I spent Martin Luther King Day making more boiled books with friends. Look at the gorgeous patterns, textures and colors Mother Nature gifted me with!
I used to prefer working with the smaller sized books made from a 9 x 12 sheet of 140 lb watercolor paper (accordion fold). This time, I took a 22 x 30 sheet of 140 lb watercolor paper and folded it down to 5 1/2 x 7 1/2. This larger size page allowed me to use larger leaves that I would not have been able to experiment with in the smaller books. I am really loving this larger size page!
I finished my covers with these beautiful handmade papers my sister-in-law brought back for me from her recent trip to Thailand. The texture and colors of these papers complimented the organic feel of my boiled books just perfectly!
