What a fabulous tutorial. I really like how you added the parchment paper at the end. I also like how you overlapped the pages to get the unique coloring effect. I have overlapped pages before, but it was accidental, and I tried to cover them and make them more cohesive. It never occurred to me to use those overlaps to my advantage. It's a wonderful tutorial, filled with great tips and tricks. Thanks for this.

Happy holiday season to you, too, but of course, I'll be back to see your Nov. pages and more before the end of the year.

really enjoyed watching this miniature book tutorial.. i have made many altered books.. now i am preparing to make 12 miniature ones for a christmas swap... 21/2 " x 1 3/4".. they are to be identical and made to hang from a christmas tree..

your video helped re- fresh my techniques and gave me new insights into how to do it handsomely..

i remember when i first discovered you and still treasure the pieces of collages that i have.. so many years ago.. am so fortunate to watch you "metaphor" into the artist you are..

and so very generous...producing 31 tutorials now..

forever grateful caterino giglio..

your fan,

A million thanks for this wonderful tutorial. I can’t wait to try it. And also, thank you for all your videos. They are so well done and so inspiring. Your art is gorgeous and your generosity in producing these tutorials is so appreciated.

Hope you have a beautiful holiday season.

Thank you again,

Janet Reid

Once again I am just thrilled to see you work; and how intimate your videos are without making yourself the focus. I've watched videos that there was no direct attention to what is actually going on. I only had to watch yours once to see what you were doing. I am a saturated color kind of gal; but I am gleaning so many techniques from you that I plan to use with all my colors. Thanks and have a wonderful holiday.

I thought about it all last night. Trying to figure out some of your techniques, need to watch it again and again....Well done. Thanks for doing these videos, I always pick up something new.
Happy Holidays to you and yours....and to all of your followers too.

Hi Dr. E!! So happy you enjoyed the little bug book and the techniques!! I have a couple of other ideas for mini books, so stay tuned!! I am hoping you have a wonderful holiday season without too much frigid weather where you are. It was 33 this morning and Floridians will be wearing parkas in the afternoon, at 56 degrees!! they wear winter coats when it is 68!! x

Hi Carol, I know many adore rich color and I do as well, just not as much in my work, but I am glad you found value in the blog and I am grateful to you for your viewership! Thanks ever so much!! Have a great holiday!!

Caterina Giglio said...

DD, so happy to see your comment here and sorry it has taken me so long to respond, but you know what it is like with the holidays!! very glad you liked the tutorial, and I think I am getting better at it too!! It is quite a lot of work and really takes away from my studio time, so I think I will do less this year, but hopefully, they will be better!! Thanks again!!

Thank you so much Cat for creating and sharing this little video! The tips and tricks are so appreciated not to mention all the energy and time you have put into creating so many wonderful videos for us all. I'm sure you are making us better artists because of it!
Wishing you and Don the best Festive Season full of peace and contentment!

Cat, A belated question about book binding. Do you have a favorite book that discusses different types of binding? At the library, I got the one by Keith Smith, 300 pages written for serious perfect binding. I'm more the imperfect type. Pictures are good too:).
Thanks for any advise. DD
