The Sea book is complete!
My book is now complete! This is a front view.
Here is the open book. My apologies for the photograph here. It looks a little odd sloping to one side, but that was my fault. The book was standing upright, you can just see the odd angle of the horizon. I have shown this photograph merely because it gives an indication of the wealth of textures there are amongst these lovely pages.
The inside of the front cover.
The inside of the back cover. Thanks everyone who sent me a page.
The book is designed to open right out, as you can see here, fanning the pages out and making them easier to display. The spine is woven and beaded. I used sticks as uprights and used blue, green, purple and grey-blue ribbon to weave in and out making the structure more solid.
My next challenge will be to get a shelf for my workroom so I can display all my three-dimensional pieces out of direct sunlight.
Thanks Ruth. I really loved taking part in this project.
