I've just finished making my very first book, which I'm going to use for photos, sketches etc for inspiration with my crafting. The covers are made of fabric, lace, scrim, PVA, gesso, acrylic paint and gold rub 'n' buff.




This is a pic of the detail of the stitching and tape on the spine. I used a toning ribbon and perle thread.




This shows the endpapers (from scrapbook stash!) and stitched pages.

I had such fun and mess making this and can't wait to make another!  Grin

I like the texture you got from the lace & scrim. The rub n' buff adds a nice touch.
