Mini concertina book

Hi everybody!
Just a quickie today as I need to go to the doctor's for some exams.

This is a little concertina book I made with some scraps of Halloween stuff leftover after making some other projects. The book is 2"x2", twinchie size.

Front:


Each page has been decorated with one spooky element:
 

From the other side:


The Back cover:
 

I gave the covers several coats of varnish to make them more durable, and there is plenty of space inside for writing favourite Halloween recipes etc! The edges have been inked with wild honey and gold ink.

I am linking to Artful Times, 'Twinchies' challenge.

Have a great day, take care and thanks a lot for coming by!

  7. We are coming up on my favorite time of the year - Autumn. I love the colors and the crisp feeling in the air. And to top it all off is Halloween. Oh what fun - no seriousness allowed here! Your little book is wonderful and I am grinning from ear to ear. I hope everything went well for you at your doctor's visit. Boo to you too!

  13. That's a really excellent Artist's Book. I like the way you have a small illustration on each page which then allows for writing, and it's a good fun size, with lovely work for this very small scale.
