|Rose signature wraps on alternate signatures. The paper throughout is vintage (1970s) Abbey Mills in Slate, a lovely dove grey, really ususual, and a perfect 115gsm weight. Perfect for writing or drawing, strong enough for collage.|
Displaying the whole book - A5 size. I used an Anna Griffin scrapbooking paper for the covers and signature wraps. On the cover, I've collaged a vintage photograph, a wine label and cut out a flower (Tim Holtz's 'Tattered Florals' die) which I curled over my fingers to shape the petals. I added dimension and supported the petals with silicone glue.
I've also added photo corners, Broderie Anglais lace and die cut borders. And finished off with a couple of vintage buttons.
Hope you like this! And if you want to have a try yourself, I have a tutorial (with photos and my own hand-drawn illustrations) in my Etsy shop. I've also listed the journal.
