Thank you all for your kind comments on my last post. I hope to get round and visit more of your blogs soon.
In order to catch up with the weeks when I've not made a notebook I have done a big batch over the last few days. They are all very simple. Hope to be more creative with future ones
Number 33 has a postcard cover of lake Garda sent to me this summer. Cotton rag paper insides.
Number 34 is a mixed media piece. I was inspired to do this having seen the work on threadnoodle's blog. Thank you Iz. The notebook has plain paper and is 1.5 x2 inches.
Number 35 has a cover made from a small part of a mixed media piece I made having used the great tutorial that Robenmarie had published in the May/June issue of Somerset Studio. the pages are cotton rag paper. It measures 1.75 x 3 inches.
Number 36 is a photograph a friend took and gave to me to use. I have sanded it, added gesso and various paints. It has plain paper pages.
Number 37 is half of a square cut folder that has been covered on the front with a mixture of papers, decorative tape, ribbon and die cuts.
The back has a postcard that has had similar treatment to the photograph above.
Number 38 is another small mixed media without a cord this time. Plain paper pages and measures 1.75 x 2.25 inches.
Number 39 is a card that my American pen friend sent to me. We have been pen friends for a very long time. I save Mary's cards but this one seemed ideal to make into a notebook. It has folded cotton rag paper pages.
The back tells you all about who made the piece of work.
Finally a rose taken when I went for a walk in the grounds of Blenheim palace recently. Will share more of that next time.
