not so bleak by Melllorine not so bleak by Melllorine
It is a gift I drew for my boyfriend: ) We love forests.....
I aged the paper myself, and bought a cool old frame for it.

Happy New Year to Everyone :heart:

Forests are one of my favorite things also! This one is dead and creepy...reminds me of Lars von Trier's Antichrist--an excellent film!

Thats so gorgeous. No lie. Right now I'm trying to figure out what to give as a gift to my girlfriend. For christmas I did a calligraphy on a quote she said (She's into philosophy) on paper and made it pretty. Now that I think of it aged paper would of been prettier but right now I'm thinking of what to get her for her birthday. I have money but I still wanna see if I could make her something. I don't know

with old, or aged stuff you can make everything look better and more valuable, and for me, more lovely.

I am learning book-binding in school, it is easy to bind a book, really. You can find some pretty cardpaper in a hobby/creative store. You only need some paper for the cover, paper for the pages(you can also age them with tea), a curved needle, a straight needle(as thick as the curved one), PRITT glue, string and grey cardboard. There, here is some tutorial video I find useful:

there is an othe way to bind a book, but I can't find any useful video for that... but this japanese way is really pretty :)
