Domingo muito produtivo
After very early in the morning having done all my usual domestic Sunday tasks I was able to find the time to do a little bit of bookbinding at home. I still can't believe that after a trip to the supermarket, chemist store and bakery, doing lunch and dinner plus taking care of Leonor and giving her a lot of cuddles I was able to do so much!
512 Ideias mas queria muito usar papel Japonês nelas por isso adorei o resultado final desta caixa preta e vermelha. Acho que até agora é a minha favorita.
All the card was already cut for these two cube boxes since I gave this workshop at 512 Ideias but I really wanted to use Japanese handmade paper on them. I love the result of this black and red box. I think it is my favorite so far.
And I still had time to make a book (one was already finished) with marbled hand painted paper. I still have to improve my technicque so the corners stay with the exact same measures but to my surprise, I really liked this last work. After I applied the paper to make the book it just gained a life of its own. These books were a gift for a friend who i hope won't stay disappointed!
Ainda bem que quarta-feira é feriado pois tenciono ter tempo para pegar nos meus suspenso projectos de costura. Afinal o Natal está quase aí à porta!
I am glad we have a bank holiday on Wednesday because I intend to have time to pick on my suspended patchwork projects. After all Christmas is almost here!
