Vintage wallpaper covered art journal with vintage couple and millinery
This 5x7" book is 3/4" thick and filled with brown paper, ready for you to use for your own musings, dreams, and plans. Plenty of space is available for adding more papers and pretties and using this book as an art journal. A few pages are already trimmed or embellished as a head start for you.
It is tied with lace and hand dyed silk, and the spine is embellished with a bundle of silk and lace then topped with a velvet rose bud.
I have hand made this book from sturdy chipboard and pretty floral tape.
Front and back are covered in 1920's wallpaper.The interior covers feature pink (!) ledger paper from 1894
The charming courting couple were taken from a Victorian card. I've rimmed it in a smattering of vintage millinery blooms to accent the flowers on the card.
Lace is used all around the edges of the interior and a black metal scrolly bit of scrap is added as a faux latch.
I'm including a scrap pack of more wonderful. old paper for you to add to the pages as you fill the book. Many of the pieces are quite old and fragile.
