Something borrowed, something blue…

29 Jul

Here is a wedding album set I made for a summer wedding. I had been saving this beautiful indigo blue coverpaper for a special album and when I saw this couple’s wedding invite, I knew it would match perfectly!

The paper has a slightly waxy feel to it as it is created using batik – a process where parts of the paper are blocked out using wax before dying the paper. When the dye has dried, the wax is removed, revealing the original paper colour – as the wax prevents the dye from penetrating the paper.

Art Deco wedding album set

19 Aug

I was asked to make this wedding set (guest book and 2 albums) for a couple who like a minimalistic style. When I heard that their wedding colours were black and white, I instantly thought of using this paper.

The guest book is a Secret Belgian binding – my new favourite! I thought that this style would really compliment the paper pattern. I have included some photos of this book in progress, to give you an idea of how it is made.

The large album is a Japanese Stab stitch album. It also has an inscription on the front page ‘I am convinced that to live is to travel to the world’s end’. This quote was chosen because the couple meet while working in a bar called ‘World’s End’. The smaller album is a traditional case bound book. I used the black book cloth in a way that mimics the paper pattern. Each of the albums have black paper inside, making a nice contrast with the coverpaper.
