the big book

By spotogspindel | October 17, 2014

“I like big books, and I cannot lie… trall-la-la-la-la…”


If you´ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I make my own calendar-books. This time I wanted to go up a bit in size to a 15×20 cm (ca 5×7 inches). A big, bold and beautiful girly-girl on the front cover. The back-spine is red leather.


And the inside is made of a Teesha-inspired binding. All the pages are pre-painted before binding, including a lot of collage as well. Ready bound it´s about 7 cm/3 inches thick. It covers the end of October to the end of May., so about half a year. It would simply be too big to carry around if I´d added any more months into it.


To keep it from fanning out, I´ve added a ribbon to tie it together when traveling.


The back is decorated with a bird. It started out as a raven, but I think it might have developed into a tropical bird of some sorts. In short he needed some color 🙂


I´ve used a lot of collage-sheets from ARTstronauts by Theesha and Tracy Moore. Totally worth subscribing to their website art-club. Below is one of the pages, already starting to fill up with engagements.

    Så inspirerende! Lykke til med å fylle boken 🙂 (Jeg tror det er en ravn som drømmer om å være en drage! 😉 )
