2nd Pink Trio

The next three Valentine's books ~ the first has accordion folded pages that were stitched to the spine in a continuous pamphlet stitch.  Cover is a piece of stenciled 140# watercolor paper.  3 x 4 inches.

The book below has boards covered with my very first piece of surface designed silk, from years ago.  I'd not found a use for it before now.  The ribbon is braided 6-strand embroidery thread attached inside the back cover.  2-7/8 x 4 inches.

The last book has doubled paper hearts stitched into the valley folds.  The pink and white dotted paper is the only commercial paper used in this entire series.  2-7/8 x 3-1/8 inches.

I'll have three more mini books tomorrow.

Fun! I love the braided DMC. Such a simple technique that produces an elegant touch. Way to go, Connie!
