I've been making so many chunky book pages, I decided to post them all in this thread rather than start separate threads for all of them. 

____________________________________________


I made this chunky book page for a swap on another site.  A chunky book page is generally small (4x4 inches or so), and is made on a heavy base (140 pound watercolor paper or matboard).  Then you add fibers, beads and whatnot, making it "chunky."  I haven't seen many of them on Craftster. 

I made this one for someone who wanted pages in the theme of "vintage lingerie."  She wanted pretty and frilly pages that she can join by the corners and make into a wall hanging for her bedroom.



The backs of chunky pages are generally decorated, but not as much of the front.  Here's the back of the page above:



It's got my name and the date, and the title of the page, and some bits and bobs as decoration.

I love this page, and I really, really don't want to give it away.  I want to keep it for myself!!!!  Smiley

That's just beautiful!
I vote you keep this one and make her another one to send.
I couldn't bear to part with it either.
You always do such beautiful work.

Do I sense a new swap coming on?  Wink

Thanks y'all!  I'd LOVE to host a Craftster chunky book page swap, if there is enough interest.  Is there?  I started a thread to discuss:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218851.new#new

It is in the public domain, and it is a copy -- but I don't remember where I got it!  If I had to guess, I'd guess the flickr collage image group, but I'm just not sure.
