Art journal kit with painted canvas cover and wicked witch
This book is hand crafted from top to bottom, starting with an acrylic flow paint canvas board, cut in half and turned into the front and back covers. The spine is made from vintage black velvet, with a layer of heavy tape to strengthen it. Over that, is a layer of natural canvas. The interior of the book is lined with canvas and filled with sturdy, white cardstock, tied into the spine with black ribbons.
The ties are adorned with bundles of gold and black lace, along with a double row of the same lace along the bottom of the top cover.
The bewitching girl is a high quality copy of a scanned of an old photo. The young lady is actually a relative of my sister's husband and she let me use the picture. (of course, her face wasn't originally green, that was done with markers)
I've embellished it with a hat cut from old text, shadowed with markers and glitter. Its hat band is lace with a speckled feather and sequins. Her scarf is black net, her buttons are crystals, and the corner of the book holds a black flower taken from an old hat.
A ruffle, cut from a 1930s dress, gathered black lace, and some black velvet trim the bottom and side of the front cover. It ties shut with black ribbon topped off a vintage rhinestone cluster.
