Now… I’ve been thinking about the handmade book I wanted to make, drafting ideas for hours and I finally had my Eureka moment. I’m not going to make a handmade book, not enough space on my altar and the format is just too small, it would be too frustrating. Dioramas too would be just too big to fit in these little boxes of my altar. BUT I remembered I had great fun making scrapbook loaded envelopes and they could fit! I could even make a pile of them and display them in turn. There are some fantastic themes I want to work on, I feel so inspired. I think it’s the right solution for my type of creativity, it won’t be too frustrating (but still a bit because a bigger format would be more comfortable) and it reminds me of the exciting surprise pouches from my childhood.
I’m going to have so much fun!!!
I finished the draft for my first “loaded envelope”, it’s a bit more elaborate than what I had planned, but it is still just a draft. The final creation with inks and watercolours will be quite different, more textured with a few splashes here and there, otherwise where would be the fun in that. I will also have to make it small, quite the challenge.
