Number One

 
My first "numbers" challenge piece ~ Book of Numbers (and your remedies), 3-5/8 x 2-5/8 inches, a concertina book with tabs.  All paper used was first Gelli plate printed, including the tabs and title which have text printed on them.

The numbers were printed on cardstock, and I glued two of each together (so there are numbers on the back as well).  The printing process left them with a distressed look, which I love, so I further distressed the edges of all with a stamp pad.

Bonus points to anyone who knows what song the phrase "Book of numbers and your remedies" comes from, as well as which group sang it and what album the track was on.  If I get enough of the right answers, I might do a giveaway...although I won't be giving away this book.

Love this, Connie. Distressed resonates with me, possibly because that is where i come from. (re: the verse, well I don't think this is correct but makes me think of Bob Dylan's lyrics). happy weekend, sus

Great book.

Love your book, especially the serendipity of the distressed look. Nice to see someone else is a Steely Dan fan who knows the lyrics of Black Cow from Aja. Loved that album, wore it out.

I love this Connie!
Another Steely Dan fan although Black Cow isn't one of my favourites! I'm a 'Rikki don't lose that number' gal!
