At a library used book sale I had purchased an adorable little Italian cook book that was full of three color wood cuts. I now had the perfect excuse for using the images!! Above you see one of them.
More pages and pockets and hand done papers.
The page on the right was printed on a gelatin plate using a plastic doily as a mask.
I think this is my favorite image from the Italian cookbook- It must be the black and white checks!!
And finally the inside back cover.
- The whole cover spread out . I used a vintage dishcloth with the red single petaled roses for the majority of the cover: and true to form, I misspelled one of the words. If I had listened to the nagging voice at the back of my mind and done a bit of research, had I the time, I would have know that the phonetic spelling of Si Certo is not correct as I spelled it!!! ( Si Cierto is incorrect!!) As it turned out I finished this project at 9 pm on the evening before the departure for the trip and I ended up delivering it at 10 pm!! Done in time but just barely!!
This next journal was made as a gratitude journal for another friend who was having a rough go of life. I felt a Gratitude Journal might help with attaining valuable perspective.
I lined the inside front cover with a deep brown Starbucks Coffee bag as coffee is a favorite beverage.
This return to journal making has inspired me to create some more special books with my sun prints as covers. I will share these pieces with you as soon as I finish a bunch of them! Thanks for visiting !!
