book of curiosities...
I started work on one of the fab book boxes, using graphic45 scrapbook papers. I have found this "Olde curiosity shoppe" range, very inspiring for altered art. And you can make something very impressive with very little effort. cut, distress, glue....So far I have done the front cover and the spine so I thought I would share it and just post more as I make progress.
I cut the lady in two and articulated her with a brad. made her a bit 3D with dimensional tape on her skirt, before sticking her on the front..
well I am back: got the rest of this done in time so here it is. I decided to keep the inside pretty simple, so it can actually be used to put things inside....
I used some of the "large collage sheet" for the surround. I know it doesnt really look like bookpages as you wouldnt see any text, but it still gives a hint to the theme I think.
Supplies from calico Crafts:

Versamagic inks HERE (jumbo java to colour the spine and gingerbread to distress the edges of all the collage work)
