yet another booklet
I will not be making more like this one as I only had two ready-made leporello's or accordions. From now on I will be making my own! with the help of this wonderful book I bought (one year ago? I forgot to write the date of receipt in it, have I posted about it? I can't remember........it's awful how much I forget these days).
Doesn't matter, the book is here chock-a-block with seemingly easy to follow instructions on how to construct several types of books, hurray. As I mentioned in my last post, I have been wanting to make books for a long time.....just didn't quite manage before - apart from the couple I made as a child. That must have been why I bought Esther K. Smith's one online
|There is truth to be found amid the teabags;|
I drink copious amounts of black tea with raw milk a day; we buy the raw milk from a local farmer who also makes raw-milk-cheeses, otherwise known as farmer's cheese.
hope this isn't too boring, but for the sake of registering as much as possible I am showing all the pages.....plain prints using wall-paper glue, fixing them as smoothly as possible, just to see what an actual printed book might look like; the quality of the colours is rather abominable due to printer issues
|I do like this image of them lying side by side|
|meanwhile I am having fun drawing the critters, well wouldn't you with such patient and playful models?|

whereas in my previous post I had given the link to the original post with the story....anyhow, thx for your support....and feedback, this means so much to me. I think I'm finally finding the sweet spot where words and images match and complement each other
oh I know that so well Liz, how I can (for years!) say I want to be doing something, but don't get round to actually doing it....my husband says: if you're not doing it now, you might not really want to....
So my question to you is: do you really want to, and if the answer is YES, what's holding you back? (if no, well, there you have it) I do hope I'm not being too forward here Liz, but sometimes the right question helps one along.....Xx
And then there's this: inertia ... the simple fear of getting started ... and the mind-sucking reality of screens (phones, computers, TVs ... all of them)
So thank you for helping me along ... at least I can't say I didn't give it a thought ... now, what am I to do with it?
I'm sure you have some tricks of your own up your sleeve and who knows we'll soon see a book born of your hands soon, sending love Xx namasté
