Fragments, Vestiges and Remains- Kim's book
I was incredibly pleased to find the leather offcut with wonky eyelets in the scraps basket at a second hand shop. It was meant to be here! It was a pale (ugly) grey so a bit of black shoe nugget was dispatched to give it an older mottled look.
The Maori design at the bottom was black and white originally so I gave it the coffee treatment to stop it from being so bright. I was at the 2nd hand shop looking for appropriate Brittish piece when I came across a tatty tourist tea towel. Perfect! I really wanted to incorporate traditional Maori art on my page but it is perfect in design, symmetrical and lovely even lines. Not my strength at all. Thank goodness for tatty tea towels!
The photo to the left shows the fabric flaps lifted up to reveal the area where I envision the factual information will go. As you can see from the pic I've already made a start on the inside of the book cover.
It wouldn't be my blog post without the close up photos...
