I took a better shot of the finished inside cover to share.
Now that the inside is complete, I can start applying embellishments to the outside. I had an image of a tree in my mind, so I began by applying a web of roots.
Then I drilled some holes, added a little wire for an armature, and began building the tree.
I haven't taken any more photos of later progress, but I'll try to get some up in a day or two.
How's this for an excuse for being distracted though?
My daughter-in-law and granddaughter came for a visit this weekend and it would have been downright inhospitable to disappear into my studio. We both had fun playing with my camera though.
The camera strap was the big attraction for her. Never fear... I'll teach her which end is the fun part when she's older. For now, I just like making her grin.
