The Booksmith Classics Challenge

This is my first ever attempt at bookbinding and making my own “proper” journal. The project is in response to Nik The Booksmith’s classics challenge to create a journal based on a literary classic – in my case I chose H.G. Wells War of the Worlds. One of my all-time favourite books.

To view Nik’s Classics Challenge video click here.

To watch the flip through of my journal click the YouTube link below. This is NOT a process video as it took me almost two weeks to create from start to finish with a few breaks in between waiting for various resources to arrive from around the globe! However, I’m sure you’ll be able to appreciate the work that I put into it and as it is my very first attempt at a full binding project – you’ll forgive me if I get a few things wrong or did a few things wrong…it’s a learning curve!

I have included a few photos in a gallery below if you want a closer look at some of the pages in this journal.

Mini Mixed Media Assemblage Frame – Friends

I haven’t created any kind of 3D mixed media project for quite a while and I just fancied getting my hands dirty with a small mixed media assemblage shadowbox frame. The frame box is approx 4.5″ x 4.5″ (12cm x 12cm). I bought this and two other frames quite cheaply at my local craft store last year and they’ve been gathering dust – so time to use them up!

To watch how I created the assemblage frame from start to finish you can click the YouTube link below.

I hope you enjoyed watching how the box frame was created in real time. If you did please remember to give the video a thumbs up, share with your friends and if you haven’t subscribed to my YouTube channel yet, you can do so by clicking the button at the end of the video.
