Book is balancing in an oval stand
Piano Hinge Book #6
I used mat board for the covers then used a Krylon silver leafing pen on the edges and glued down a piece of glossy paper I decorated with alcohol inks (red, white and silver).
The inside of the covers was the white of the mat board which I covered with crinkled white tissue paper and then colored with red stamp pad inks, wiping away the excess color until I got the density of color I wanted.
I used the same binding technique as Joanne mentioned she used on her book. Rather than cutting away a portion of the hinges on the front and back cover, which I've done with my previous five books, I left them the way they were so that I could use them to thread beads in between the left over hinge links.
This is an 11 signature book.
I alternated white and red cardstock signatures
