It annoys me that I manage to make beautiful stuff on flimsy materials, and yet don't seem to do as well on expensive, better quality materials. I guess because I relax when working on Garb....recycled materials.
Here's the inside, yes it's empty......Don't worry, I'll fill it someday.
Making the book
I only have a few pictures of the process, maybe someday when I get better at bookmaking I'll make a video on how it was done. For now here are a few pictures.
I started off with a pizza box spread out flat, then drew my cover and marked my signature holes.
I made a second outer cover of another pizza box, but didn't give it holes since I wasn't sewing through the spine.
Here is one of the recycled pages. I took two pages with text on them and faced the text sides together, then glued the edges. This resulted in text that can still be slightly seen through the page, but isn't blatantly noticeable.
I left the bottom and top open, takes less glue. You can see how I used text pages and made them usable for drawing, if you don't like text directly in your work.
I went on to paint the covers, emboss, and add ribbons. And also sewing together the book, an enjoyable process.
Enjoy viewing, see you around. :)
