As I was rummaging through my box of collage goodies I
found this Paris city map. The design was actually done
by Jean-Paul Goude. Interesting hat don´t you think?
I wanted to create a piece featuring a hat but I feel this
hat speaks for itself.

Jean-Paul is the designer for many famous name brands.
This latest Chanel ad is running in quite a few magazines
right now. Again, notice the flower hat she is wearing.

He was also the designer for this cover featuring the
singer Björk. Again, notice the hat.

I am linking these hats to the Three Muses.

I am off to do some exercises. This will make
my back feel like new again. Either that or I´ll never
walk again.

All images, except for the map cover, were found on Google.

The Line Up

The Line Up
A colorful array of longstitch books.
All the covers are painted with watercolors and ink.
The spines are sewn onto leather for added stability.

The Red one with a black leather spine.

The Blue one with a brown leather spine.

Bookbinding is always a fun summertime project.
I have many more waiting in the wings.
What have you been working on this summer?

The Summer of Color is ending this week so I have
added my colorful books to their list.
Have a great week!

I have been painting a lot of green papers this week
for bookbinding projects. I used some of one of the
papers to make a quick card with one of my favorite quotes.
