religious person so the title has no deep meaning.....it's also not intended to offend anyone, I just like it.
When I haven't made a book for a while I forget how much I like making them!
This is a piano hinge book.....I like these because they look a lot more complicated than they actually are!
The spine of the book is held together with a painted pencil with a little doll on top......oh yes, the doll thing.....I fully intended NOT to do a doll themed piece when I started this but somewhere along the way I forgot!
Take the pencil out to reveal the accordian folded spine which can be opened out....the spine is made from canvas for extra strength
All the pages are made with Gelli printed papers....I had lots sitting around after experimenting with my Gelli plate....this was a good way to use them up!
I decided to use printed collage images thinking it would be quicker.......this has taken a couple of days of cutting and sticking.....searching for words then more cutting and sticking......need more images....more cutting and sticking........
Tags (also Gelli printed) are tucked into pockets between the pages
