This is the fabric journal that I did for the group "Color me Silly"....I did the cover, the back page, a two page spread and the sign in pages and then the other 11 artists did their layout. The theme was " to be a woman"....and from there, I left it open to interpretation. This is the book that spent about three months lost in Canadian customs....Boy was it worth the wait...it is wonderful and I am beyond thrilled with it and man, is it big, as in thick!!!! The pages are 9x12 and I made all the pages of timtex covered with muslin and then I made buttonholes on the pages...then each finished page was glued to the back of the prior page....I had no idea how I was going to bind it all together, but I figured when it came back, something would come to me....Little did I know how big this book was going to get!!!! Finally the other day, I decided to look for something to use in the hardware store and I found the perfect solution....in the plumbing section....metal hose clamps! I spray painted them pink with metal paint and then threaded them thru the pages, tightened em up with a butter knife....(too lazy to look for a screwdriver) and wa la! I did cut off the edges and bind them with electricians tape and then I covered the tape with yarn...the edges were too sharp to leave uncovered....I love how it looks...just like a real book. I am showing a picture of the cover and the sign in pages...On the sign in, I had everyones photo in atc size and then each person decorated it and wrote a note or two....The sign in pages I just love! I styled it after a french memory board. The front cover I used all kinds of vintage stuff including a bit from a 40's cookbook that is a riot....I will post more of my treasure later!
