Handbound Book

A friend of mine loves the color pink,,,so of course, I made her a pink book.


I made the paste paper with a metallic acrylic paint and stamped a big swirl stamp into the wet paint which created a negative impression. I did a little mark making and spritzing on the front.
The quote is from Quietfire Design.






The edges of the book block have been speckled with black ink and two black satin ribbons were attached at the spine which she can use to mark her page.
