Hey everyone! Many of you may remember the handmade book I gave away to celebrate the release of Jason and Lily. Well, I guess I just couldn’t get enough of the handmade book thing, because I’m doing it again! I’m making a hand bound edition of Flipped to give away to one lucky winner. This time, it gets even better….
A while back, I saw some gorgeous handmade journals from Latvian artist Aniko Kolesnikova. She makes decorative polymer clay panels and affixes them to writing journals. Well, when I was thinking of how to make this release special, and my thoughts turned to another handmade book, I ended up wondering if I could incorporate this same sort of decorative element. So I did some research, and turns out… it’s a perfect fit! As a matter of fact, rather than attaching a piece to the cover, my decorative piece is the cover.
Check out this video of the beginning of the process. (And yeah, I know I sound like a little kid.) :p
Like I said in the video, this is only the beginning of the process! I’ll be posting more videos soon to show you the journal as it comes together. The giveaway will be open to everyone, and it will also be up soon… so make sure you stay tuned for your chance to win this one-of-a-kind art book.
