Romantic Book Bundle

This piece is comprised of multiple things that had nothing to do with each other originally.  It sold quickly at one of my shows.  It's a very simple assemblage, that has a romantic vibe.



I don't have a before, but, I started with a book fragment.




It had no cover, and some of the pages were missing.  I used watered down pink paint to tint the edges of the pages.  You can read one of my previous post on using paint as "dye" HERE.

I also tinted a salvaged French book page and decoupaged it to the spine.  A ballerina image from The Graphics Fairy was used for the cover.




I even tinted the hemp twine slightly, and, finished the bundle with a few sprigs of lavender.




I thought about adding something more, but, didn't have time.

Obviously, the lady who purchased it, thought it was fine the way it was.

Simply romantic.

  4. Rosemary! I think this book is a prize! How fragile and vintage looking with the perfect "Rosemary" additions to make it a piece of art! I would like this for my oval cherry side table that sits next to my lovely distressed hutch!
