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

Written by Marenne on December 14th, 2019 | no comments

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: Debbie’s European Bucket List Book

Written by Marenne on May 23rd, 2019 | no comments

These books were commissioned by the Marriott European Business Councils to commemorate the retirement celebration of Debbie Marriott. Every council received a questionnaire enquiring about their best moments with Debbie and recommendations for future visits to their respective countries. I used their answers and pictures to create the inner layout for the bucket list book. I ended up creating 2 extra books (1 copy, 1 simple) for archival purposes. The cover of the book is made with gold paper and in inlay of a map of part of Europe. The book closes with a hidden magnetic strip. The endpapers are black with a gold pattern created with part of the Marriott European Business Councils logo. The simple copy has these endpapers as well, but in creme-white. The books have gold ribbons and were printed on biotop paper.
