Book covers 3

I made these book covers yesterday using similar techniques to those used on Tuesday but with more readily available materials. So alcohol inks were substituted with silk dyes, shop bought chipboard (thick card) backgrounds with mount board offcuts, and die cuts with my own cereal packet card cutouts based on drawings in sketchbooks. The shape and size was changed to make it more suitable to take the postcard sized samples we've been making in class at Brewery Arts. The bundle of sticks were collected on my usual daily walk and wired through the card cover. The samples are being made into a ziz-zag format and the end pages will be glued to the covers. Can't decide whether to add ties to it yet to hold it all together.
