By the way….
My blog is worth $358,482.90.
How much is your blog worth?
Oh my God, this one is either an SAT test, or IQ test, or what Angelina Jolie scribbled on her pad during her last psych interview.
Or is it a maze? Optical illusion?
Brit chick falls in love with paper on a breeze.
Ha ha, very funny! Especially the Angelina Jolie bit
As for falling in love with paper, guilty as charged (I think….)
I like it. The first thing that pops into my mind is: chaotic. Very cool.
Chaotic – that’s a great word for it! It does look a bit like it’s having a nervous breakdown!
This book reminds me of my life. Crazy lines and edges – barely held in check – on the outside, curves and order on the inside. What an insane combination. Try living it!
BTW, do you do sales at all or is this just a hobby?
Almost the opposite to a swan then, seemingly serene and peaceful but pedaling away furiously below the surface!
I am planning on selling them soon, at the moment it’s just a hobby – leading to a giant pile of books!
Well, they are wonderful crafts that are worthy of selling. I hear Etsy is a good site. Please let me know when you get something going! :)
As I commented at Flickr: this is so far my favorite scratch book of yours – I just love the patterns as it looks inspiring.
Btw: Thanks for your nice comments on my Love Story post – glad we can inspire you too Diane :-)
I was scrabbling around Flickr trying to find a way to say thank you for adding me as a contact and not having much success as I don’t use Flickr much – and here you are ! Thank you! I was enjoying looking at your photographs and shall return and look some more – I shall also upload more of mine, now I am getting into it all!
very elegant Diane…..I love the classic look of it….
and the art deco-rish inside cover….
this would be on my list of top favourites….. :)
the flickr photos are a great idea…I think I ‘m a member there…will have to go and check it out…….
have a great day…..
Interesting you think it is elegant – everyone else says it’s chaotic or a nervous breakdown of a book! I think the white bows make it elegant if they had been black then it would have been a dark book indeed!
I just noticed how I seem to give my books personalities. Oh dear, is this the first sign of madness? I will be talking to them next….
Diane, this is stunning! The strength of the graphic really appeals to me. I must admit, ‘though, that my tastes can be quite schizophrenic. I enjoy very minimalist graphic styles and then turn around and fall in love with something soft and flowery.
I have a similar relationship to paper that you do. There are sheets that I’ve had for years, looking for just the right fit. I’m trying to move away from that, since there are always more beautiful papers to discover.
By the way, I like the changes you’ve made to your site. Good work!
Thank you! We sound very similar!
I came back from LA staggering under the weight of paper I bought in Paper Source yet tomorrow, I am off up to London to check out some new paper shops I have been told about and to visit my old favourite, Falkiners, for some leather offcuts and other bits and pieces – and probably more paper!
