Gelli Printing Bookbinding

After spending a day gelli printing (and having huge fun!) I decided to use the prints and turn them into a bookbinding project.  




Made a box for my bookbinding corner cutting tools. 


Aww, I found miniature shears at a miniature fair. How tiny they look next to my work shears!

Not a Pig

Me and my friends talked about money boxes we made when we were little. Covering a balloon with wallpaper paste and newspaper, using parts of egg boxes to make legs and nose and create a pig. Curious about it, I tried to recreate one of these money boxes – with no success. Two legs and the nose fell off and I created a monster!

Potato Printing


What a joy. A day of potato printing. I must have been in kindergarten the last time I did potato prints.
