Module 3 Chapter 12 and Tidying Chapters 7 and 8

Photos 1,2 and 3 Sheets of collected images of artists who use construction (I did these some time ago but I don't think I documented them) for chapter 12.

Photos 5,6,7,8,9 Sketchbook pages to show the short artist study on Laura Thomas.

Photos 10, 11 Going back to chapter 7, to show samples mounted. On the sheet in photo 10, the sample on the top right has been changed since it was last photographed.

Photo 11, below, shows the tiny piece of wire weaving combined with another sample. This could be the resolved sample as both pieces were based on ideas from the research project.

Photos 12,13,14 I have sewn the edge samples from chapter 8 into a cotton cover to make a sample book for future reference. Photo 12 shows the outside with some words stitched on to describe the contents.

Photo 13, folded over to show the pleated spine. The samples are grouped and stitched into the pleats. To decorate it, I repeated the beaded edge idea.

Photo 14 shows the pages inside.

I want to hold your book Jane and look at it properly - it is stunning. I love the beaded edge and your earlier images and samples. I love the colours you are working in too.

The soft colouring is lovely and it looks so tactile - I'm sure it needs fingers! The beaded edge is so appealing.
