Remember this?

A while ago I made a few of these Rebecca Sower inspired book back canvases, I really enjoy this kind of work, loads of texture and interest on every square

after finding some covers I couldn't resist making a few more! I love the rich brown of this edition and was inspired to do a turquoise hanger. This particular one is truly international, with so many elements and ideas from far and wide!


the second cover has a hint of Autumn with pumpkin orange!


I also tried sewing and ruffling some bleached crepe paper, so very fragile but I really like the result, well worth the hassle!


Today I was privileged to meet Frau Buob of Rose du Village in Thalwil and she has agreed to offer some of my work for sale in her beautiful shop!! I'm absolutely over the moon at this wonderful opportunity to show my art locally!

Hi Margaret,
Oh my goodness these are beautiful and I love all the designs in different compartments...so pretty! But, I just saw your rust technique too...guess where I just went? My husband and I went on a long drive in search of rush! Can you believe it? If I had seen this, I could have done it home..lol

Congrats Margaret on selling your work.
I love this little book cover, must give it a go after I read how to do it. Thanks for the link and thanks for dropping by my blog. I have a pic of the bells but they need a bit more rusting.
Take care and good luck.
