Tis the season to make and buy handmade…

I just love Christmas,not so much the commercial aspects of it,but rather the warmth and feeling of togetherness this festive season brings between families and friends.I have so many wonderful Christmas memories that I want to preserve,but I just haven't had the time to put all my photos into albums… I made it my mission this year to try and get a few books ready for myself .

So,the moment  I found a couple of spare hours this month,I spent them creating Christmas themed photo albums ,a few of which I added to my my shop .

These are one of a kind albums with a beautiful textured hardback cover which I have painted with a snowy scene.These two books are currently available to post immediately,worldwide.Use the links below to view them in my shop.

I fell in love with the snowy night scene as soon as I started seeing it take shape as I was painting it.
The adorable bits of tartan rag and jingle bells on the binding finish off this special book.
 [the cover was created with a series of different textures]

I created the textured tree using a relief printing technique
 with old wooden printing blocks and some free hand drawing.

Here's wishing us all aMerry Christmas and a happy,peaceful and prosperous 2014!
