vintage altered book










I have started working on an altered book. The book was originally about kings and queens and it was being thrown out at the library! I have painted and inked the cover and cut out a frame. I have added a floating perspex layer over the face and a transparent butterfly. Just love these prima flowers which I have added some old buttons to. Going to ink and gesso the pages next..I have already ripped most of the pages out and there are some lovely images on them..probably going to add tags, fav quotes, pictures in it etc...The theme over at Crazy Amigos is squares this week so be sure to check out all the other entries too..
