Little Blank Books

I've been very absorbed in making these cute little spiral bound books. Ever since I purchased my Bind-It-All machine at The Stamp Attic last fall, I've been trying to develop a book style that is easily repeatable. Well, I finally succeeded. It's given me an opportunity to use some of the wonderful papers I've been collecting for the past few years.
The first book features paper I ordered from New Zealand. I love all things "ocean" and this paper really spoke to me. The next two photos show the cover and the inside plate of the same book. The cover paper has several different colors of fiber and paper inclusions. I love the way it all marbles together. The inner plate is handmade (not by me) paper which incorporates leaves.

These books (and more to come!) are for sale on my second etsy shop, APeacefulLife.
