I have had this lovely Japanese Yuzen paper for some time and a couple of days ago I had a sudden urge to use it, I guess the pattern is quite abstract, but to me it looks like fireworks. I decided to make this little notebook constructed as a music binding, which means it lies nice and flat when opened.
I had a really nice cotton bookcloth in a beautiful cornflower blue shade, which matched really nicely with the yuzen paper.
As you can see I blocked a pattern using white foil to match the decorative pattern inside and I am very pleased with the end result. I think it is a really cute little notebook and it feels nice in the hand too. I really enjoy making the music bindings and I am sure there will be more coming soon!
