Clay/Goldleaf Minibook

I finally finished this book that I have been wanted to make for about a year. It took me a couple weeks of stealing tiny bits of time for myself it is. The goldleaf is actually baked right into the clay after pressing this design into it.

There are two 5x3 1/2 inch sheets of metallic blue clay to make the front and back. Leather cord are thread through drilled holes for loops. The front loops have buttons slipped through the cord. Here you can see the back loop fits over the button on the front panel when the book is closed.

This accordian book has three small tags. The idea came from the book "Creative Stamping in Polymer Clay" by B. Mcguire. I started off making faux seals then really had to have this book to learn more techniques using clay.

Finding tiny bits of time to myself

I haven't posted in a couple weeks but I have been surfing my favorite blogs. I'm working on another really fun clay minibook. It's taking a while to finish along with a little bit of scrapbooking in between. Please leave a quick comment if you come along to my tiny corner of the world.
