Playing at C2C

As you know I love to make books so it was lovely at Committed to Cloth to be encouraged to make a book.

The activity started with us attaching a scratchy old paintbrush to a stick and drawing on a large sheet of paper using black India Ink.

When the first side was dry I worked on the other side using diluted ink.  When that was dry I used a needle pen to write words and also added some circles.

I cut the large sheet of paper up into different sizes.

I added orange ink and white acrylic and some painted papers randomly to pages.


I assembled the book and after stitching the signatures together I wouve thread through each of the signature threads to make the book.

Here's a video flip through of the finished book.


Thanks for joining me today.

    1. I'm leaving it for now because I have so many other ideas to play with. I may get back to it sometime.

  3. You amaze me how you step out and try so many different things. I love this book! The splashes of color on top of the black, white and gray and the abstract designs are so intriguing!
