The first task in the workshop was to choose the paper that we wanted to cover the box and book in. There were three enormous stacks of handmade Nepalese paper to choose from, in an absolute rainbow of colours and textures. Glazed paper, marbled paper, leaf printed paper and even paper that felt and looked like leather. So what did crazy ,outrageous,colour mad me choose for my first project?
Black and white.
How very brave and adventurous.
I must say though I was very happy with the simplicity of it when all was said and done( and glued and stitched)
My first Coptic stitched book.....( and certainly not my last!)
After the girls go to bed this evening, I am going to make another book covered in vintage wallpaper - and then perhaps another !
