My Purple Mixed Media Book

It was going to be a fabric Book,you may remember i started it last year,have picked it up again to finish,I live and learn,I should have done all the fabric pages first then made the cover ! but no not me i made the book first with Watercolour 140LB pages,so of course after getting a few pages made up and stuck in i was finding problems closing the book ! the end result is to paint some landscapes on the back pages,it does make the book more interesting though,so quite pleased with the outcome ! Also I have entered the "Derwent Best of British drawing Competition here I have,nt got a hope in hell of winning lol but if you want to vote for me on the 11th June it may help me win a bag at least haha,take a look there is some wonderful entries !

Might not be what you originally intended but I think it works beautifully having watercolour paintings and fabric art facing each other. Off to check out this competition...

Your book is so beautiful. I just love your paintings and the way you have mixed them with the sewn pages.
I also think that your entry stands a very good chance of winning.
