Art House Project - Update

Originally uploaded by Anita Davies

My book arrived this morning and my is the paper thin, so pleased I decided to re-load it!
I faced a couple of problems, having prepared the pages BEFORE the book arrived but nothing I couldn't overcome.
The folded pages made browsing quite difficult, so I have had to cut most of the tabs off. I've left the first tab, the two centre tabs and the one at the rear of the book that I may turn into a pocket seeing as I had to stick my back page over the pocket provided in the original book.
It works and I don't have to start all over again, which I was afraid of...that's all that matters!
Phew!

Still haven't had time to finish the pages I started working on and I won't get time now until next week because I'm off to the coast for a weekend break with art girlfriends Friday afternoon.
Hope to get lots of sketching done while I'm away and will share on my return.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Where there's a will, there's a way and you achieved it....well done, Anita! The book looks great!

Enjoy your weekend away...sounds like fun ~

Anita Davies said...

Thanks ladies!

Purple....I'm not sure how many pages I have in there, I just took three sections from an existing sketchbook and thought 'hmmm, that feels about right' LOL!
It's all packed up now, I'll count them when I next get it out. There is nowhere near the original 60 odd pages of the cahier...I do know that!
