Handmade Book, Recycled Book

Two books for gifts
Handmade book - the pages were from vintage books, envelopes, music etc which I coloured with paint. I've collaged a plain thin piece of paper to each page so that it can be used for writing in. I used a zutter binder to make the holes and attach the wire.




Recycled Book, a new book from an old one. The cover was printed on t-shirt transfer paper and transferred onto fabric, which went quick thick and shiny [probably kept the iron on too long], but I liked the effect. I embellished it with a bit of stitchery and beads.
I collaged each page with art work, found papers, printed papers etc

This image below shows most of the pages, you'll have to click on it to see it more clearly.
