Fabric scrappy book

When I went to stay with my friend for a textile two days we made a start on a fabric book. We just used scraps of fabric, and of course, I chose turquoise. We only just made the cover and the rest I have done at home.

The fabrics are a mixture of gelli prints, batiks, and ribbon and lace. The leaves are pelmet vilene painted with acrylic paints.
 Having laid down all the fabric scraps, I thought it needed something else. I seem to be on a tree and leaf theme at the moment so decided to make some leaves in a contrast colour. Autumn colours go well with the blue, and I had a few left over from  the previous book. I made some more and then started to put the pages together.
This post is a bit picture heavy.

I love your scrappy book - each page is beautiful. I think leaf shapes are so inspiring and make such lovely designs.
