Books Full of Prints

I used up most of the pages I painted last week by filling this notebook with extended prints and collages. I was planning on using the cover I had made a few months ago but the holes were off.  So it ended up being the plain cover on the left. If I have time, I will cover that notebook too. Just have to decide with what. I would like to do a bit of paint pouring on a cover but not sure I have time.

Here are a few of the page spreads. The hardest part is putting them in an order that works with the color on the back of the previous page. I just realized that all of these are tree related but I promise there are other collages and prints that aren’t about trees.

And this is the cover of my larger notebook. This page actually started as a 12″ x 12″ sheet and it needed trimming. I just trimmed where I liked the composition. Then when I was finished with it, I realized it was the exact size to fit correctly on this notebook. I like it when a plan comes together 😉

  1. I don’t mind looking at lots of trees! You’ve done well with the colour matching of the pages – I can imagine how tricky that was.
    What are the odds on your trimming that page to the exact size of your notebook? It must be your lucky day.

    • Thanks Lyn, it’s good you don’t mind the tree theme because I’m kind of stuck on it for now. It was quite surprising that the page fit so well as if it was meant to be 🙂

  2. Love it when that happens! And IMHO you can never have too many trees. 🙂

    Is your notebook cover detachable or will you have to protect the pages if you pour paint on it?

    • Thanks Kim! Well, I have to agree about the trees. You can take the notebook completely apart so I would take it off first and then probably gesso it before I poured paint on it. I can’t imagine trying to protect the pages. That would be painful 🙂

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
