Those yarns are just beautiful.  And I think plying the mohair was worth stress -- it looks amazing.

Ooh, that's a good idea -- I think I'll aim for that too. Smiley

Nice work!

How soft are the erasers that you carve into?

I haven't had time to spin anything since July, and this yarn had been sitting on my wheel half done until yesterday.  One of my resolutions was to make more time for spinning, so I started by finishing it off.

It's not technically perfect, but it's exactly what I want for the project I have in mind. Smiley

It's 75 grams of a merino/silk blend, and has a beautiful sheen and softness.

Thanks for the compliments. Smiley

I'm a printmaking student and took an Artist's Books class this year where I learned the bookmaking stuff.  I'd love to do some more technical learning though -- the class was geared more towards ideas and ways of expression than to technique.

The paper on the last two books is Japanese chiyogami paper -- it's available in several art shops here in Australia in big sheets.  It costs a pretty penny, but it's worth every cent...

I went on a book making binge this Christmas -- I needed relatively quick gifts, and I wanted to get some practice in.

Small concertina photo albums that can hold about eight 4"x6" photos -- these can be carried around as a book, but they also stand upright when opened out, so the photos can be displayed.  The cover papers from these two were old linocut prints on cartridge paper (I screenprinted the bird on the first one), and I also made one with chiyogami cherry blossom paper.

This is similar, but is smaller and in notebook version... I made two of these for my nephews, and screenprinted some animal illustrations on the inside covers.

Another notebook, with sewn signatures instead of a concertina layout, covered with chiyogami paper:

And finally, a large Chicago-screw-bound photo album for my mother-in-common-law, covered with cherry blossom chiyogami paper.  Her sister is dying from a rapidly degenerative form of motor neurone disease, so we wanted to give her something special.  My partner took really nice photos of everyone in the family, and we put them all in the album.

The other on this project was my partner -- while I took care of all the visual stuff, he did all the sound and music, and is a lot more talented than he thinks he is. Smiley

I actually wasn't planning on doing any media subjects next year, as all the animation subjects that I wanted to do clashed with my compulsory printmaking subjects, but the media arts staff who assessed me offered to put me in a special project class, just so that I could keep doing stuff.  It's one of those advanced classes where you don't actually have class -- you just work on your project, and meet up with your lecturer and other students for group feedback sessions.  I'm looking forward to it!

19  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / annalaura in "The Age"! on: December 06, 2006 02:18:56 PM
I was reading The Age newspaper in a caf on Saturday and noticed a little blurb about annalaura and one of her lady pins!  It was very exciting and inspiring to see a Craftster in a major newspaper. Smiley

These are gorgeous.  I particularly love the arch and the piano (I'm glad your flash wasn't working -- it's more interesting this way!)
