Juxtapos Handmade

This is a book I got for my birthday last week.
I haven't done a book review for months, possibly because of a lack of anything worth sharing.
I love this book, it is so inspirational and different.
Over the last few days this book has been placed on my coffee table and I have picked it up every night 
I have pinched a few pics from Googlies to share, there is so much more.

this has to be the next project

There are a few things that I have been able to re-create (of sorts) with Littlest.
There is a Thumb War picture created using thumb prints that have been made into little characters.
Littlest made his own version, there were green finger prints everywhere but it was brill. He even made a card for Mr betty and made a thumb family picture....his character was a little finger print!

The book also features some paper food art, dead easy.
Using coloured tissue paper, cutting out onion rings, lettuce etc, then stacking as a sandwich....brilliant fun and looks fab.
I would defo recommend this book to anyone, arty or not. 

The book is published by Gingko Press.
 p.s I will post some of our creations. x
