Here are the newest projects.

/Portfolio: Holiday Cards 2019

Written by Marenne on December 24th, 2019 | no comments

My holiday cards for this year were made using the eco-print technique. At the end of spring I set about to collect a bunch of vern leaves. I boiled these in water with madder-powder and printed them on alum-soaked aquarel paper by steaming them, sandwiched between two tiles. I transformed one side into a decorated ‘Christmas’ tree and the other side into pines in the snow. The text and stars/snowflakes were cut with my new cutting machines – small lines are a breeze now!

/Portfolio: Gitana’s Farewell Collection

Commissioned by the Montessorischool Landsmeer. A Farewell collection for a colleague with a new job. All the kids from that school decorated 1 a4 sheet of paper. I sewed these together using the overcast stitch method. I made 1 book per age-group. The 3 books fit perfectly into the folder I created with a paper-mosaic and color ribbons.

/Portfolio: Portfolio Album Asmae

Written by Marenne on February 26th, 2019 | one comment

A portfolio album, custom ordered by Asmae el Ouariachi, an Allround Fashion Stylist. It is an A3+ book, with a concertina/harmonica back, bound on 11 cords that disappear into the covers. The front cover has a lowered square surface to accommodate an image. I added a thinner cord to close the book. The book has 20 black pages (40 sides) and 4 semi-transparent pages for double sided sketches. After receiving the book, Asmae filled it, personalized it and sent me some pictures. I’ve attached those to this post.
