A little handmade book made from paper and assorted bits and bobs, inspired by nature. I finally got the courage up to bind this at the weekend Cheesy





The pages






And as if there weren't enough photos of this already Roll Eyes


The pages were made by assembling lots of torn mixed paper to make a large sheet, which I then tore up to make the pages. Then I collaged some more, scribbled and stitched on them a bit until I was happy it had the feel I wanted.

I'm so pleased I managed to bind it and it worked! Cheesy

I whole-heartedly agree with all of the above. =)
What are you planning to use it for or will it stay as it is?

Thank you!

BirdBones, it will stay as it is. I did experiment with giving it roots, but it didn't seem to want them...at least not the ones I made for it! Cheesy

This is terrific!
I don't think it needs anything else (like words or drawings). I think it speaks for itself!
