This book is taking ages but time is running out now. Mum is going home next month and the book has to come to an end. Finally I worked out the title for Mum's book: "RETRIEVED FROM ASHES". While I'm waiting for the new idea to arise here are few more details...

Beeswax! One of my favourite techniques for aging the pages... No other technique would make such an aged look. I'm so happy how this booklet turned out. I have billion ideas for the future projects but Mum's book is the priority.
I managed to learn one technique: Slip Knot Binding and gaining a new skill is priceless isn't it?
... and changes to previous details (typical for me: to critical for everything I do)... Looking the previous design I had feeling that something was missing but it takes a lot to find that "perfect" detail. I still think that this page is not quite finished yet and I'm continuing to think about what is it.
But one thing I can promise: the following two pages won't be changed any more.
