so so good to see some fab sunshine lately and very appropriate for the lovely colour theme on the Tando blog for this month!
I have wanted to have a go at the coptic (open spine chain-stitch) book binding method for a long time so what a brilliant opportunity to 'have a go' using one of Tando's sturdy book cover kits.............
I primed and painted the covers of the Frame kit with a plain base coat (the spine board from the kit will be used for another project), then added extra layers of paint using bubble wrap. A stamped image and sentiment from my stash was added as a focal point too. Using a pokey tool I was easily able to put the required stitching holes into the covers and then bind in sheets of watercolour paper.
Here is what I used.......
A selection of book cover kits and much much more can be found on the Tando Creative retail site.
Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to.
