Book 1 - for series 52

I want to create a book a week for the rest of 2018!!!!

(I've created 3 already, so I am up to date!!)

Here is number 1.
 I am sharing this in a FB groep called series 52,
and it's all about creating something a year long;
the choice what you want to create is your own...
so somebody else might want to de a sketch a week.. 


This is my text on that FB page:

"Series 52 - my first week .. a tiny booklet... it measures 6x6 centimeters..

... : 7 stitched signatures (3 folded watercolor paper per signature) , binded it with a hard cover (cotton fabric to cover the covers)... even the head bands are there.. so the most used binding in the book industry, I think.

.... I want to make a book (I think they are all going to be mini's, just to practice the binding etc. ) every week. Wanted this for a long time now, and decided to take this up through 2018 at Series 52 

... . It's about the making, not the filling of the book with art.. not at this stage anyway.. I might change my mind during the process....
This one is going to hold all passport photo's from one of my sons.. I think .. not sure yet..

HOPE YOU like it!!"

TWTT - Ways to Use Nuance Powders

Using Nuance powders is the theme of our monthly Tuesday With The Team on the Magenta blog; this is my entry for it as a design team member. 


Making backgrounds with Nuance has been my favourite technique .. 

These were light enough to stamp over it and just make the images pop with a little extra color and a white highlight around the edges.

Sometimes it's great to use complimentary colors in a project.. they make it pop.
