Old Books , Lace, and Fabric
It was really easy for me to put together a craft Tuesday night with an organized workshop and a clear counter to work on!
I’m really loving it, just hope I can keep it half-way clutter free.
Now I’m putting this post together Wednesday night and it is going to be short and with just the facts ma’am.
I had a wonderful day today with my two granddaughters but I’m a little bit tired right now
I have some hardback books…
……and some paperback books
I tore the covers from a large hardback book and 2 of the paperback books.
I then aged the outer edges and top page with Caromal Colours Toner.
Lace, linens, burlap, pillowcases, etc., pulled from my fabric shelf.
(note to self……put this stuff back on the shelf….and do it neatly)
I cut bits and pieces from here and there, then used Elmer’s glue to adhere them to the books.
I also went through my buttons and jewelry jars for other embellishments.
That is an earring on the top right corner of the book.
I wrapped a velvet ribbon around each book. I tied the two paperback books together.
I made the pretty paper flowers on the wall and shared them on an earlier post.
I love the feminine, soft, yet colorful look of the books.
What about you?
I love hearing from my readers, and I read all comments.
