Project - Growing Together Felt Book
posted 10/06/09 at 09:01 AM
This is a mini book that I designed and created from scratch. It's photos of my two kids together, from birth to present. Everything is cropped to 5 by 5. The inner pages are chipboard, with a hand-sewn binding. The Ali-style digital element on the cover was created in photoshop, and printed on Claudine Hellmuth sticky-back canvas, as were all the quotes. All the quotes are sewn onto Michael Miller fabric, so other than the chipboard, there is no paper in the book (well, the photo are paper!). The “Happiness” quote on the inside cover is a stamp by Stamping Bella, and the initals are cut from “Yogurt” QK alphabet, and hand stitched on. The cover is brown felt, with chipboard inside. I wanted to use fabrics instead of paper, to convey a warmth to the feel of the overall project. I spent hours collecting the quotes, and planning the project, but it came together relative;y quickly after that, as I really wanted to just keep it simple.
