So wanted to try this idea of fastening 2 chunky box canvases together with a hinge to make a book! The most exciting part is the nook at the back of the canvases which is then inside!
First, I used Mermaid fresco over french Roast with crackle glaze for the edges and did some ageing with distress inks.
For the front cover I glued torn pieces of vintage papers and music and added lace, lots of embellies
and a LP lady.
For the back, I glued some torn vintage paper, added 2 LP images, ribbon, vintage buttons, photo and key.
For the inside, I painted French Roast into the recesses and made copies of some family photos....my Mother's photos of souls that I sadly do not know!
Lots of ageing went on and bits and bobs added. Found that I was short of bits and bobs! need to visit charity shops!
This shows the handles and the Crackle! Oh, and forgot to mention Treasure Gold!
I thought about Julie Ann while creating this as her style has influenced me! Might do another one and weave a story into it!
Thanks for looking!
