Maybe you should judge a book by its cover.


Maybe.
Judging a book by its cover is good.
Well, sometimes.
Especially when the cover 
is handmade with love.
Like this.


These 7 gypsies blank book covers
were making me giddy with excitement
when I found them.
All I have to do was
embellish the cover
and make harmonica's pages
from white Canson acid free papers
for the inside,
where you can journal, doodle,
or stick your pics 
till your heart content.
These are 9x14cm.
I still have some bigger covers,
14x18cm, which I plan to 
embellish this week.
Uh, can't wait...

Last weekend,
I finished these covers too :


You may remember these albums
from this post last week.


 I loveee the texture
that I can feel with my fingers
for the albums.
Limited stocks, dear ones,
so grab it fast at the event
once you see it.
When it's gone, it's gone.

Still,
speaking about the book's cover,
I managed to finished 
these 17x23cm journals cover:


after the whole night
playing and covering my hands
with gel medium.


I am thinking to put a metal key 
somewhere on the cover later.
Maybe a quote too.
Hmm.
And of course, 
filling the inside pages with 
more papers and materials
that will delight the soul.

I'll be back soon enough.
