Lotus book - Oberon


Here is the finished lotus book. The folded pages inside work quite well (after I'd got my head around folding them all the same way!) but I didn't do well with my fairy dust and must do better next time!

The text is from Midsummer Night's Dream:
"I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows, etc."

Cover:

I'd thought of Oberon as a bit of Green Man and a bit of Herne the Hunter and a bit of a tree!

I was pleased how the book opened out and lay flat on the covers:


It's meant to look like a lotus flower when it's opened out, but I can't quite see it and perhaps the paper is too thick ....



But each page does open out and can be read, which I doubted would be possible, but it works!



The back cover:


This was one of my recent decorative papers that I liked, and some nice ribbon bought on eBay.

The book tied:


It has caused some headaches but was worth it I think. I had intended, if I thought it good enough, to give to my best school friend as a present but I think I'll try again as it isn't as neat as I'd like. I did learn a lot though!

A beautiful creation Angie, you are very talented. I love the bit of Green Man in Oberon, the oak is my favourite tree.

That looks really lovely Angie. I like Oberon as a Green man.
