Art journal with autumn tones
This 5-1/2 x 6-1/4" book is completely hand made from top to bottom, using only the GOOD STUFF. I've painted a canvas with and acrylic paint pour techique, with atumnal tones including a metallic copper and gold. The canvas has been adhered to chip board and lined with nice, old wallpaper.
After reinforcing the spine with decorative tape, I've tied in pages of cardstock covered in more vintage wallpapers all in fall colors (to use as a background or cover as desired.)
The girl on the front is cut directly from a victorian advertising card and is layered over an old millinery leaf that looks as if the first hint of autumn is about to turn it from green to orange. She has tiny millinery blooms on her headband along with an irredecent crystal accent.
The book cover is trimmed out with velvet ribbon, lace and mother of pearl buttons, with tattered silk and netting tied to the spine. An art deco style, vintage dress clip acts as the closure for the book.
Interior pages feature 7 different old wallpapers throughout. The pages are pretty as is, or ready to use to fill with your art work, notes, or photos.
Old lace in warm shades, a velvet pansy, taken from my garden of floral hats, and crinkled pumpkin spice colored ribbon finish the book.
