Hope your all enjoying your crafting. Have just finished this mini alterd book and am quite pleased with how it's turned out. Can't remember quite where I saw this in the first place, but would like to thank those that inspired me to have a go!!
This actually looks bigger than it is !! The book itself was 4x4 inches. Thought this would be a nice size for my first attempt. Chose the lavender colours so that they match my bedroom, or at least will when it's decorated!!
I began by folding each page in half towards the centre and then distreesed the pages with scattered straw and rusty hinge Distress Inks.......so glad at this point that I had not chosen to use a large volume of an encyclopedia!!!
The inside covers were covered with L Llewelyn vintage paper, lace distressed in mulled lavender and gems attached to highlight the lace,t he extra nice bit was to decide which bits then to add. I had to think in miniature and a lot of the things I wanted to use were too overpowering, (Have to do a larger book for these now!) The book was on Palmistry originally and so I thought I would use deep and meaningful words that I could look at each day.
When finished I knew there was something missing so added the tassle and the cherub......job done.
Hope you like it and want to have a little go of this.
Happy crafting moments
