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...
