At long last a decision has been made for inside back cover. I have tried so many different photos before deciding on this one.
I used all my silk inkjet printing sheets (must remember to order more) but at last I am happy. Other photos were interesting but didn`t work with front inside cover.
I now have a variety of printed sheets waiting for another project.
Inside spine changed. If you recall I was not happy with first attempt.
Decision made and now happy as is (fairy magic)
Images of Oats, Wheat and Barley throughout the book. Childrens action song.
Oats and Wheat and Barley grow
You or I or nobody knows
How Oats and Wheat and Barley grow
There are about 4 verses
Decision made about 2nd page. I changed the layout.
Another page almost finished.
Pages 2 and 3 almost finished. Just 5 to get working on.
Have added a poppy to the 1st page. These pages are now definitely finished.
Decision made about adding gesso to outside covers.
(fairy magic said "just get on with it") so it is done.
This has muted the colour a little and added some protection to covers from handling.
O.K. What do you think ?
Plan for next week .
1 Get to Crop Research to make postponed visit.
2 Work on remaining pages
3 Think about outside spine
4 Make machine cords to attach to covers. These
will close the book.
Look in next Sunday to view progress.
Some of my art supplies. A certain make of coffee jar makes great pen holders.
