My Creative Space: bookish

I have been holding off on this project for a little while now, time to dust it off and get it done I think.  You can find the original idea and tutorial at Esta Sketch.

I have myself a box of 100 postcards, but not ordinary postcards, they are book covers from Penguin publishers.  We have a LOT of books in our house that its only fitting that they adorn our walls, so I am going to frame and hang a selection of these that best reflect us and our literary tastes. But which ones to chose?


There are of course the classic fiction titles...


...and there are a range of what would surely have been very useful non-fiction titles...


...some of the more modern illustrated covers are interesting (and August IS a wicked month).


There are so many titles that you can turn them to any storytelling purpose, such as at home this morning it was...


...which lead to some...


...which had one of us thinking about...


Have a great Thursday and when you head on over to Kootoyoo for more Creative Space, grab yourself some...

I think you should make a progressive grouping of about 4 frames, open at the top, that would allow you to edit your display, depending on your mood!
