The shagreen cover
Next I designed the pink flowery inner pages and merged using various techniques, the edges were trimmed to size and a dilute crranberry was applied just to the edges.
I'm hoping she'll like them
Next it was time to design the embellishment before assembly. Using acrylic stencils I cut out 2 initals and backed them with a contrast and black stazoned the edges. Next little jewels were added, flowers and other bits. The letters were attached to the cover with pva and brads to secure
The next job will be to back the cover and insert the paper ribbon ready for the closing buckle.
The inserts have had their tags attached and the magnetic tape secured, its important to vary the position and thickness of the strips so that the book is not bulky in one particular spot.
When the cover is complete the inner pages will be sewn together the three central holes with strong thread. The final bit of bling a star buckle and its a job done!
