As I have mentioned, I still have a handful of miniature book orders to finish but after having one returned it has made it really difficult for me to get going on them again. Silly I know, but I'm paranoid that the recipients won't like them, I've have binned two or three ideas (literally, in one case) and I've been reluctant to share the ones I have finished on here.
But I have decided to bite the bullet... so here goes! Book number 45 is for Joanna who wanted something based on the art work that has inspired this project.
So I have combined images of phone boxes, my piece of work "Regeneration" and pictures of the work in situ, together with some of the lace used in the work and a copy of my artist's statement, all in a simple stitched book.
Book number 46 is titled "Madonna" and I have used several images of the Madonna, painted in an icon style combined with lots of gold.
The book is a simple stitched book but I have tried to model the cover on a triptych made in three parts.
Let's just hope the recipients like them this time!
If you are still waiting for your book.. they are on their way but it might be another week or so as I really do need to get myself organised for Open Studios. But I do aim to get all the current book orders done by the end of this month. And talking about Open Studios... my house is open:
14th & 15th July and 21st & 22nd July
11am until 6 pm.

Would love to see you because something else I get paranoid about is that no-one will turn up!
