Watercolour drawings

For the cover I used wrinkeld ricepaper that I later painted with acrylic paints to match the colour of the booklinen.

This gives a very nice texture and feel to the covers.

Working in books is something I really enjoy. Especially with watercolour. So I made these two little books with heavy watercolourpaper.
Now that I have learned to make books with booklinen and decorative paper, I want to find new ways to decorate the covers.

Simple Blue Book

This is a book that I made from drawingpaper, 200 grams. It is meant to be a sketchbook, and already in use. I like the fact that I can now bind my own sketchbooks with the dimensions that I need and the quality paper that I prefer to use!
