Art journal with fluid paint cover with silk ribbon flowers
This vintage book has been dissasembled then reassembled as an art journal with a painted cover, re-enforced spine, and parchment style card stock pages tied in with pretty ribbons and lace.
I've trimmed this 5-1/2 x 7-1/2" book with ruffled ribbon on both sides of the spine. To the cover, I've added a porceline image and surrounded it with very old, very wonderful, silk ribbon flowers and vines. The closure ribbon is covered with a lush, brown velvet ribbon topped with a strip of rhinestones cut from a 1940s bracelet. The stones are very nice and clear with good sparkle.
Tatting, in a lovely design, lines the inside of the front cover, and lace covers the inside of the back cover. The 4 sets of pages are tied in with cream and white ribbons, decorated with a bundle of laces and charms.
The outside spine is covered in vintage book pages and the interior in decorative duct tape for strength and durability. It measures 1-3/4" thick, so has space to fill up with lots of interesting pages as you work in it!
