Irish Love by Maylar Irish Love by Maylar
Valentines approaches and here's my contribution...green and gold with many hearts ;)

If you wonder why Irish thematic, well, it's just because I love Ireland dearly and have more than few friends there, so it is often in my mind. And I love green shades ;)

This miniature book is bound by saddle stitch and is 1cm high (0.39 in) and 8mm wide (0. 31 in), hardcovers. It has 16 pages, dyed in "Earl Grey"+endpapers, dyed dark green (similar to covers...sorry you can see them here, photos turned rather dark and unusable...I'll try to show them in the video, which should be made in a day or two). Gilding in paint. All is, of course, done by me.

You can see a (not very good :() video of it here:

That's that, more or less. Hope you like it :)

That is so awesome. It's an adorable, tiny valentine. I'd love something like that as a present (anytime of year hehe).

Beautiful work! :clap:

Glad you like it, thank you. It sometimes happens that my hands are not so steady and I mess something up, lol, but I mostly manage...as for the patience, it comes with the love for this sort of work, I guess...

Wow, this is so beautiful and tiny and cute! All those hearts! I really love the design; you arrange the hearts in nice patterns, and the dark green gives it sort of a mystical touch... I especially like how you did the spine!

I love that shade of green...you're right, it looks mystical to me, too :) As for a spine, it's a design I plan to use again very soon ;)
Glad you like this, thank you :)

Ooh it's so small and cute! Awesome, as always!
Though I can't say I share your love of Ireland, it's much nicer to visit than to live in. xD

Thank you so much, glad you like it. I understand some bad aspects of living in Ireland (having friends there means I know few things about that, too) and it has its bad sides, but which country doesn't? And there's also a great, rich culture and art, which I admire and love :)

Haha, just a day or two more, I promise...it's almost ready, but the work on some other projects is painfully urgent, so this has to wait. But, soon, soon...^^

It does, no worries ^^...I had a delay of few days now, for all the work, but I think it would be over really, really soon now that I started working again :)
