I made this book for the One Tiny Thing Book Swap. My partner (Noooitaremybirthday) had many things on her theme list that I thought would work well together. I used her theme of birds, colors, texture, and altered art.
The cover. My first try at coptic binding. I also added some fun fiber dangles.
The first layout. Inside cover and first page. The first page is a pic of Nooo's bird Peanut I borrowed from her blog.
The 2nd spread is the green layout. If you push the gold tab up the bird's head pops out of the egg. This shows it popped up.
The 3rd yellow spread. The bird on the right hand side is Noo's bird that passed away this year, Kitty. Another pic borrowed from her blog.
Next is the purple layout with collage, stamping, ect.
The blue spread. With gessoed eggs in a nest and a bird that I drew.
The magenta spread with stamping and layered backgrounds.
The black and white spread. The soar ticket is held into the book with a swirly paper clip.
The red layout. I used the burned paper bag technique to make the little bird.
The final page and inside cover of the back of the book.
The book is about 2.5 inches tall by 2 inches wide. I had a blast making it!
Thanks Nooo for letting me use the pics you took!
