This A6 size notebook could be an evolution of the previous one I made.

COLOR: It’s just like that: the combination of lavander & pink made me add a yellow touch. Why? I don’t know (well, yes, I know…I’ve a lot of yellow paper around here;))

SHAPE: Now, why did I choose to cut out the pieces…? That’s because lately I’ve been thinking about how to put all the 3d paper sculptures shapes (like the ones Jen Stark does) on a bidimensional medium preserving the “handling” factor. That’s kind of impossible, I mean, I couldn’t get the same results, but I managed to play with the paper thickness a bit. 

Hope you’ll like this tiny first attempt of adjustment between sculptures and notebooks.

There will be consequences ;))

I made this notebook following my great passion for cut edges on the cover.

I started with the flowers (as you can see in the previous post) and shifted here to geometric shapes. I was looking for a new perspective of the interaction between simple, plain colors and lines.

I tried to take advantage of the double cover to give an ultimate effect.

Why am I using pink right now? The answer is really simple: because I have a lot of pink (and lavander) paper!

Hope you’ll like it!

Neon Color Studies

I made this stop-motion video assembling pieces of paper I cut out from another project. Somehow they were asking me to do something with them…

Enjoy ;)

Color studies #2

I’ve been into neon colors lately. So I started playing with them. Here you’ll see some pictures I took while cutting and glueing two days ago.

These are basically studies for the covers of a new line of neon-notebooks I’ve in mind. This time I was playing with the layers, trying to juxtapose them in a certain fashion..I wanted to find a good balance between colors and shapes, but I also wanted to test the paper, to see if it folds in a proper way etc.

The range of possibilities is so extense that sometimes I fall into some extreme experimentalism and start building “things” that nobody could use!!

3 of them are almost ready, but I’m working at different projects at the same time so I don’t know when I’ll be able to blog them..

Hope you’ll enjoy it ;)

Color studies

This is a very simple agenda, A5 size, it has blank pages and hard cover.

As you can see, the right side is different from the left side..I didn’t planned it! Since many things in my work happen by chance, this time I realized - to late - I didn’t have enough yellow paper, so I had to use the red one ( a very tiny piece..) 

I think I might start a series with neon colors…strong colors like these. I kind of enjoyed to see fuxia, red and yellow together here. 

I’ve already started 2 notebooks with strong colors, so I thought this could be a good intermezzo;)
