So...you may have read that I fell behind in my Digit-al Dozen September Spectacular where we went back in time to revisit each month's theme for the last year. I intend to complete the two I missed when my kiddos got sick. Here's a simple one, but I liked it just the same. The theme is "books" and I wanted something well...simple...lol but also something with meaning. I didn't just want to do a book mani of a simple cover because it would be easy. I am an avid reader, well, I used to be before blogging and have shelves of books in every room. I went through them until I came across A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. I read this book many many years ago. It hit me hard then and it's still in my top 10. It was first published in 1995, set in Mumbai, India, and tells the tale of 4 main characters during 1975 and 1984 otherwise know as The Emergency. This was a period of expanded government power and crackdowns of civil liberties. It's so well written and tells the tale of the changes in India and what it was like to live there so poignantly, I felt like I was there. One of those books where I didn't want it to end.
What do you think? Would you wear this as is? It's not one I would normally, but once it was done I thought it looked pretty cool.
All the best,
