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. 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 and 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 the Book of Curiosities 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 doesn’t really look like bookpages as you wouldnt see any text, but it still gives a hint to the theme I think.
