This was made for a friend in the US, whom I did a trade with.. The book is made from some fabric I found at a 2nd hand store, it has a panel I painted one day when I was experimenting, which has a piece of acetate in front of it.  It is 80 pages of 110gsm paper, coptic bound Smiley Hopefully they and you like it Cheesy

The bright reds and fuchsias are amazing!  I love how the colored center is framed.  The whole thing is beautiful and there is no way your friend would dislike it.

this is superior work!!
My friend is moving away, and I wanted to make a book for her, and this may just give me the needed inspiration.  Nicely done!

unsay - I'm not sure if they are fusias, it was an acrylic paint doodle, experimenting with washes of acrylics as well as thicker ones.. Alot of texture practice, using various cloths, meshs, and anything else I could find..

Lilliputt- Thanks! Such a nice compliment :DI look forward to seeing your friends book Smiley
