I CRAFTED THE COVER AND TITLE OUT OF CARDBOARD AND THEN HAND BOUND THE BOOK TOGETHER USING WAXED BOOKBINDING THREAD USING A SINGLE SHEET METHOD.

I UTILIZED MY OWN DIGITIZED WATERCOLOR STROKES IN COMBINATION WITH SOME HAND LETTERING AND THE BEAUTIFUL PAISLEE PRESS CIRCLE TEMPLATE.

HERE'S THE FIRST SPREAD OF MY 'TEN THINGS BOOK'. I USED A LAYERING OF THE 8 1/2" TEMPLATES AND THE 12"X12" TEMPLATES TO GET A LAYERED, DIMENSIONAL BOOK. THE TEMPLATES CAME WITH THE LOVELY CIRCLE LAYOUT THAT YOU SIMPLY USE A CLIPPING MASK TO COMPLETE. I USED THE TEXT BOX PROVIDED FOR MY TITLE WORDS (ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE) AND THE 'ONE' CURSIVE TITLE WAS ALREADY IN PLACE WITHIN THE TEMPLATE. I USED THE OTHER TEMPLATE OPTIONS PROVIDED FOR THE OTHER SIDE OF EACH SPREAD AND MADE SURE THEY FELT RANDOMIZED. IT WAS A VERY SIMPLE PROCESS TO LAY THIS BOOK OUT IN PHOTOSHOP AND SINCE I PRINTED IT MYSELF, IT WASN'T TOO EXPENSIVE EITHER! TO SEE THE OTHER NINE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT FALL, BE SURE TO HEAD OVER TO THE PAISLEE PRESS BLOG FOR THE FULL BOOK!
