Happy Independence Day to everyone
in the U.S.! Celebrating with a photo of
my dear old quilted flag wall-hanging, and
Here are additional photos of Book Structures
to share for the T-Tuesday blog hop. I think I
have acquired a new obsession!
A flag book, which is a structure based
on the accordion fold binding. Tags -
or flags - are adhered to the accordion
binding in alternating rows. This book was
completely inspired by the beautifully patterned
paper that had been provided by the instructor.
There were so many to choose from, it
was hard to decide. But I do love a wonderful
black and white theme once in a while.
From scraps of the patterned paper, I cut out
some of the circles and adhered them to the
tags/flags. Alternating black and white flags
further enhanced the theme. Haven't decided
if I will add text. I am rather afraid to
'mess it up!'
Yes, that's my Santa mug with coffee.
Don't you enjoy Santa year-round?!
This is another folded structure. The way the
patterned papers are cut and woven together
creates a 'secret compartment' that makes a
nice place to add a greeting or secret journaling.
It looks more complicated than it is. The papers
I used are 'two-sided' which makes it even
more deceiving/confusing. And enough
time has passed that I'm not sure
I can figure out how to do make
another. But it's really clever!
A pamphlet stitch booklet with an
envelope flap cover. The rose design was
cut from another drawing I had made and
adhered to the cover.
An envelope book. The cover collage was
inspired by the brightly colored envelopes
that the instructor provided.
It's an accordion book, with the openings of
the envelopes on the inside, into which I placed
brightly colored card stock tags cut into various shapes.
I especially like the profile in pink.
From the back, you can see that the book is
constructed by simply gluing the envelope
flaps to the back of the next envelope.
Stop by for T-Tuesday and see what
my blogger friends are up to. I am
entertaining visiting family this week, so I
will probably be late visiting everyone. I am
having fun with the grandchildren
and we're having art time together!
