Bind it All - Luke's Book

You can see close up photos of the embossing and painting here where the pictures are brighter



I have spent the afternoon assembling the book I have been making for Luke's Japanese grandparents.

It is a 'year' book and contains photos of what he has been up to each month.

The pages are nothing like the cover - they are bright and colourful and fun.

As the year is not up - I have left blank pages for more photos to come.

It has definitely been a learning curve and very frustrating at times punching the holes in the right places etc - but now its finished its been fun.

I also learned quite a lot of what 'not to do' - so hopefully as I make more I should get better at it.



This Thursday
its all about curves - I think the curves on these book covers qualify.
