The Beach Cottage studio is a mess, with Book Parts laying around everwhere:
|These are some of the patterns I am going to make fabric out of...works for Books, too!|
My first Book was okay, but not exactly even from front to back cover:
|This Mango image is meant to be printed on Linen and framed under glass...time to get it done, now that I see it again. It took me weeks and weeks to create this image - and I just forgot about it!|
Living at the Beach, I'm partial to Coastal and underwater images...and my all-time favorites are images of Coral Branches and Sea Fans. So I designed the following image over a year ago, and it was the first one I experimented with by having Spoonflower print it up for me:
|Gluing up the Book Covers is agonizing. Pure T. But I am pleased with the finished look.|
Once I finally got happy with the front and back Book Covers, I was off to the races, and started assembling:
|Don't you think this would make beautiful fabric for a Lula Belle Handbag?? Or Wallpaper for a Beach Cottage accent wall?? Or how about Gift Wrap?? I started with the Coral image, then put it in repeat with other components to make the pages. You can visit my post on making a Pattern Repeat to see how to do this.|
The inside pages are lined and blank, meant for journaling or note jots:
And, here is the back cover:
Next up, the Pomegranate Book - but that will be after I go see Baby Blakely again.
I think it's time to get the sewing machine cranked up and Sew "Stuff" to these Book Covers; and layer them up - what do you think?
