This past week I attended a two day class at Art Is You in Petaluma, CA. The class was taught by the talented Sharon Payne Bolton. It was probably the best class I've ever attended! Below is a picture of the two books I made...
We made these chunky books with lots of three dimensional and embedded/inlaid objects. The pages of the book are 1/8" thick chipboard. I'll show you pictures of each of the pages below. This first book is 3" x 4"
Here are pictures from my smaller book, 2" x 3".
|The book on the right has a thick glass lens embedded in the cover.|
Each page was painted over in beeswax - I did that part after I got home.
|The page on the left is actually a piece of inlaid glass and|
the page on the right has an inlaid brass locker tag.
|The page on the right has an inlaid slide.|
|Another inlaid brass locker tag on the left.|
|Glass slide inlaid on the left and a coin holder on the right.|
|I love the doll leg on the right.|
|Sharon taught us the coptic binding method.|
