finished

I have finished the last of the twelve pages of this sketchbook signature. The book will be bound at the top and open like a calendar. acrylic, stencil, rubber stamps, collage

It's a two paged spread.

The last page came out icky so I painted over it with white and stenciled the letters and numbers.

I really like how you used the calendar format .... It's an elongated layout you don't see too often. Wonderful textures and layers of color ... I love books for their touch ability and tactile nature .... Better than under glass in a frame :)

I really like the 2 page spread; calendar-ish look of this.
And I always enjoy enlarging and discovering all the textures, etc.

Pretty cool. Looks like you did have fun doing this and its no doubt even better in person. We know the camera doesnt pick up all the texture and coloring.

It would be lovely to hold this and feel the textures. An enjoyable project for you!

You are so good at book binding and your pages all delight the eye!
So glad you are doing this.
Must enlarge and see photos larger as i want to see all the details.
;-)) that kitty photo on side bar is precious too.

You always inspire me to want to make a book. I don't know what's stopping me. I think the binding part!

This is really beautiful. The 2 page spread reminds me of illuminated journals.
