Happily I was lucky enough to come across one a little while later at a Vintage Fair. I couldn't believe my luck and it was of one of the places in which I spent my holidays as a child. The Lake District in Cumbria.
Since my first post on the subject I have been wanting to make a mini concertina book and this week at the back of one of my drawers I came across a strip of heavy watercolour paper leftover from an old project which was ideal. So I got to work and this is the result.
I used leftover papers that have images of ink and paint from cleaning off stamps and brushes. I just love the random marks you can get, hence the name of my little book, 'Serendipity'.
The cover is made from a brown tag which is stamped with a script stamp and scrunched, opened up and scrunched again until it feels like fabric. I then painted it with some acrylic wax to seal the surface, then added a metal eyelet and some twine.
I am really pleased with the way it turned out and hope to make more in the future.
I am linking this post to WOYWW as this is what has been on my desk these past few days. To see other peoples desks from around the world click on the button in the side-bar and take a look.
