Creating A Signature Book

I simply drool over seeing other
artists hade-made or altered 
Now it is time for me to take up this craft...
I love a challenge!
So I am staring off by experimenting with 
* recyclable materials *
* scrap papers *
* gesso *
* variety of paints *
* masking tape *
* pen & ink *
(whatever comes to mind)
This will be a process...
I am looking forward to seeing 
how I develop in this skilled craft.

Mini Signature Pocket Book

I had a wonderful time creating these signature books!

Enjoy exploring new techniques...
Happy Saturday!


  1. these are lovely! I want to make one! :)

  2. They look very interesting, I think I have to make another book! Valerie

  3. Very cute! Do you have something planned for them?

  4. Hi April...I love these little books!!! Too cute! Have you seen Monica Z's free videos about altered books at her ning site? Take care...

  5. Thank you ladies!
    I am glad you enjoyed taking a look at these signature books.
    Because, this is an on going project,
    there will be more to see as time goes on.
    I am hoping to create a nice collection for myself, and have some for sale in the near future!!

  6. I loved looking at these; I think they bring such a personal touch to the journals and really capture more deeply a snapshot of your life at that moment- WELL DONE!

  7. What fun books! Great project. Maybe when you discover a design you would like to share, you could provide a tutorial. I keep purchasing books about bookbinding, but haven't worked up the nerve to embark on a project of my own.

  8. I am going to make a book...great idea!
