A Project Off the Table

Sometimes there’s a project that just doesn’t inspire you to finish.  Somehow nothing seems right for the finishing touches.  This notebook, covered with soft deer hide, sat on the shelf for about a month, waiting for an idea that fit.  Finally, I had a breakthrough and used this picture from some gorgeous wrapping paper to make this book more impressive.  The paper is from the Canadian Wildlife Federation.  There is no artist named, otherwise I’d be pleased to tell you who painted this.

Ammonite Notebook

image

My newest book, incorporating a resin and ammonite chip cabochon.

It is less than 6×8 centimetres in size.

I sculpted the ammonite shape with paper and leather. It was a bit of a puzzle to get it all together with the added challenge of glue.

The leather is those black pants again! I don’t think they were ever worn so it is nice to think they are enjoying a successful afterlife 🙂
