Handmade Book

I started making this book months ago. I needed something to work on at crops when I didn't have other projects to do, so I made little altered pages. I finally put them all together and made a book to display them.

I used a 7 Gypsies book board for the cover, and embellished with a Crafty Secrets image, old fabric and trim, and Prima flower.

I bound the book using a piece of printed canvas and embellished it with old tatted trim.

As you can see, I made quite a few little pages for the book.

Here are just a few of my favorites:

I used images of birds, old postcards, and pages from a small art book.

I layered the images with old paper, journaling spots, rub-ons, trim, buttons.

I'm still going back and embellishing some more.

This little book was fun to put together. I don't know if I'll ever consider it "finished," as I'm always finding something else I want to add.
